“Over 80% of enterprise Business Operations leaders, including those from service delivery, manufacturing, and supply chain, say data integration is critical to their success!” – Forbes
Organizations today are modernizing their entire IT systems to achieve efficiency across business units! And the key reason why they are involved in an IT modernization project is to improve their data exchange capabilities, enhance partner relationships, and bring in new tech stacks that will drive their organizational agility!
If you are planning to dive into an IT modernization endeavor, you need to understand why modernizing your integration platform must be given prime importance!
“When your businesses continue to grow at an accelerating speed, the need to adopt newer technologies also increases! But your existing legacy integration frameworks are highly incompatible and reluctant to adopt or interact with your new technologies! Even if you try to make the systems work together, the process will only become cumbersome, and expose your enterprise to security risks!”
If you want to stay ahead in the industry and achieve a competitive edge, you need to switch to a modern data integration platform that is both scalable, secure, and feature-rich!
Already into a thought of spearheading your data integration platform modernization? We got you! In this blog, we have explained the pitfalls of legacy data integration platforms, why you should adopt a modern data architecture, and how can Talend help you achieve a future-proof data strategy that will prevail at all odds!
Most of the legacy integration platforms are reaching their ‘End of Life’. If you are stuck with these platforms, you will have to spend a large amount of your organizational budget for its associated maintenance costs, which will keep increasing in the upcoming days.
With legacy platforms, you will not be having sufficient documentation of the system transformation, updates, and patches. Without proper documentation of the transformation and updates, all your efforts to modernize and upgrade the platform will become highly cumbersome and time-consuming. Provided there are only a handful of resources who are proficient with these platforms. Even if you manage to get skilled experts, retaining them would cost a fortune for your enterprise!
Traditional data integration platforms can slow down your business efficiency and hinder enterprise productivity at various levels. The reasons are…
If you have been using legacy systems from the beginning, you may tend to have several siloed operations that are rigid and inflexible. In this case, implementing DevOps best practices, CI/CD tools, and pipelines can become a challenge for your enterprise. Eventually, this will also slow down the pace of your software delivery processes and other connected integrations.
Legacy platforms are highly prone to security threats! As most of these systems are reaching EOL, your vendors will no longer support you or provide much-needed updates. Even if the latest security updates are available, as mentioned earlier there will be a scarcity of skilled experts who can perform the upgradation. As a result, the platform’s security will continue to deteriorate gradually!
Switching from legacy to modern data integration platforms can yield your enterprises a lot of business benefits!
