Hand coding integration may seem like an expedient solution to an urgent business need but it is not. As integration requirements inevitably grow, problems with custom code mount. There is an inability to reuse custom code in many cases and it can be difficult to maintain. Custom solutions are neither scalable nor extensible. The programmer who wrote the code may not be available to update it and so the quick fix becomes complex and costly.
Read this paper to learn about a hybrid integration solution to achieve instant, low-cost integration that can be done in hours, with zero coding.
