If you decided to build integrations on your own, the costs may be substantial. If you have a development team, it’s likely they are busy at work with the day-to-day of a SaaS product. If you are a startup, every team member could still be hard at work to keep things moving forward.
It can be a lot of work to develop your own integrations.
Not to mention the hardware, maintenance, updates, storage costs, the list goes on and on. If you can benefit from the available APIs, but feel like it would be too much to tackle on your own, it’s clear that you could benefit from an external service.
Essentially, your integrations and even a directory/marketplace displaying them to your users can be handled by partnering with a service. All of the value added without the hours of your developers (or a contractor’s) time.
Here is a small list of additional benefits you can receive from a quality provider:
- Cost-Efficiency: With an outside service, you’ll have less hardware and maintenance issues.
- Insights: A good IPaas will allow you to view data about which integrations are being utilized and how.
- Easy Updates: Patches and updates should be regular and reliable (also hassle free for your business).
- Scalablility: It’s as easy for one integration as it is for dozens.
