B2A cloud integration service
Connect once. Reach anything.
The nature of enterprise integration has changed. Modern companies increasingly need to integrate a diverse ecosystem of external systems, including customers, suppliers, partners, 3rd party data sources and devices, as well as internal systems, such as cloud and on-premises applications and data warehouses.
Connecting systems that are owned and hosted by parties outside the enterprise, in particular, strains existing integration tools and approaches and most of them are failing. According to a study by IDC, only 52% of integration projects are delivered successfully on time and on budget.1
OpenText™ Trading Grid™ helps manage this complexity by combining a modern, unified integration platform with a managed service delivery model to provide both the technical capabilities and specialist skills needed to get the job done. Trading Grid builds on decades of OpenText expertise in connecting external B2B operations while adding modern data and application integration technologies for a true business-to-anything integration capability using a single, modern cloud platform. Connect once. Reach anything.
