If you watch the current trends in technology software or software outsourcing, you may catch a glimpse of the importance of cloud in the upcoming years. Organizations that adopt dynamic, cloud-based operational models are better positioned to compete in today's fast-changing business climate. These businesses not only see the short-term benefits of cloud computing, but they also position themselves to be early adopters of the disruptive developments that will shape the future. Let’s take a closer look at why IBM ACE is the tool you need for a swift integration.

What is IBM ACE?

IBM App Connect Company software integrates IBM Integration Bus and IBM App Connect Professional and cloud-native capabilities to create a platform covering the entire spectrum of integration needs throughout a modern digital enterprise. Using the IBM App Connect Enterprise Toolkit, you may generate integration solutions and deploy them to IBM Cloud Pak for Integration, the specialized runtime of IBM App Connect Enterprise software, and IBM App Connect Enterprise on IBM Cloud1.

The IBM ACE software is significant because it establishes the integration technology as the foundation for:

· Connecting to major SaaS programs for marketing, CRM, finance, HR, analytics, project management, and ERP with many pre-built connections. Every month, more connections are introduced.

· Extended connectivity support with applications such as App Connect Professional and the App Connect connectors on the IBM Cloud, which adds at the time of writing this article, over 100 smart connectors.

· ACE users can take full advantage of App Connect Professional, which supports a wide range of endpoints, from pre-packaged applications to bespoke endpoints, thanks to the Connector Development Kit's ability to construct custom connections.
