Why is Integration So Important for Events?
Organisations can make better use of their data by linking their systems through Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), which allow different software applications to pull and share information with each other.
Data Integration can bring real value to your events by helping you manage your data more effectively. It’s key to ensuring people across different departments within your organisation have real-time access to critical and accurate event information at all times. It will also help you meet the new GDPR requirements a lot more effectively.
