Business Systems Integration, EDI, On-Premises & Cloud Services
Systems integration, also known as EDI (Electronic Data Interchange), allows communication between all the information systems in your organisation. Modern businesses have many sources of information and it can be challenging to keep all these sources synchronised. Lack of integration often results in manual entry of information into other systems that is both labour-intensive and error prone.
Systems integration can include web applications, accounting systems, ERP Systems, CRM Systems, on-premises software, databases, file systems, Ecommerce systems, payment gateways & marketing applications. Other sources of information include the Internet, web pages, twitter feeds and GPS-based location information. The process of integrating complex information systems includes the following steps:
- Propose an integration strategy & road map to illustrate the journey from the current to new application architecture
- Create SOA (Service-Oriented Architecture) restructuring the systems to facilitate data communication.
- Develop API’s (Application Programming Interfaces) to perform the data transmission between applications.
- QA (Quality Assurance), testing & documentation of the new integrations suites.
