Today's companies are increasingly "integrating the Cloud". SaaS to SaaS, on-premise to SaaS, and multi-platform integrations are commonplace. This EMA Radar examines the technologies companies are using to accomplish these integrations, as well as the scenarios, roles, and processes that are driving this evolution.

This research represents a new "take" on integration that goes beyond traditional on-premise integration products in terms of versatility and ease of use. Readers should note that this is less a head-to-head product evaluation than a buying guide aimed at helping companies make product choices that are in line with their specific requirements.

The products in this paper are diverse, yet share common functionality addressing hybrid Cloud integration and governance. For example, they vary considerably in terms of the types of integrations and platforms they support, ideal users, breadth of technology coverage, manageability, and cost efficiency.

What they do have in common is that they provide the underlying "glue" supporting hybrid Cloud implementations in a variety of permutations. While most focus on data- or application-level integration for Software as a Service (SaaS), several also have some level of support for Platform as a Service (PaaS) and/or Infrastructure as Service (IaaS) integrations as well. The goal is to enable readers to make more informed choices in developing a "short list" of vendors to evaluate, regardless of what types of Cloud integration projects they have in mind.
