During a briefing with representatives of business integration platform vendor Hubspan, we were made aware of the availability of a business cloud integration glossary.  This is one of the most comprehensive glossaries explaining the various terminology used in cloud computing, hosting and software-as-a-service (SaaS) today, and you will not require a subscription to an expensive industry analyst firm to secure it.

The constant use of technical acronyms can at times, drive all of us daffy. We recommend readers utilize this glossary resource in helping to add clarity and consistency of communications among supply chain functional, IT technical, and software vendor communications and project planning.

A shout out to Hubspan for assimilating this resource.
