Systems Integration

Business-Grade App Development

Experience in Data Management

 Is defined as the process of bringing together the component subsystems into one system (an aggregation of subsystems cooperating so that the system is able to deliver the overarching functionality) and ensuring that the subsystems function together as part of one ecosystem , and in information technology, as the process of linking together different computing systems and software applications physically or functionally, to act as a coordinated whole.

The system integrator integrates discrete systems utilizing a variety of techniques such as computer networking, enterprise application integration, business process management or manual programming.

System integration involves integrating existing, often disparate systems in such a way “that focuses on increasing value to the customer” (e.g., improved product quality and performance) while at the same time providing value to the company (e.g., reducing operational costs and improving response time).  In the modern world connected by Internet, the role of system integration engineers is important: more and more systems are designed to connect, both within the system under construction and to systems that are already deployed.

Implementing a modernized, single-platform B2B infrastructure provides multiple benefits and moves businesses into a future-ready state. Ultimately, what systems integration software / systems integration solutions look to solve is each and every unique IT problem with customized and seamless ways to connect modern environments with legacy infrastructure. The end-game with system integration is an organization improving working relationships with customers and partners while increasing work-flow efficiency and lowering operational costs for the business. A system integrator can do this through business process management, computer networking, enterprise App integration, and/or manual programming.

In short, system integration is like putting a puzzle together. There are scattered pieces of an organization’s information subsystems that need to fit together into one well-coordinated, cohesive architecture or integrated application mesh. It’s a complex building process that connects an organization’s functions from varying systems, streamlining disparate systems, including existing hardware, software (customized or out-of-box), and communications.

Finding out and narrowing  down suitable integrated solutions isn’t exactly simple, it requires expertise and understanding where the client or business is going in 5 or 10 years from now. But selecting the right parts to deploy and the precise location to deploy them depends on how well a company as well as its partners and vendors understand the necessary processes, security needs, resources, and business objectives. In turn, proper alignment with the business delivers better value from integrating scattered systems, applications, services, and software.

However, solutions are more than just vertical and horizontal integration. Here are four key methods of system integration:

  • 1. Vertical integration
  • 2. Horizontal integration
  • 3. Star integration
  • 4. Common data format
