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.
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.
