As one of the top IT trends, cloud computing brings with it opportunities for a variety of solutions that boast greater flexibility and access, lower cost, faster deployment time, and less complicated upgrades, as compared with their on-premise counterparts. In fact, it’s difficult to read much on current practices without seeing statistics like this one:
“73% are reallocating funds from on-premise budgets to cloud-based initiatives.”
So whether our clients are looking at Software as a Service (SaaS) applications like Salesforce CRM or Platform as a Service (PaaS) technologies like Force.com, we want to provide them with the tools they need to achieve flawless integration among these solutions, along with the other cloud-based and on-premise applications they need every day.
Whichever solutions they choose, the business requires accurate data, across the cloud (and on premise), and synchronization of that data to all the places it’s needed, to be accessed by everyone who needs it – and this is as critical as the solution you choose.
Poor data integration not only threatens the value of technology investments by rendering them less accurate, but also gnaws away at potential efficiencies when users don’t believe the data is accurate or reliable and resist adoption.
This is where our Cloud Integration Solution comes in. If you’re looking to receive the benefits of cloud-based technologies without sophisticated, expensive IT resources to ‘make it happen,’ Tokara has exactly the solution you need.
Remember that whether your upcoming deployment is simple or complex, large or small, it will have critical requirements related to loading, synchronizing, and potentially even removing data. For example, if your business is looking at a Salesforce implementation, all of the data from legacy on-premise and cloud-based applications have to be brought into Salesforce.
But once that data populates the application, it’s in a constant state of change – and each and every change must be not only available via Salesforce, but also through other integrated applications the business relies on – from HR or ERP systems to Business Intelligence and Marketing Automation applications. And these changes have to take place (i.e., be ‘synched’) in real time in order for the data to be deemed reliable and ultimately provide optimal value to your teams and the business.
This is what we do for clients every day.
Our CRM consultants are masters of the technology with no fewer than 12 years of CRM experience under our belts (Salesforce, Pivotal, and pretty much every other CRM you could name). But more than that, we understand your business use cases, and we are able to use that insight to ensure that your business and your team are able to see maximum value from the CRM (and other technology) investments you’ve made. We really do make it that easy for your team and your business.
If this sounds like your situation and you’d like greater detail on the performance benefits our CRM clients are seeing as they migrate data and systems, and integrate their CRM applications with other critical applications, we’d love to speak to you.
