Developing strategic roadmaps to deal with the mission-critical concern of system and application integration: Fiorano Software Pte. Ltd.

thesiliconreview-atul-saini-ceo-founder-fiorano-software-pte-ltd-2017With the extensive growth of the Internet, applications and data sources, the task of building connectivity across the enterprise has become complicated. Significant technology enhancements have brought about systems that are distributed, which allow applications to run on multiple machines at different locations.
