IDG News Service (Boston Bureau) — A former Microsoft architect has founded a startup called Azuqua aimed at tackling the problem of joining together and automating business processes from multiple SaaS (software-as-a-service) applications.
The proliferation of SaaS and the "API [application programming interface] economy," provides a vast opportunity for a service that can easily pull together processes from multiple applications to serve various scenarios, CEO Nikhil Hasija said in an interview prior to Tuesday's launch of the company's platform.
There's also a need for a tool that can make doing this extremely easy for an average user, he said. While there are a wide range of cloud integration options, such as Dell Boomi and Informatica Cloud, "it requires a computer science degree to do something with them," Hasija claimed. "We're solving this for the business user and making IT look good for being able to deliver this."
