Overcome redundant data entry, break down silos of information and improve operational effectiveness with a single source of the truth. Integration is a component of an overall digital transformation program.
The Importance of Integration
Your integration strategy describes how you will accomplish systems integration.
Regardless of your core business management system or Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, your organization will have multiple sources of information. Whether the data comes from multiple internal software systems, supplier catalogues, customer orders, banks, etc.; integration brings together all that data into one functional system and ensures that all components work together in harmony to improve productivity and enable accurate data analysis.
Middleware software is used to read, transform and deliver data flows between systems. Middleware developers partner with software companies to package solutions for faster implementation and quicken return on investment. These tolls are typically priced based upon system and flow count, or on an enterprise agreement
Cloud platforms receive, transform and transmit data feeds between information trading partners as a service. Integration service providers bundle complex systems APIs into configurable data flows to meet business requirements. The service is typically priced on a consumption basis (transactions or data).
Although tools and platforms meet the needs of the vast majority of integrations, there are times a “bespoke” solution is required to meet unique requirements or create competitive advantage. Custom programming can often be incorporated into tools and/or platforms and are typically priced on time and materials or by project.
