Enterprise Integration

The integration challenge

It starts by connecting two systems. What’s the harm? Before you know it, your integration architecture is a brittle mess of point-to-point connections that bog down your organization and create dependencies on vendor technology.

Integration as an afterthought

Your integration strategy should be focused on more than just implementing your critical systems. Start thinking about how those systems will connect in the future.

Point-to-point architecture

Two systems connected to each other is simple. That changes when there are 100 systems connected like this. Teams must tip-toe around brittle point-to-point architecture.

Platform creep

Vendor “integration platforms” are just proprietary interfaces for point-to-point integration. They produce a false sense of connectivity. In reality, they create vendor lock-in.

Resource constraints

Demand for IT project throughput steadily increases while resource budgets stay flat or diminish. IT teams find themselves playing a cruel and constant game of catch up.

Enterprise IntegrationEnterprise Integration use cases

Modern integration is at the heart of our solutions. Below, are examples of enterprise integrations our team delivered leveraging reusable APIs that facilitate legacy modernization, faster development time, and increased throughput.

Workday with PeopleSoft

Implemented the MuleSoft Anypoint platform and followed the API-led approach to enable Workday as the management front-end using an existing PeopleSoft backend system of record. This resulted in the ability to assign students, faculty, and teachers to courseware, rooms, and other facilities for a major online education provider.

JD Edwards and JDA Software

Partnered with a major aircraft parts and supplies company to architect an integration platform between three manufacturing ERP systems. The design successfully integrated two legacy ERP systems, JDE and a home-grown system, with a new JDA Software ERP system.

Salesforce, Magento, JD Edwards and Darwin LIMS (Thermo Fisher)

Implemented the MuleSoft Anypoint platform and used the API-led approach to deliver two key use cases. The first was to integrate and coordinate incoming orders between Salesforce and Magento. The second was to enable health supplement inventory management in JD Edwards to reflect real-time laboratory quality test results from Darwin LIMS (Thermo Fisher).
