Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS)

Definition - What does Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) mean?

Integration platform as a service (iPaaS) is a cloud-delivered service or a software-as-a-service (SaaS) option that allows a system to make various applications and software components compatible. This type of service has become a value-added part of comprehensive enterprise packages from various cloud computing vendors.

Techopedia explains Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS)

In general, the concept of software integration has been a major part of the advances in enterprise systems and has posed a number of questions to engineers. The more a software system is integrated, the better it functions. Developers talk about eliminating information silos by allowing data to flow freely through a software architecture. Another related concept is that users can communicate more freely between integrated pieces of software. Integration can also help with security and other issues.

IPaaS often includes dedicated compatibility tools for sets of software applications offering cloud services. IPaaS tools may allow for messaging between platforms to customize data transfer. As iPaaS is becoming relevant to many businesses, it is something they may talk about with their cloud vendors when it comes to putting together an overall cloud package for an enterprise client.
