There's no doubt that the fundamentals of how larger businesses run have changed seismically in the past few years. The internet has become a formidable tool in how we communicate with our employees and our customers, and the software as a service (SaaS) model has become a critical component in the day to day affairs of most businesses. The problem is that every company's infrastructure is different, and managing the integration of your third party services can be a complicated affair draining resources from your IT and engineering teams. The integrated platform as a service (iPaaS) model has become a big business, helping enterprises neatly incorporate the functionality of their third party services directly into their company's infrastructure, and built.io has established as a name for themselves as one of the best iPaaS platforms around. Their platform is built upon three major components that help you create a tech stack that takes your third party services and applies them to the specific needs of your business model. Built.io flow uses a simple workflow methodology to integrate their API connectors into your existing company infrastructure. Here you can map out all the components of your business' infrastructure and use the smart slotted interface to figure out where built.io's APIs best fit. That allows you to target your connectors to specific departments or teams. The setup process is simple. A drag and drop interface allows you to create flow lines between different integrations easily without having to rely on coding knowledge. A simple window on the left of the interface gives you access to your third party services as well as specific functions within those services like SMS messaging. Built.io boasts that, through the utilization of flow, they can take a process that sometimes requires weeks and accomplish it within a matter of minutes. This data mapping also makes it easier to integrate various SaaS services which might share information but make use of different nomenclature, expediting the process of interaction between different programs that might not natively play well together. Working hand in hand with flow is Headless, the content management services (CMS) component of the built.io ecosystem. The API utilized by built.io is a critical aspect of this model, and it lets you convert your existing application (complete with API integrated third party services) to match the various devices and versions used by your customers. Turnkey integrations are built directly into the Headless system. The final component of built.io is the built.io Backend, which helps you manage what's going on under the hood. If Headless is designed to provide your users with a clean and effective experience regardless of the complicated SaaS integrations at play,Bbackend is designed to help you build the infrastructure that helps your apps run. It utilizes a flexible infrastructure and eminent scaleability.
