Beware, this is my brain dump as I attempt to figure out Segment integrations. It might seem disconnected at first but I’ll make every effort to loop things back around. First a few pieces of context, or more simply my goals for this blog entry:
1. My goal here is to implement a server side integration with Segment that allows for data, which flows through their system, to end up in another system.
2. The term, it appears, for the software one would build and deploy to their system for them to feed data into another system is called an integration. There is a long list of the integrations that they have available today. It’s so long, that Segment actually has a search feature and all of the integrations divided into sub groups of integrations by advertising, analytics, marketing, sales, support, developer, and user testing.
