What is an Embedded iPaaS?

Embedded iPaaS

Your product connecting to multiple categories and then a Unified API.

With an Embedded iPaaS solution, your product needs to connect to the iPaaS and manually build each workflow, which lacks scalability and ease-of-use.

Embedded Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS), are seamlessly incorporated into your product. Originally developed as productivity enhancement tools for individual users to simplify and automate their tasks across multiple integrations, these platforms were subsequently adapted for direct product incorporation. The connection to such platforms involves two steps: first, the initial connection to the platform, and second, the manual construction of each integration in a low-code setting, often referred to as a 'workflow' or 'connector'. The advantages of this system include:

  • Comprehensive support for tailor-made, broad-spectrum integrations.
  • Some platforms offer pre-configured workflows for a selection of standard use cases.
  • Strong security measures and standards, ensuring data encryption both at rest and during transmission.

However, considering that iPaaS software predominantly concentrates on productivity automation scenarios (operating on low-code workflows), it has some limitations in the provider's integrated solutions:

  • Lack of scalability: each integration must be manually crafted using the low-code workflow software.
  • Hard to use: The low-code workflow platforms generally necessitate technical engineers on your team to undergo training for usage. Every integration brings its own specific challenges that need addressing, such as handling custom fields, mandated data types, and field mapping.


While Embedded iPaaS solutions support wide-ranging integrations, these must be manually built and configured on a case-by-case basis.
