Capabilities

Integration Cloud offers a wide set of application and protocol connectivity:

  • When we expose an endpoint over a web service, so that other applications can send to this endpoint, we leverage Windows Identity Foundation to secure these connections.
  • When integrating to local systems (databases, file system, web services…) that are not connected over a virtual network with our cloud runtime, we use the Cloud Connector, lightweight local installation that can connect to local systems, using a set of (pluggable) adapters.
  • It is possible to connect Integration Cloud in a virtual network with other servers (either locally or in the cloud). This can be achieved through Microsoft Azure Virtual Networking.
  • Microsoft Azure SQL Database provides a relational database service for Microsoft Azure and other Internet-based applications. The SQL Database firewall prevents all access to your SQL Database server until you specify which computers have permission.

A cloud-based integration solution that offers hybrid connectivity capabilities, such as Integration Cloud, allows you to mix cloud-based integration with connecting on premises applications and software services in a secured and monitored way. It sets up a hybrid integration platform that can easily grow with your business needs and new demands.

The real value of IoT and cloud solutions is tangible after data comes together in the cloud. With Integration Cloud, at the heart of your IoT solution, connectivity with external data sources is easily set up. Integrate your machine or device telemetry data with other types of data (weather information, market prices, calendar information, etc) like never before. 

Codit helps you to get as much as possible insights and visualization to build new innovative business models. With Integration Cloud, you gain detailed insights in the status of connections, the related data and you can take corrective actions in case of errors.

 

In our track & trace module, the entire data flow is visualized and can be used to drill down through the details of the various data flows. This allows users to troubleshoot and analyze the various data integrations.

As the current IoT landscape contains a lot of different data and connectivity protocols, we have created an extremely extensible Integration Cloud platform. Customers get the opportunity to rely on support for new or industry-specific protocols or they can even build it themselves.

Some clients we helped

We have an on-premises integration solution running on Microsoft BizTalk and this in-house solution had to integrate with Integration Cloud. The implementation of its e-Invoicing functionality all had to be right from the very first moment on; and so it was.
