Gartner released its 2023 Magic Quadrant™ for Integration Platform as a Service, which assessed 16 vendors on their ability to execute and completeness of vision. Here is a summary of the release.
Gartner defines integration platform as a service (iPaaS) as a vendor-managed cloud service that enables end users to implement integrations between a variety of applications, services, and data sources.
iPaaS connects disparate applications, services, and data sources to enable information to flow between them. iPaaS enables end users of the platform to connect a variety of applications, services, and data sources for at least one of the three main uses of integration technology:
- Data consistency to ensure applications are operating with the right information
- Multistep process to automate business processes and workflows
- Composite service to create services exposed as APIs or events
These integration processes, data pipelines, workflows, automations, and services are most commonly created via intuitive low-code or no-code developer environments, though some vendors provide more complex developer tooling.
According to the research mentioned above, the 16 providers rank in the following categories:
- Software AG
