  • IPaaS is still in its infancy. That means it’s still not well defined as a solution category.
  • Not all iPaaS are created equally. Ovum’s Saurabh Sharma points out that few iPaaS suites actually meet all of the complex integration requirements you need from an integration platform. For instance, not all are multi-tenant or can handle sudden surges in workload.
  • Some SaaS and cloud vendors offer embedded integration using an iPaaS solution.
