These findings are not surprising considering the heterogeneity that exists in many organisations - even small ones - and the explosion of data volume, variety, velocity and complexity. As a result, application development efforts relating to integration take too long, lead to unanticipated costs, and involve too many manual steps.
There are many different application types that are deployed differently. They can be deployed in the public or private cloud, and the same is true for data. It can exist on the on-premise network or in the cloud or both. To place the burden on the application developer to navigate this environment and to address all of the different application development scenarios is a recipe for disaster. As such, it is important for an organisation to consider how to integrate all data across the application development infrastructure.
