Specialized Cloud-based software that connects disparate systems in order to facilitate business processes. In the context of ecommerce, iPaaS solutions could take an order placed in an ecommerce platform and sync it to an ERP system for fulfillment. iPaaS platforms often have pre-built “connectors” for a variety of technologies and provide an easy-to-use interface for designing connections between systems. In cases where a connection to a specific technology doesn’t exist, developers can often create their own connectors that can be used by the iPaaS platform. Finally, iPaaS solutions can not only move data between systems but can also be used to manipulate or transform that data along the way (e.g. for data cleansing, data enrichment, etc.).
