The State Of B2B Integration

Most Enterprises Plan Imminent B2B Upgrades To Address Key Issues

    Why Read This Report

    Forrester surveyed 300 senior IT managers in North America, EMEA, and Asia Pacific regarding the state of their business-to-business (B2B) integration infrastructure and plans for future enhancements. We found that respondents are facing a number of business and technical challenges that are driving two key trends: widespread plans to enhance B2B integration capability and a growing role for comprehensive integration solutions (CISes) in supporting end-to-end integration, including B2B. Application development and delivery professionals should consider whether these trends apply locally as they plan for B2B infrastructure improvements inside their organizations.
