POINT TO POINT SOLUTIONS CREATE
NEW PROBLEMS

Integration between systems means that their characteristics shall be bridged:
  • Various technical connections (HTTP, WS, JMS, FTP, etc.)
  • Different data formats (XML, CSV, etc.) and standards (OAGIS, SWIFT, EDIFACT, etc.)
  • Different processes (synchronous / asynchronous, events, triggers, timings, etc.)
  • Various security (IPSec, HTTPS, WS-Security, tokens, etc.)
  • Different error handling (exceptions, rollbacks, transaction management, monitoring, alarms, etc.)
  • Different operating models (in-house, cloud, outsourced, etc.)


A "quick fix" between the two systems may seem like a good solution but can create problems in operation. Problems over time, with instability, scalability, and difficulty with person dependencies can lead to difficulties to change the performed "quick fix" solutions.

Many integrations over time also create a tough situation for IT departments that need to manage a jumble of solutions while an improvement might only be able to be applied to one or two of all integrations.

SOLUTIONS WITH OPEN TECHNOLOGY
AND FLEXIBLE OPERATIONS

A good integration solution meets all basic requirements and also has the characteristicsfor extended benefits:
  • Tool overview of integrations with status and traceability
  • The possibility of an iPaas (integration platform as a service) cloud
  • Combined and bridged operation models (InHouse + iPaaS = hybrid)
  • Reusable components - technology, documentation, methods
  • Solution based on open standards and open source - avoid vendor locking
  • Solution with the ability to support and complete responsibility

STANDARDIZED INTEGRATION
TECHNOLOGIES - REUSABLE
COMPONENTS

When a single integration solution is configured with proven components, it reduces the cost of integration with an average of 30% (Forrester, 2011). When the integration goes into operation, the large savings will be in terms of stability and predictability. This provides the opportunity to focus on value-creating functions and satisfied system users, before "plumbing" between systems.

A "quick fix" between the two systems may seem like a good solution but creates problems in operations with instability, problems to scale and difficult to change because of personal dependencies. Many integrations over time also creates a tough situations for IT departments that need to manage a jumble of solutions where an improvement measure can only be applied to one or two of all integrations.
