As a Systems Integrator, building complex custom-integrations is expensive. How can I cut costs?


When you use a domain-specific integration Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS) like Utilihive you can radically reduce your costs and improve the efficiency of your business.

As a System Integrator, automating processes and developing your own integrations take a large investment of time and money. With Utilihive, this work has already been done for you.

Traditionally, when System Integrators work with utilities, they use an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), cloud service provider or point-to-point integrations where custom development is needed to support integrations to systems such as Headend Systems, Meter Data Management, Advanced Distribution Management Systems, or SCADA.

These complex integrations take hours of development time, tying up your skilled employees when they could be working on other projects.

But even once they’re built, the costs don’t end. Custom-developed systems are expensive to maintain. Your senior developers must be brought in again when there are software changes and systems upgrades. More time invested. More costs.

When you use Utilihive to build, manage, monitor AND maintain your integrations you can work more efficiently and reduce your expenditure.

Here’s how:

  • Utilihive is offered as-a-Service. We’re constantly upgrading and updating our iPaaS to meet the needs of an industry experiencing rapid change.
  • Avoid unexpected expense when your clients’ systems are updated. Upgrades are included in the monthly subscription, so you’ll know exactly how much you’ll pay in advance. No surprise costs when projects hit problems and take longer than planned.
  • Your most skilled employees can be redeployed on client-specific development and other projects. Low code connectors need minimal coding and can be easily configured without the need for coding expertise.
  • You can meet the needs of your clients more efficiently. Utilihive gives you the flexibility and elastic scalability to scale up and down. Integrations are orchestrated in a single and modern platform, not point-to-point. If you need to make changes, they won’t impact other integrations. Projects are completed faster and at lower cost.

With Utilihive as your integration platform you can avoid the project overruns and spiraling costs that often come with custom integrations. You’ll streamline your projects, save yourself time and resources and boost efficiency.
