The history of line of business (LOB) applications tells a story of siloed systems and one-off app development. What in retrospect seems as a shortsighted and uncohesive strategy was at the time the solution to our business problems that the best technology and talent of the time could solve. While the digital transformation promises a future of a confluent system strategy with the likes of Dynamics 365, the reality is that we still need to solve current problems and tackle new challenges with the current systems we have invested in. Even with layered new application development on top of current systems the need to allow our disparate systems to talk remains. Confluent specializes in a range of systems integrations both inside and outside of the Microsoft ecosystem.
