Ovum Report Highlights the Compelling Value Proposition and Architectural Innovation of Liaison’s B2B Integration Managed Services
ATLANTA, March 6, 2017 – Liaison Technologies, a leading provider of cloud-based integration and data management solutions, today announced that it has been recognized as a leading B2B integration managed services provider in the new Ovum report titled, “B2B Integration Managed Services Provider Profiles.” Conducted by Ovum, an international IT research and consulting firm, the report highlights the evolution and current state of the growing cloud-based B2B integration services market.
According to the Ovum report, one of the key factors driving B2B integration outsourcing is significantly lowered costs: “From the perspective of TCO, cloud-based integration services under a managed services model can reduce operating costs by at least 30% to 40% compared to maintaining an in-house B2B integration team with the requisite expertise.”
The Liaison ALLOY™ Platform achieved high scores across key technological, execution and market impact assessment criteria, including core integration and associated capabilities, trading partner community management, innovation, and operational and enterprise fit.
According to Ovum, Liaison offers a good blend of rich integration functionality and proven competency in managed services delivery, which places it as a provider that should be included in short lists aimed at selecting a comprehensive cloud-based B2B integration managed services provider.
Ovum noted that Liaison’s comprehensive ALLOY™ Platform, combining both integration and data management workflows in a single solution, forms a sound foundation for the delivery of Liaison’s B2B integration managed services. The model, Ovum reports, extends key attributes of integration PaaS (iPaaS) to the data layer and offers agility in responding to changes in business requirements through a microservices architectural approach.
“Liaison’s managed services offer a compelling value proposition and core architectural innovation that has resonated well with its customer base,” said Saurabh Sharma, senior analyst, infrastructure solutions with Ovum. “Liaison’s approach offers flexibility both in terms of pricing and in terms of how various function-specific microservices can be invoked and combined to deliver an end-to-end functionality.”
The Ovum report outlines that from a technological perspective Liaison can compete with any B2B integration managed services provider and is well suited for enterprise service bus (ESB)/enterprise application integration (EAI) extension or replacement.”
“It is extremely gratifying to see our innovative approach and superior value proposition recognized by Ovum,” said Liaison Chief Revenue Officer Rob Consoli. “We look forward to sharing our unmatched depth of integration experience, expertise, and technology with the many leading-edge organizations currently looking to optimize their integration operations through outsourcing.”
The award-winning ALLOY™ Platform supports all other patterns of integration as well, including A2A, EAI, ETL, hybrid, and MFT. ALLOY offers an opportunity to not only replace underperforming legacy B2B integration solutions with a modern cloud solution, as recommended by Ovum, but also to modernize and consolidate other legacy integration operations.
