There is no “one size fits all” approach to enterprise integration. A complete approach requires skills and capabilities to bring all technology components together in a unified, complete solution.

Our integration consulting team is expert at creating fit-for-purpose integration strategies for customers and delivering integration platforms that meet their needs and expectations.

From integration strategy development at the beginning of an engagement, establishing standards and governance, through integration development, testing, deployment and ongoing monitoring and management, we offer a complete end-to-end capability for enterprise integration requirements.

The right strategy from the outset to ensure integration goals are achieved and maintained. 


For many, the reality of cloud is here and the service-based approach for IT is becoming the preferred alternative to an internally-driven software-based architecture, as enterprises look to downsize the operational side of their IT portfolios.

Legacy application portfolios are hybrid, with many organizations having to integrate between multiple diverse endpoints. While some organizations with existing integration skills are finding that their established on-premises integration practices can be used to integrate with SaaS applications, much more are finding that their existing approaches are just not delivering fast enough to meet these new challenges. For organizations that never established systematic integration practices on-premises, the thought of having to start now is daunting. The large costs, long delivery times and complex infrastructure builds associated with traditional on-premise approaches are just not in line with today's lean approaches and timelines.

In one sense, Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) can be thought of as the next-generation approach to integration and connectivity, supporting the new composition and consumption models brought about by Cloud computing. Indeed, it addresses many of the same issues as traditional integration projects of the past, however it is a fundamentally different architecture, designed using new techniques including loose-coupling and microservices patterns.

An iPaaS is typically used for cloud service integration (CSI) and application to application (A2A) integration scenarios. Increasingly, they are also being used for business to business (B2B) integration, mobile application integration (MAI), API publishing and Internet of Things (IoT) integration scenarios. Therefore, application leaders responsible for integration should look at iPaaS when it comes to:

  • Supporting line of business/departmental adaptive CSI, B2B, APIs, MAI and, increasingly, IoT projects.
  • Looking for rapid and low-cost resolution of simple integration requirements.
  • Reducing capital investments in, and ongoing operation costs for, integration technology.
  • Complementing established on-premises integration middleware with platforms targeting CSI, MAI, IoT and API requirements — to create a Hybrid Integration Platform (HIP), in the context of a bimodal integration strategy, to support both traditional systematic and adaptive integration requirements.
The more organizations adopt cloud and SaaS applications, the more appealing vendor-managed iPaaS solutions become. Today, all the large, traditional integration vendors have offerings in the enterprise iPaaS market, focused on the following use cases:
  • To provide flexible development and test environments to allow greater agility for existing integration clients in their on-premises integration software.
  • To provide a "lift-and-shift" option for existing integration clients to outsource the operations of a traditional integration platform to the vendor.
  • To counter the penetration of enterprise iPaaS pure-play providers in large organizations, especially at the line-of-business/departmental level
  • To address the SMB market, which has previously found these vendors' solutions too expensive or too complex to deploy.


Microservices or a Microservices Architecture can not only increase the functionality of your development but, help you bake in flexibility and agility. This is achieved by dividing a single application up into a set of smaller component Microservices, that run independently but communicate through APIs.  

SEPARATE COMPONENTS - Create faster and more agile development cycles. Microservices enable loosely-coupled elements that can be independently developed, replaced and scaled individually.

IMPROVE APPLICATION RESILIENCE - Microservices improve resilience as each individual service is compartmentalized, ensuring that faults can quickly be identified to their specific service and corrected, without the need to unpick the code for the entire application.

BUILT IN FLEXIBILITY - You are no longer locked into a specific development path or technology stack. Your Dev teams can introduce new stacks and swap out services without the need to re-engineer from the bottom up. 

DISTRIBUTED TEAMS - Microservices make it possible for distributed teams to understand the application as it is not built as one single package, but instead a series of smaller more manageable components.

BUSINESS FIRST- Microservices are not organised around the technical capabilities of a particular product, but rather business capabilities and outcomes. 

MODULAR AND REUSABLE- Microservices are project agnostic, aligned to specific business outcomes. This enables them to be reused in multiple projects, providing time and cost savings. 

EASE OF DEPLOYMENT - The compartmentalised approach to Microservices makes the scope of development smaller, simplifying deployment and improving rollout speed.

If you are looking to speed up your development cycles, enhance flexibility and improve your outcomes, Certus can help you integrate a wide range of Certus IP, third party and custom built Microservices into your software and application development processes.
