Most companies very well know the problem of not being able to access data from other systems. Data originating from external as well as internal sources like mobile-apps, IoT-devices, business units or production lines need to be further processed to provide additional values. However, not all the participating systems allow to share its data by default. Expensive modifications of well-established systems and disturbances of overall workflows may be the consequences. In this context our integration management platform serves as interpreter translating the messages sent from one application into the expected format of the target application and vice-versa. Putting it in between the necessity of modifying existing systems and applications widely become obsolete.
Considering scenarios where third-party applications need to be integrated into existing IT-environments the usage of dedicated conversion modules and connectors of our integration management platform provides a big relief. The platform was designed to support the integration processes with minimum efforts by simultaneously maintaining a high level of flexibility.
The answer to whether your systems or the target applications may run in execution environments like the cloud or on-premise is no longer defined by technical restrictions. The middleware component together with our template framework even allows deploying conversion- and service-modules on selected embedded devices.
Once the platform has been set up and the specialized middleware components have been integrated into its target environments the basic flexibility concept allows the dynamic modelling of interfaces. Creating new Interfaces or re-shaping existing ones without interfering the regular operation of participating services is one of the major strength of our solution.
Since the architectural concept of our solution follows a decentralized approach, i.e., meaning the instances of the integration management platform do not need a central authority to be operational, the robustness with respect to outages of individual instances is not exposed. By introducing additional logical and physical redundancy of the conversion services one can also positively affect the reliability of the overall system.
