Save Time Ryvit has a team of integration developers who are able to create in 3 months what it would take the average in-house development team 12 months. Why is that? Because integrations are what we do. Integrations are our focus and our ambition is to deliver powerful integrations to our customers in a timely manner. We want our clients to be able to focus on their business while we handle the integration building and updating. We are able to meet deadlines for our integrations that will allow you to bring your app to the market sooner.
Many companies get in a groove, get comfortable and go with it. Your employees know what to do to get the job done and everyone knows what to expect. We have all been there, we get comfortable and fall into a routine. However, there may be room for improvement. Are there inefficiencies you are letting slip? Is your company staying adaptable? Are your numbers being tracked, and if they are, what are they telling you? These are all factors you should consider regularly to keep your company performing at the height of its ability. Make sure your company is as effective as it can be by auditing your effectiveness.
Ryvit was founded on one fundamental observation: customers are demanding an integrated application experience for workflows and analysis. Coupled with this imperative, software companies are often failing to deliver because they lack development resources that can rapidly bring integration solutions to market. Recognizing this gap led to the Ryvit vision to create an ineternet platform as a service, plus offer incredible predictive analytics and bring development expertise to do all the heavy lifting for you.
For any company, and especially startups, spending has to be done wisely. All budgets are important, but your hiring dollar might be the most important. A new hire has the potential to add more value to your company than any other expenditure. On the same coin, you are taking a risk when you invest a tremendous amount of money, time, and resources on an individual who may or may not live up to your expectations. At Ryvit, we are part of a 2-time 5000 fastest growing company and want to share some of our key HR wisdom with you. Start with tangible goals and visible values. Aligning your values, culture, and performance should be the focus when hiring for any position.
When you look into building integrations, there is much to consider. One of the first decisions a company needs to make, once they have a picture of what the integration will be capable of, is to develop in-house or not to take the project outside of the company. The next order of business: the cost. Your first instinct might be that developing in-house will be the most cost effective way to go about it. Taking a holistic look at what an in-house integration will take, could change your mind. Let’s look in a little more detail at what it will take. When looking strictly at the integration there are a few things to consider: the integration’s deadline, the number of integrations and their complexity, updates and new releases the integrations will need.
Finding your perfect match means more than just a feeling when we talk about the iPaaS economy. Ultimately your perfect match needs to help you accomplish one task- outsell your competitors. Customers demand all of the workflows be accessible from one interface, they want to use one dashboard, and they want to access it from anywhere. Here’s how to outsell your competition: Focus on the Technology itself Ask your software provider what you are really getting. The technology needs to be:
The debate between cloud backup and on-site hard drive backup has been ongoing. There are pros and cons to consider for each including speed and reliability. Each of the solutions has its own vulnerabilities and risks associated with putting your company data on them. However, if we set all of those aside and only look at the bang for your buck, which one would win? For the hard drive option, when it comes right down to it, the larger storage space you want on your hard drive, the more you will pay.
When working for most organizations, projects can take up a big portion of what you do. Collaboration is essential whether it’s with an established team or across departments. Your team needs to have a certain level of competency and ability. There are tons of tools out there to help you make your team organized and more efficient. These tools range in price and features so you can choose the tool that will be the best fit, but don't forget some of these basics for successful projects:
Being the leader of a project can take a lot of flexibility. Growing a team’s maturity can take patience and persistence. Urging a team to be their best can take a little pressure. A project leader in the iPaaS realm needs to employ all of these tactics to build a successful team. Team Maturity An immature team, or a team with less experience, takes a different style of leadership than a mature team, who will be more knowledgeable. A leader who knows the difference between the two types of teams, and how to be flexible with their leadership style, will be able to make the best of both team maturity levels. When dealing with an immature team you have to give more direction. Step by step instructions might be necessary for these fresh faced employees.

There will be times when you need something for your company that you won’t be able to create on your own while keeping the balance of time, resources, and quality. Sure you could have your marketing intern take a stab at graphic design, but will they create the quality you want, as quickly as you need it? At what cost to you will your intern achieve success? It is important to know your core competencies and focus on delivering those. Outsourcing can help you gain leverage of scale. Don’t try to do everything in-house if this will not give you the results you wish to achieve at the right price and on the right time schedule.
