Define your Integration Process
Usually a retailer uses different solutions for the different parts of his process. Let's take the example of a retailer
using one solution to the POS management, another one for the global company strategy monitoring and a third one for the
accounting. The main problematic is then how to send the information from one solution to another one without loosing
any data, keeping the information integrity and maybe arrange it to fit the receiving solution format.
ibs Integration gives an administrator the possibility to manage the data flow from a point to another one in guaranteeing the information integrity.
“manage your integrations and benefit from soft solutions' suite integrity controls”
Thanks to ibs Integration, the administrator will be able to manage three types of interface: Import data, Export data and convert the data the data from a format to another one.
PREPARE YOUR INTEGRATION STRATEGY
- The kind of integration he needs to perform (Import, Export or Transform)
- The Source (type, links, content)
- The Destination (type, links, content)
Then, he will prepare the data mapping and the needed algorithm if needed (ex: transform the date format, add null values in
case the filed is null…)
Finally, the Administrator may define the execution mode and its frequency, whether the process will be executed manually or through an automated Business Process generated by ibs Workflow.
SPECIFY THE INPUTS AND OUTPUTS
- A Document (flat file or xml)
- A Data base (through JDBC)
- A Web service
- A Query which returns results from Soft Solutions' Suite
- An interface table
Then, he will be ready to proceed to the mapping creation.
