Managed Service Providers (MSPs) play a large role in helping numerous sectors of the industry with network navigation. Factoring such things as increasing data volume, variety, velocity and complexity into the equation can easily complicate things, and that’s where planning for the future comes into play.
While these trends continue to evolve to the cloud in 2013, similarly, the market will be increasingly seeing vendors and service providers unite to evolve their offerings beyond the private cloud – or at least this is what Bob Renner, president and CEO of Liaison, confidently predicts.
Liaison Technologies is a longstanding provider of global integration and data management solutions, providing unique and high-value ways to securely integrate, transform and manage complex business information both on-premise or in the cloud. Further, Renner played a key role in raising more than $100 million in funding for the business, serving as the company’s CTO in its startup phase from 2000-2002, when he was then appointed to CEO.
Holding a proactive and healthy relationship with a Managed Service Provider is paramount to avoiding critical failure in cloud integration. Based on fifteen years of IT experience and feedback from both industry-leading analysts and enterprise customers, Renner believes a disruptive shift will make its way across the industry as we welcome 2013 for a few important reasons:
Reason # 1
Enterprise IT will soon realize “there is no ‘silver bullet’ for cloud integration.” He adds, “As companies continue to move to the cloud, they will seek complete data integration solutions instead of distinguishing between application and business process integration.”
Due to forecasts expecting 90 percent of government-funded Health Information Exchange (HIEs) to fail by 2016, Renner sees it as a no-brainer that healthcare organizations will turn to private sector data integration solutions. “While many have purchased applications to prove Meaningful Use Stage 1, they lack the integration and interoperability to aggregate data and connect the necessary entities together, enabling data to become actionable and helping to improve the care continuum,” Renner explains.
Increased integration complexity will ultimately mean an increased need for additional managed services. “With more regulation, security considerations and an increased diversification and federation of data, companies will see a renewed focus on blended solutions that combine technology, people and processes, particularly as it relates to the marriage of integration and data management,” Renner explains.
A huge split will come across the industry between services companies and what Renner calls “their software brethren.” He continues, “The increased pressure to evolve will drive a large split across the industry between those who are able to successfully embrace the cloud business models and those who simply cannot.”
