 Cloud – Cloud integration

The solution for web integration

With Cloud use growing, organizations are asking how they can get more productivity, efficiency and automation from their Cloud-based operations. As always: integrate applications to share common data and enable seamless business processes.

Being a native Cloud platform, Flowgear leverages the same technologies as the SaaS applications it services to bring maximum efficiency to Cloud-to-Cloud integration.

Full support for current standards, such as web API’s. Rich integration templates slingshot first time implementations. A web-based designer delivers new requirements at drag-and-drop speeds. Flowgear offers these features and more for total Cloud integration control.

 On-premise integration

Connect on-premise applications without an ESB

Core enterprise systems are typically located on-premise. Traditionally, managing integrations between them meant investing in an enterprise service bus (ESB) or custom-built solution. Both are costly and time-consuming projects.

With Flowgear iPaaS, an enterprise can enjoy the same integration capabilities offered by ESB’s without additional infrastructure or complex on-premises software deployment. Enterprises gain the benefits of data or process integration much sooner and can respond easily to changing integration requirements.

Cloud to On-premise integration

Easily connect on-premises systems to cloud services

Today’s organizations regularly use Cloud-based services as well as traditional on-premises solutions. But, because of differences in technology, the two types of applications cannot readily communicate with each other. So the opportunity to improve operational efficiency through their seamless interaction and data sharing is lost.

Flowgear DropPoint technology solves the problem by providing a secure translation bridge between Cloud and ground-based applications. Enterprises not only gain the integration they desire; they also extend the value of their existing software investment by turning their systems into Cloud-connected platforms.

Traceable integration automation

Centralize visibility of your integrations

Smart IT staff get more done by automating repetitive tasks. Over time they build up collections of programs and macros (scripts) that carry out a variety of background system maintenance and data processing activities, all without human intervention. Often, scripts become important to a company’s operations.

The downside is that the location of a script is decided by its creator, so it could be anywhere in an organization’s IT systems. As the number of scripts grows, managing them and tracing faults becomes extremely difficult.

Flowgear eliminates script sprawl and provides the centralized visibility needed to catalog scripts, monitor their execution, and assess their results. Regardless of the type of script, simple workflows can be set up to decide when they run, evaluate their success, and report failures to their stakeholders.

Mobile application integration

Easily connect back-end services to mobile apps

Mobile developers use a vast array of third-party cloud services to bring rich pre-built functionality to their apps, such as push notifications, geo-location and analytics. Usually, programmers call these services directly from their code, but when new functionality is needed that code has to be rewritten before it can be made available.

Flowgear frees corporate and consulting mobile developers from hard-coded dependencies. Its web-based visual designer allows them to easily connect to and bundle required services into workflows specially configured to one or more applications. Or they can integrate enterprise API’s with public Cloud services to produce seamless composite user experiences.
