Infographics: Why Are IT System Integration Costs So High?

Ana Neto Products and Solutions Leave a Comment

Businesses around the world spend trillions of dollars on IT each year and most of these expenses are system integration costs.

Our research found that many companies are still wasting money on custom software development, while others spend hundreds of billions for ineffective integration.

Distribution of spending in IT
On average, businesses use more than 22 software applications

On average, small businesses use 22 software applications for all kinds of purposes. This number goes up to 788 for large enterprises with more than 50,000 employees.

To work properly, these should be integrated, and that is one of the biggest challenges for IT departments.

THE INTEGRATION CHALLENGE

When dealing with IT systems integration, you have to deal with multiple applications running on multiple platforms, and that makes any “simple IT integration project” not simple at all.

INTEGRATION IS STRATEGIC

By 2024, 65% of organizations will consider spending on integration capabilities as strategic investments.

In 2019, this represented 40%, so there is a growing number of organizations that consider integration as strategic.

#1 PROBLEM
CUSTOM DEVELOPMENT COSTS

To reduce software costs, many companies decide to limit their choices to off-the-shelf applications. Nonetheless, they soon discover end-users need system integration between many (if not all!) of those applications. Should you do that integration with custom coding?
