Why CIOs are turning to lowcode integration technologies to navigate 2023
Ed Macosky , Chief Innovation Officer , Boomi , sees CIOs turning to low-code integration technology to offset skill shortages , pull in more benefits and minimize disruptions .
With 81 % of executives expecting a recession over the next few months , many businesses are tightening their pocket books . Yet CIOs are speeding up on digital transformations and plan to invest even more in it in 2023 . However , they need to stay laser-focused on improving time to value , and likely don ’ t have the same budget for testing emerging technologies as they did in 2022 .
That means , when they ’ re looking at what to invest in , CIOs need to stay hyper focused on bringing in technology that moves the needle and sets the business up for success amid uncertainty . In particular , I anticipate we ’ ll see CIOs turn to low-code integration technology to offset skill shortages , pull in more benefits and minimize disruptions . Here ’ s what I believe that will look like .
CIOs will rely on application integration powered by low code to offset skill shortages
To combat IT skill shortages while addressing mounting pressures to keep costs in line , some businesses will take on low-cost applications that serve niche needs , creating numerous data silos that lead to quality and governance issues . To address this , we will see more CIOs partner with their C-Suite peers and adopt low-code iPaaS / automation tools that provide governance and security , while still fulfilling businesses ’ needs .
