The Role of Self-service Data Integration in Driving IT Modernization
Your organization probably has specific conventional systems that, as time passes, have been customized and firmly embedded into various processes and operations.
True, moving away from these technological systems can be daunting. However, it’s a necessity because these legacy systems can trigger security issues, delay data-driven operations, increase support and maintenance costs, and become inflexible.
This blog post will help you understand the importance of IT modernization and how reimagined technological solutions can accelerate your business process.
IT modernization is the process of keeping an eye on the technological environment and workflows, reimagining them, and identifying the particular systems or workflows that need to be improved or substituted.
Many tend to confuse IT modernization with digital transformation. However, IT modernization and digital transformation are not the same.
A digital transformation is a tactical approach within IT modernization where operations that rely on manual techniques and paper-based methods are reimagined and reimplemented in ways that are fully digital and automatable.
Why Is IT Modernization Significant in Business?
IT modernization is important for all businesses. Why?
First, by doing away with your legacy solutions to facilitate IT modernization, you’ll be able to cut delays and reduce overhead costs.
Normally, with traditional solutions in place, IT integrators perform custom coding and build extensive data mappings, increasing the length of the process by weeks or months. This delay puts immense pressure on the IT teams and increases business expenses. Also, customers wait to receive the value they’ve been promised, which ultimately hurts revenue growth and can even lead to costly churn.
Second, IT modernization enables your organization to innovate as opportunities arise. Your business needs to be flexible in order to adapt to emerging changes in the market. Modern IT infrastructure can actually help organizations go a long way by ensuring that no individual system can limit your technological capabilities.
Third, it enables less technically skilled to take control of operations, thus freeing IT teams to focus on more high-value business priorities.
The role of reimagined data integration solutions comes into play here. Self-service data integration solutions use artificial intelligence and a no/low-code approach to enable non-technical business users to implement data connections much more quickly. At the same time, IT can devote its time to drive more strategic business priorities.
How Can Self-service Integration Support Your IT Modernization Initiatives?
Self-service data integration solutions enable non-technical business users to implement data connections with speed and precision. Unlike traditional data integration solutions, self-service-powered ones take the help of pre-built application connectors, shared templates, dashboards, intuitive screens, and AI data mapping to create data connections much more quickly.
During that time, IT teams are freed to devote their time to more high-value, innovation-driven business tasks.
What’s more, self-service integration solutions enable non-techie business users to onboard customers 80 percent faster. By connecting with customers quickly, you can easily meet their needs and requirements, delighting them and improving their lifetime value. These happy customers are more likely to buy more products or services from the company, thereby accelerating revenue growth.
