G2 Crowd Independent Review Platform Names Liaison ALLOY Platform an iPaaS "Leader"

Inclusion of Liaison's Award-Winning Platform as Leader in iPaaS Group May Signal Expansion of Category to Encompass Comprehensive Data Integration and Management Solutions

ATLANTA, Feb. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Liaison Technologies, a recognized leader in cloud-based integration and data management solutions, today announced that G2 Crowd, an independent technology solution review platform, cited Liaison as a "Leader" in its Grid® for Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) Winter 2018, recognizing Liaison for its leadership and innovation in the iPaaS space. The recognition, representing the voice of real software users, may be an indication of an industry shift in perceptions about what iPaaS software is, expanding the category to encompass comprehensive data integration and management solutions like the award-winning Liaison ALLOY® Platform.

"While some analysts have taken a very narrow view of the iPaaS category, applying the label only to solutions that provide self-service capabilities for citizen integrators, the rest of the world is waking up to the fact that vendors offering a comprehensive solution are solving the real integration and data management challenges enterprises face today in a more meaningful way," said Jonathan Razza, Vice President of Emerging Technologies and ALLOY Program for Liaison. "We're pleased to be named a G2 Crowd iPaaS leader, and we believe the recognition may signal a welcome change in how users and analysts perceive the iPaaS category — an expansion to include platforms like ALLOY that deliver end-to-end solutions to problems that traditional iPaaS software only partially address."

The G2 Crowd Grid® represents the democratic voice of software users.  G2 Crowd rated iPaaS products algorithmically based on data sourced from product reviews shared by G2 Crowd users and data aggregated from online sources and social networks.  For technology buyers, vendors, media, investors, and analysts, the Grid provides benchmarks for product comparison and market trend analysis.

As companies turn to cloud-based applications for more of their business needs, the number and types of integrations required increase exponentially. Data complexity also drives the demand for clean, quality data to power digital transformation.  With integration and data management needs both expanding and converging, traditional integration middleware is no longer equal to the task. iPaaS solutions with self-service capabilities that allow in-house "citizen integrators" to create integration workarounds can bypass bottlenecks in IT.  But the commonly defined iPaaS approach fails to address now equally critical data management requirements and ties up already scarce, costly resources to do integration work. The Liaison ALLOY Platform was built from the ground up with a different vision in mind: to deliver a comprehensive solution that facilitates both integration and data management workflows on a single unified platform.  

Liaison experts complete integration and data management tasks for ALLOY Platform users, enabling companies to more strategically deploy internal resources.   ALLOY features self-service capabilities where they matter most, for gaining insight from data. The Liaison ALLOY Platform empowers enterprises to easily accomplish all patterns of integration, including A2A, B2B, EDI, cloud services, ETL, hybrid and MFT.  ALLOY breaks down silos between data sources, helping companies to consolidate, cleanse and augment both structured and unstructured data from multiple sources.  The result is a cache of high-quality, harmonized data ready to drive data analytics tools and provide business insight.

Citizen integrators leveraging iPaaS self-service capabilities to bypass IT can potentially result in data regulatory compliance issues.  Liaison designed the ALLOY Platform to be dynamically compliant with the most stringent regulations for data security and privacy.  Liaison always maintains the platform to meet or exceed the highest standards set by multiple regulatory entities, including SOC2, PCI DSS, HIPAA and HITRUST. This eases the data compliance burden for all enterprises as they transition to the cloud. Liaison also maintains this level of compliance for its integration and data management teams, whereas traditional iPaaS solutions may offer platform compliance with one or more regulations out of the box, but put users at risk of becoming non-compliant as soon as citizen integrators add code.

The Liaison ALLOY Platform helps users drive digital transformation, innovation and efficiencies with an advanced microservices architecture. Learn more at www.liaison.com/liaison-alloy-platform

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
