Cloud integration refers to the process of connecting different applications, data sources, and systems that are hosted on cloud-based infrastructure.
Cloud integration involves a range of activities, such as data mapping, transformation, and synchronization, as well as the development of application programming interfaces (APIs) and connectors that enable different systems to communicate with each other.
Cloud integration can be performed in several ways, such as:
Point-to-point integration – Connecting two cloud systems directly to each other using APIs or other integration tools.
Hub-and-spoke integration – Connecting multiple cloud systems to a central hub or platform that serves as a mediator between them.
Hybrid integration – Connecting cloud systems to on-premise systems to enable seamless data flow between them.
