Integration platform as a service (iPaaS) provides a centralized console to manage and integrate cloud-based applications. These tools connect cloud applications and services and control integration flows. They can speed up product development by integrating existing tools, and increase data volume by utilizing external tools and resources. Companies use these tools to scale performance needs, add product functionality, and structure application integrations. Features or data can be added or removed quickly, reducing failover, downtime, and development time. iPaaS provides the infrastructure for creating connections and deploying software applications within the cloud.
