What Is System Integration?

When we think about the technology freely available today it’s hard to imagine anything but complete connectivity between all computers. The truth is it takes a lot of hard and some pretty amazing technology to get every computer in the world to work together and allow some of the advanced functionality most people enjoy. In order for computers to work together and supply the data most everyone depends on those computers need to be connected by hardware and software. Systems Integration is a process in which computers are connected in order to improve functionality, increase efficiency, and allow users to work together easily.

A systems integration service provider can work on a large scale for server farms or data centers or on a small scale for businesses or institution. Servers provide data for many users at once. Most users aren’t doing the same thing at the same time so each instance has to work independently. This means that not only do the servers need to function properly in many different ways, they have to have enough power to supply potentially hundreds of thousands of users at once. Businesses that need to lower the cost of operation can do so with a fully integrated computer system that will track inventory, sales, and even help regulate temperature in the store. Neither of these examples are possible without properly integrating the software and hardware users depend on.