The battle continues when it comes to data storage cloud versus on premise. It can be as difficult as comparing apples and oranges at times because of the root differences between the two. On-premise storage has been used for much longer than cloud storage, but many think cloud storage is the storage of the future. Each option has their own set of unique advantages and disadvantages. How do you know what is right for you? First of all, you need to know the differences.
How they are AccessedOne of the most obvious differences between cloud storage and on-premise storage is how you can access the data. In traditional on-premise storage, the data is installed on a user’s computer. They are able to access it from their machine from that point forward. With cloud storage, you access the data via the internet. You login to a portal and your data is there. This means you can access your data from multiple devices and there are many easy ways to collaborate and share the data you are working with on the cloud.
Payment Options Another big difference with cloud versus on-premise storage is the way and amount you pay. When you choose on-premise storage you pay upfront for a certain amount of hardware for storage and once you purchase it, it’s yours to use how you will. With cloud options, you oftentimes pay as you go, or pay monthly. If you need more storage, you can usually up the amount no problem and see a small difference in your payments. The benefits of this are there is a lower cost of entry as compared to on-premise storage and the ongoing costs, such as maintenance, are much lower, even though you are paying annually.
Security When looking at cloud versus on-premise, security concerns need to be discussed. On-premise storage can be infiltrated by a virus, but the concerns with data loss with cloud storage are much more prevalent. The best way to alleviate the concerns with cloud storage is to make sure it is encrypted. This will ensure no one without permission will access your data.
Impact on Employees The cloud storage has the ability to alleviate internal IT needs. Your internal or outsourced IT team will then have more time and resources to focus on higher impact projects. Your non-technical end users will benefit from greater flexibility – they will have the ability to access their data from anywhere anytime. Automatic updates are an advantage that on-premise cannot provide that benefit your technical and nontechnical team. The collaboration and cross-departmental communication is made easier when you use cloud storage, as well.
Integration When using a cloud or even hybrid storage solutions, you are opened up to scalability and easy integration. Platforms, such as iPaaS (integration platform as a service) need only APIs to connect you to business critical applications. Your data, in turn, can be put to use with powerful business intelligence capabilities. Ultimately it all comes down to what works best for your particular organization. Make sure to do your research so you can understand all of the ins and outs of each solution. Consider your long term strategy as it pertains to technology, data and operations. The decision you come to might not be the same as the other guy, but your business strategy and plans likely aren’t identical, either.
Working on a construction site can be hazardous. According to OSHA, construction fatalities account for 19.5% of the total fatalities across all industries in the U.S. It has been a long-standing factor of the construction industry for contractors to have to balance trying to meet their safety goals with the knowledge that devastating consequences are possible. Safety policies and procedures exist to keep workers as safe as possible, such as OSHA standards for a workplace to be free of known dangers. Even with these policies and standards, hazards still exist, but that doesn’t mean a worksite has to be unsafe. Technology has stepped up to create safety measures that didn't exist before.
Integrations are taking more than just the software industry by storm. Companies in every industry are demanding data be able to flow across different software and different applications. Integrations can heavily increase efficiency and gain a competitive edge through streamlined operations. Companies need to stay away from deploying integrations that will stand alone in a silo in order to reap as many benefits as possible. This means integrations need to be intelligent. The main integration types today are iPaaS, aPaaS, and SaaS.
iPaaS Businesses can no longer survive with software operating in a silo. They need their business systems to communicate across the enterprise and deliver meaningful insights to a variety of stakeholders. Doing this in a consistent and cost-effective way is the trick. The scope of developing, monitoring and supporting a single integration can be out of reach for most organizations. This is where iPaaS vendors come in. The services they provide are now more valuable than ever. Businesses are able to leverage iPaaS to enable subscribers to implement integration projects involving any combination of cloud and on-premise endpoints- data sources, applications, web services, APIs and processes. Some iPaaS benefits include:
“Software companies don’t typically have the resources or the time to focus on how other business applications use their data or services. They are focused on developing their product. The iPaaS model allows organizations to decouple from the process. A partner builds their API, exposes the objects and functionality they want to share and we do the rest. Ryvit manages the integrations, handles functional changes, monitors systems and hardware – and ensures every partner in the ecosystem can scale to meet demand with 99.99% reliability.” CEO, Ryvit Partner
