Why ZigiOps Integration Platform?

Choosing the best no-code integration platform

Data integration tools have been around for quite a while, yet people still find it hard to differentiate between all options on the market. Starting from code-based integrations, going through low-code all the way to no-code ones, most vendors still cannot separate their tool from others in a clear manner. The most significant difference between integration platforms usually comes down to pricing models.

What is the time-to-launch the integration?

If you are in a hurry, then choosing a no-code integration platform like ZigiOps would be the best option.

Does the platform cover your use case?

Many vendors claim to cover all integration use cases, but they fail to deliver those capabilities and features out-of-the-box, which calls for additional scripting.

Does your use case require additional development?

Going back to the previous point, if the integration platform doesn’t cover your entire use case, additional professional services will be applied and thus your time-to-launch will significantly increase.

Is the platform a plugin?

If this is the case, you will need to modify the systems you are connecting additionally to make them compliant with the plugin.

Having in mind all these factors, you need to be very careful about who you trust with your integrations. We have a dedicated article which looks at all the risks you need to understand, prior choosing your integration platform.

In the following paragraphs we will unveil all key features of ZigiOps and help you understand in which cases you should turn to us.

1. Why ZigiOps?

Let’s start by giving you a brief overview on our integration tool. ZigiOps is a flexible, no-code integration platform which connects systems in minutes. Born from the need to help you automate processes and enhance cross-team collaboration, ZigiOps seamlessly runs, while transferring data between your apps in real-time.

But why should you choose ZigiOps over all other integration tools on the market? Let’s dive a bit deeper to see what the main features and capabilities of the platform are.

2. Advanced No-Code Integration Platform

When people hear no-code integrations, the first thing in their mind is simple drag and drop operations, which can be performed by any user. One of the most popular tools of this rank is Zapier, which successfully connects a lot of systems, yet it does not cover enterprise software and more complicated use cases. Therefore, most people are under the impression that no-code integration platforms can perform simple integrations only.

No-code and advanced can go together with ZigiOps. Our platform was specifically created to enable non-technical users to create powerful integrations from the UI entirely. Our tool covers even the most complex use cases, without the need for any additional scripts. Most other tools on the market are low-code and do not offer advanced data mappings out-of-the-box.

3. Reading the schema dynamically

When you start building your integration and get to mapping all the required data and fields, the best option is to have everything loaded automatically. Unfortunately, most integration platforms do not support this feature. ZigiOps reads the schema of each system you are trying to integrate dynamically so you can easily see which types of data and fields you can sync between your systems. As mentioned in the previous paragraph all this is done from the UI and no API knowledge is required.

This feature further enables you to modify the integration at any given time by adding new fields to synchronize. What is more if for example you are transferring an incident from ServiceNow to Jira as a task, if the user does not exist in Jira, ZigiOps will automatically create one.

4. Unlimited Customizations and Scalability

Most integration platforms do not offer a lot of customization options, since this may require additional development and engagement from the vendor side. This is especially true for plugins as in their case you would need to do all customizations from the source and target systems, and this can create additional fuss and risks. Utilizing a standalone integration software like ZigiOps will enable you to control and customize all your integrations from a single source, without the need for any additional scripting. This in turn also opens the floor for unlimited scalability as you can add as many integrations as you need from one place, without having to dig-in your ServiceNow or Jira instance for example.

Integration use cases vary and inevitably change over time. Having this mind, it is always better to count on standalone products, which serve as a single source of truth for all integrations across the company.

6. Security and Customer Support

When talking about integrations and transfer of data, security is among the first questions our customers ask. Many vendors don’t have a clear response on how they manage to secure the data, which is passing through their connector. With ZigiOps things stand clear. Our integration tool does not have a database and cannot store any of the information, which passes through it.

Great and timely customer support also come as a priority for most customers. Integration vendors usually give basic support to users, which breaks down into 1 hour of onboarding to the platform and knowledge basis if anyone has questions afterwards. Anything besides that comes at an additional cost.

The ZigiOps support team covers the entire cycle of support services, starting from onboarding, going through customizations of integrations all the way to providing additional tips and tricks on how to enhance the logic of an integration. All this is included in our annual subscription and applicable to all customers.
