MDM: Keep your customer data in sync
- CRM systems manage customer details
- ERP stores customer data for orders and billing
- Integration Cloud keeps changes in either application in sync
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.
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.
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.
Cloud-based integrations are always extremely flexible and scalable, and Integration Cloud pushes this concept even further.
What you will benefit from:
Integration Cloud establishes a secure connection with local applications through various protocols. It works for example with Active Directory or private/public cryptographic keys. This is specifically relevant when working with high business impact (HBI) data, with restricted access.
What are examples of HBI data?
Integration Cloud is hosted in some of the best-equipped data centers in the world, operated by a highly professional and experienced Microsoft team of engineers.Store your data worry-free in these world-class Microsoft data centers, known for their unique and reliable disaster proof concept. This platform is highly available through its fail-over capabilities, geo-clustering features and built-in redundancy.
Settle for nothing less. Integration Cloud has even developed its own disaster procedure.
Integration Cloud offers tracing and detailed exception logging that provides useful information for management and monitoring. This type of traceability allows Integration Cloud to provide customers with a pro-active support service.
By ensuring an out-of-the-box secured hybrid connection to many existing Line of Business (LOB) systems, Integration Cloud can leverage traditional messaging patterns to make your company’s integrations as agile as possible.
Integration Cloud allows you to easily set up connectivity with on-premises Line of Business applications that do not have a public endpoint (like file shares, mainframe, …), via Microsoft Azure Virtual Networking or the Cloud Connector.
Integration Cloud uses various connector types to set up (traditional and SAAS) connectivity. Receivers and transmitters are used to set up connectivity with systems and applications.
