Integration is one of the ugly sides of cloud computing and one of the technology's biggest challenges. However, integration issues can be addressed with proper tools, planning and good technology. You have to consider the fundamentals of integration first, including the ability to connect with both source and target systems, such as Salesforce.com and SAP, or Amazon EC2 and Oracle, and then how to extract data from the source system, mediate the semantics and technical differences, and publish the data to the target. 

Integration into the cloud was the focus of the panel discussion at Capital Connection Forum organized by IBF Media on 31st of August. The panel saw a representation from cloud startups, investment agencies and large enterprises. Sharad Sharma Entrepreneur in Residence, Canaan Partners was the moderator of the panel discussion. T C Meenakshisundaram Founder, Managing Director, IDG Ventures India and Sharad spoke about the topic from the investors’ point of view. They were of the opinion that Cloud computing is a paradigm shift in which IT works and this is going to change the entrepreneurial landscape. The other panelists were Venkatesh from Wipro, Subbu Goparaju from Infosys, Ram Subramanian from SuccessFactors and Venki Muthanna from AppPoint Solutions. The event was part of IBF Media’s Technology Series and brings timely information on the latest trends to senior technology and IT professionals as well as venture investors looking for investment opportunities.
