Our Uncover the Power of Your Data event was the place to be and provided an opportunity to connect with peers while getting the latest updates from Rojo, SAP and Splunk roadmaps. The event offered a unique chance for Integration leaders across Europe to share their success stories, exchange knowledge, best-practices and concrete recommendations on coping with the fast pace of digital integration. From an inspiring view of the Barcelona skyline, we realised that the future of integration is looking bright.
During the event, Guus Groeneweg of Heineken realised a great case with Splunk and Rojo. Our strategic partners SAP and Splunk presented their platforms’ latest features, future roadmaps and answered many questions from the audience. Everyone in the room was connected with the challenges they face at their organisations today, such as the continuous need to add more data and systems and integrate them, which creates the need for transparency and insights across business processes. And that’s precisely the type of use cases we heard about how Rojo, together with our clients and partners, are doing that in practice.
Let’s look at some of the event’s most important points and key takeaways.
1. Integration is everywhere
Digital Integration is everywhere, even though sometimes we might not see it. Whether you are brewing beer, making the best Cuban rum, roasting coffee beans, producing pharmaceutical products, transporting logistics, or operating in the hospitality sector. Our businesses are inter-connected, and many things make us happy (like buying new products, drinking coffee or beer), thanks to the wonders of system and data integration.
We all agree that digital integration is everywhere, regardless of industry or geography. But let’s zoom in to uncover even more drivers for digital integration:
2. Large-scale move to the cloud
Supply chains are under high pressure, massive adoption and move to the cloud, the increased pace of business and technology innovation, cheaper and accessible computing power, and the vast amount of data growing.
Connecting them is only half the challenge. It’s essential to monitor any anomalies that could hamper the business. The continuous need for digital integration across all business domains applies to all industries. We all have to deal with the critical role of integration within and beyond the enterprise.
3. Evolving out of legacy
Part of digital transformation means tearing down old monoliths, which involves modernising legacy applications, moving to SaaS solutions, and returning to best-of-breed solutions. But, in the end, they still must work together. While all these systems are sourced from different vendors, they introduce new data models and a variety of connectivity protocols. All of this means that we need to glue all these moving parts together to run smoothly and deliver value to the business and customers. Think of it as traffic control for a highway of data.
4. Uncovering insights from data
Now that you have all these multiple hubs connected, you need to start monitoring all those hotspots, observe and uncover insights about what’s happening in between them. Discover new patterns and predict non-events before they happen. The least desirable outcome is for the end user to be at the sore end of it. By that point, your end-users might start complaining about integrations not working, creating bottlenecks in their business processes, and thus affecting revenue and customer satisfaction. Hence, keeping on top of your data and constantly learning from those insights is essential for intelligent business practices.
5. Best-connected breeds success
And finally, without stating the obvious, successful enterprises are best-connected enterprises. Enterprise integration is a fundamental and transformative capability for all organisations seeking to thrive in their digitalisation journey. At Rojo, we enable organisations to reach that goal.
