Not all integrations are created equal: 4 layers of app integrations with SaaS platforms


I’d like to propose a framework for evaluating the depth of an integration between an app and a cloud platform as follows: This model considers integrations on four levels, starting at the bottom with integrating data and working our way up to governing the collection of apps being integrated: Data : passing fields, records, or other packets of information between systems. Exchanging data is a relatively rote, mechanical process. governance –> grammar.
