RESEARCH PAPER: Super iPaaS: A Growing IT Integration Trend

By Robert Kramer, Patrick Moorhead - November 28, 2023

Traditional integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) offers foundational capabilities for app and data integration across multiple environments but falls short in supporting complex integrations, advanced data management, real-time processing, and AI and machine learning (ML). By contrast, the emerging “Super iPaaS” category goes further, introducing enhanced features to support the most involved integrations, refined API management, and AI and ML for automation. It is not merely an integration platform but a comprehensive solution that caters to technical nuances and the modern business’s evolving needs.
