- Reduces number of errors as main database is updated directly, and it does not have to be transferred via points of integration
- Requires less maintenance
- Improves inter-branch, location & departmental communication
- Reduces IT, administrative and service delivery costs
- Improves working procedures and data accessibility
- Makes it easier to redefine job specifications as there is consistent user interface for learning new processes
- Lowers costs because maintenance of two separate systems is not needed
Concerns With the Integration of Multiple Applications
- Ongoing upkeep of the points of integration and data fields as the products change over time
- New releases and updates that show up intermittently may negatively affect the ability to plan strategically
- Cumulative costs of user training and retraining on multiple interfaces
- Incompatibilities in workflow and internal communications techniques across multiple products
- No 360 degree real-time view of data
- Inconsistent data
- Bug fixes, unplanned upgrades, unsuspected incompatibilities can lead to production delays
- Potential delayed or protracted time to Return on Investment (ROI)
- Unpredictable Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) over time
