I've had the same team for ten years now and we continue to add on to our technology footprint and we haven't had to grow the team to support that.

Founded in 1985, Meritage Homes builds and sells energy efficient single-family homes for first-time, move-up, luxury and active adult buyers across the western, southern and southeastern regions of the United States. The seventh-largest public homebuilder in the United States, Meritage Homes employs 1,400 employees and has designed and built more than 90,000 homes. The business has operations in 9 states and is headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona.

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.

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.

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.
