Questions you should be asking when selecting an integration Technology
With such a vast array of integration, API and DevOps technologies available today, it is no longer necessary to adapt ourselves to the technologies on offer. Instead we should choose the technology that most closely meets our needs.
Is this technology the most effective way to deliver the outcomes and capabilities we seek, and it does align to our enterprise architecture vision?
Are there sufficient skills available in house or by third parties to support the initial implementation and ongoing utilisation of this technology?
Does the vendor provide the stability and vision required to ensure this is a safe long term investment?
What is the true cost of ownership of this technology when considering operating model, licensing, support, third parties and infrastructure dependencies?
