Thank you everyone who joined us for our latest webinar! Last week, in the business software 101 series, we presented some of the basic methods available to businesses looking to integrate their web-based applications. An important thing to keep in mind is there are a multitude of applications available with different levels of complexity and customization to meet your business needs. The commercial and Service-asa-Software (SaaS) tools discussed were generally on the higher end of the customization and complexity scale (Ex: Cloudpipes, Neuron ESB, Elastic.io, and Mulesoft).
For demonstration purposes, Rahul showed participants and viewers how to create a relatively simple integration between Trello (a project planning tool) and Slack (a communication tool) via the use of Zapier (an application commonly used to integrate two or more web applications). This integration is one we use at Anant to quickly add cards to our Trello boards which we use for brainstorming and general product iteration. It is a useful integration for business users, assuming they use Slack, because they can easily push an idea directly from Slack to Trello without switching applications.
The integration above is useful for coming back to things later. Fortunately, we also share things on our blog and if you weren’t able to join us or want to review the materials again you can find them below for future reference.
We plan to continue the series next month with a webinar focused on the use of web portals and dashboards to display your business information in a single, unified location. We’ll also touch on common challenges businesses face in managing their information and look at some web portal and dashboard technology currently available. You can register here for the Friday, October 14, event that will kick off at 10am EDT.
If you can’t make the next webinar try one of our other events or join us for donuts on September 30 at our next business strategy breakfast roundtable.
