Almost every organization uses integration today and – increasingly – that integration is hybrid.

And integration demands continue to grow, organizations are pushing to use more sophisticated solutions, with APIs and microservices playing a vital role. The need for cloud-based integration for this, however, does not negate the still-relevant desire to have strategic corporate applications remain on-premises.

New independent research from Vanson Bourne says that most organizations are likely to be running some form of hybrid integration (64%), versus cloud-only (23%) or on-premises only (12%).

Why hybrid? Productivity and time saving are the key advantages (55%), with improved innovation and greater transparency tied at 49%.

Whereas there are challenges to integration today from security to budgets, almost every company (99%) currently using hybrid integration said that they saw at least one benefit as a result. And most (97%) believe that it would be beneficial to combine the utilization of APIs, integration and microservices together as a bundled solution.
