This Ovum Decision Matrix is a comprehensive evaluation to help enterprise/solution/integration architects, integration competency center/integration center of excellence directors/managers, and line-of-business leaders select an iPaaS solution best suited to their specific requirements.


  • iPaaS continues to expand beyond cloud service integration, and is increasingly being used for hybrid integration scenarios involving a mix of on-premise, SaaS, B2B, and/or mobile application integration. The role of iPaaS in enterprise integration continues to expand, as evidenced by the increase in the average subscription/deal size for relatively mature iPaaS solutions.
  • Agility and not just total cost of ownership (TCO) reduction is a key factor driving a shift toward iPaaS.
