When Valentine’s Day rolls around, thoughts turn to romantic meals, cards, fresh flowers, boxes of fine chocolate, cuddly teddy bears…and data? Yes, data!
It might not seem romantic at first blush, but if you think about it, it makes sense. Valentine’s Day is a time to show love and appreciation to those who are most important to us and to celebrate their love in return. And what is more important to the success of your business today than data? If you love data and want to celebrate more love from your data in return this year, Valentine’s Day is a good time to start.
Love is all about getting to know someone more intimately. Data in its raw form consists of streams of numbers and disconnected bits of information flowing in from multiple sources and in a variety of formats. But to business leaders who truly want to get to know customers or to gain a deeper understanding of their organizations or their markets, that raw data is the key to something beautiful: insight.
Experiencing greater love from your data starts with bringing all your information together. Liaison’s ALLOY™ Platform is ideal for this task. Designed from the ground up to solve complex integration and data management challenges and to help businesses extend their investments in ESB technology, ALLOY connects on-premises applications to SaaS in a hybrid integration environment. ALLOY also facilitates cloud-to-cloud integration, data integration, enterprise application integration and data management — all on one unified platform.
If you love your data — really love it — and its vital to your organization, you’ll want to keep it safe. ALLOY can help with robust security capabilities, including a tokenization solution that scales up to your business needs in real time, exchanging sensitive data for an equivalent that is less vulnerable to exploitation. Liaison’s ALLOY Platform also provides inherent compliance that ensures that your data, and your integration and data management processes, meet strict industry standards for security and use. These standards include Payment Card Industry (PCI) requirements and HIPAA regulations for protected health information. That’s peace of mind for your business.
Love also means recognizing the value of your loved ones and encouraging them to achieve their full potential. Data is one of the most valuable assets your business has, so you’ll want to make the most of it for maximum benefit to your organization. ALLOY can help here too with cloud-based data management that goes beyond basic integration. ALLOY cleanses and harmonizes data and creates a repository of high quality information that is readily available to all of your applications and business groups. This ensures that your data delivers amazing insights on time to your business that you can leverage with confidence.
Getting ready for Valentine’s Day and planning the perfect celebration isn’t always easy — it can help to have someone arranging things behind the scenes. For example, if you don’t have the time and resources to truly exceed your loved one’s expectations, you might call in a personal shopper, caterer or florist to help in preparing the perfect celebration. The same is true in integrating and managing all the disparate data sources available to organizations today. Your IT team wants to focus on generating insight and other strategic tasks, but they’re too busy connecting end points and acting as data custodians. ALLOY’s managed services can help, taking care of integration and data management behind the scenes so your team can focus on innovation.
On Valentine’s Day, you always want to surprise your loved one with more than they might expect. ALLOY was built with a similar goal in mind for our customers: it exceeds expectations by offering much more than anything currently available on the market, including iPaaS options that leave IT professionals scrambling to build DIY patches for legacy systems.
