System Integration

System integration combines hardware, software, networking resources, and IT infrastructure into one system. It ensures all these technologies work together as part of a single framework. There are two main types of system integration: - Horizontal system integration creates a new system that serves a single interface for all other systems.  - Vertical system integration combines subsystems based on their functionality.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About System Integration

System integration removes many of the problems of disparate systems and subsystems, such as the costs and labor required to upgrade and manage multiple systems. SMBs can also improve productivity, security, data compliance, customer service, and teamwork when investing in system integration.
