The report covers the following areas:

  • Enterprise Application and Integration Market size
  • Enterprise Application and Integration Market trends
  • Enterprise Application and Integration Market industry analysis.

The market share growth by the on-premise segment is significant during the forecast period. Even though the on-premise segment is the dominant segment, it is expected to have slow growth owing to the factors such as high investment requirements related to product purchases, installation, maintenance, and upgrades.

Furthermore, it sees a requirement for organisations to invest in training their in-house IT workforces in order to support users of the relevant software. It is the increasing adoption of the on-premise segment which Technavio sees as driving market growth during 2022-2027.

The rising adoption of cloud-based integration solutions is an emerging trend. There is a significant increase in the adoption of cloud computing solutions across organisations as they digitise their IT infrastructure. In doing the latter they seek cost-effective and flexible solutions.

Some of the key benefits of cloud computing solutions are that it facilitates enterprises to shift their supply chain management (SCM) systems from the on-premises model to the cloud computing model to incorporate with other back-office systems. Furthermore, there is a growing popularity for cloud-based system integration services due to their faster connectivity features to run multiple applications. Such factors are increasingly expected to drive market growth.

Enterprise Times: what does this mean

To Technavio, enhanced efficiency of business processes drives market growth. The significant benefits offered by business software – such as ERP systems, CRM, SCM, BI applications, and payroll and human resources systems – across organisations improve business processes – from customer relationships to supply chains and business intelligence (BI). Some of the key benefits include:

  • data collection and analysis
  • streamlining business processes
  • maintaining communication with customers, colleagues, and suppliers.

However, while Technavio expects such attractions to drive market growth during the forecast period, there are ever rising challenges associated with integration which will, conversely, impede the extent of market growth. For example, there is almost always a higher chance of integration issues arising in an organisation when it tries to implement new enterprise application software in conjunction with any existing application software infrastructure.

Some of the factors leading to integration issues include different versions of application software, OSs and hardware configurations.

Necessarily interoperability challenges arise when integrating new applications – because most organisations still run their business on outdated software systems, applications, programming languages and backend storage systems. Unsurprisingly Technavio expects such factors to hold back market growth.
