Business need
Meritage Homes Corporation needed to integrate multiple on-premises and cloud-based applications, as well as create secure application programming interfaces (APIs) to external sites.

Solution
Working with IBM Business Partner KS2 Technologies, Meritage Homes used IBM® App Connect Professional software (formerly IBM WebSphere® Cast Iron® Cloud integration) to link its on-premises and cloud-based solutions. The business also used IBM DataPower® Gateway devices to provide security functionality for its APIs.

Benefits
Because of its integration work, Meritage Homes consolidated all of its customer points into a single buyer portal. With the IBM solution, the business can create APIs more quickly and easily.
