Cloud-based EAI

Minimize your EAI workload: industrialize integration in the cloud

Making information available to your business in the most efficient way, that’s the primary goal of Enterprise Application Integration (EAI). Why adopt EAI? Connected enterprises, with integrated systems to easily communicate data, are in a far better position to compete against less collaborative, less agile competitors.

Hybrid connectivity, please.

Many companies have a distributed environment with various applications running in different data centers, sometimes even across continents. Companies moving towards SaaS applications create hybrid connections. Centralizing all connections in a secure and always available cloud platform, helps you to seamlessly set up the integration processes. Integration Cloud acts as your dedicated Enterprise Service Bus, and helps you integrate your SaaS and on-premises applications most efficiently and future-proof.

What happens when stock is low? 

Stock Management Integration Cloud

  • The operator issues an item request in the inventory application, which sends the request to Integration Cloud
    • for message conversion to CSV
    • for rooting to FTP (input for ERP)
  • Operator imports CSV in ERP, creates the purchase and produces it in CSV format
  • Integration Cloud picks up the CSV file, transforms it to a signed PDF and e-mails it to the fulfilment application that orders the items

In this example, each application communicates with Integration Cloud using a different protocol. Notice that no single application is aware of the complete business process. The business process, along with the intelligence required to coordinate all of the parts, is implemented in Integration Cloud.
