The business benefits of Systems Integration

I frequently speak with clients that leverage disparate systems across their business. They might have CRM and ERP systems that do not talk to each other, inventories for online and physical stores that lack alignment, or branch offices without access to the same information. The list goes on.

I saw disconnects like this with a customer of ours. They reached out to Creative Folks as they lacked alignment across their platforms and struggled with consolidating product information between their stores. Their large stores stocked a broad range of items, whereas their smaller ones only stocked a fraction of items. There was no way of knowing which stores stocked what in their systems. An online store added to the disconnect.

How did we help them consolidate these systems to bring consistency and accuracy to their business? With systems integration.

Systems integration brings together every platform across your company. It can change how you meet new customer demands, make decisions about your business strategy, and present new opportunities for innovation.

Why consider Systems Integration?

There is a trade-off in a world where modern business applications provide more usable, reliable systems than the traditional monolithic applications of ten years ago.

How APIs and Microservices have transformed System Integration

We’ve heard the terms before, and we sometimes give a knowing nod in a meeting to make it seem like we understand what was said. But if you’re a little shaky about what these things are and how they might help your business, then I’ll try to explain it in a simple and applicable way.

Microservices and APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) are both important for developing new applications and improving existing ones. Although there can be some overlap between the two, they are different things and serve distinct purposes. When put together, APIs can help microservices and legacy systems connect and co-exist to improve IT agility.

An API-first strategy is much more about the 10,000-foot view. It’s worth considering for those beginning to incorporate microservices into their business. I take a look at this approach and its business benefits below.

Utilising your software more effectively with Integrations as a Service

I work with companies every day who struggle with siloed software and information. They might have the right software for their needs, but is it talking to their other applications? Too often, the answer is ‘No’. Below are some of the common integrations we deliver and how they help businesses do more, with less.

Breaking Down the Integration Services Process

Ensuring that disparate IT systems work well together can be quite a challenge. When various IT systems work in synchronisation, they can communicate with each other. This then empowers the company to eliminate unproductive silos, improve operations and throughput, boost efficiency, and of course, reduce costs. To achieve all these goals, systems integration and integration services can be a game-changer.

How to choose the right System Integration method for your business

System integration can resolve modern business challenges by placing a variety of information subsystems into a unified application mesh; it can make a supply chain more efficient, operations smoother, and enable faster vendor communication.

Solving modern business challenges with Data Integration

Data integration comes in two different categories, depending on your definition of “data integration”.

The traditional definition of data integration is something along the lines of “... the process of combining data from two or more sources to provide a unified view.” -  with the intent of extracting business intelligence, by viewing consolidated reporting or performing data analysis to draw out insights.

Unlocking Competitive Advantage with System Integration

Integration is the key to unlocking profitability, differentiation, and separation from your competition. In fact, integration in today’s business world is far more important than any solitary application in your entire architecture.
