Methodologies and Architectures We Use 

The implementation of service-oriented architecture (SOA) lowers future integration costs and time by 30%.

  • SOA-based (service-oriented architecture) integration.

    We can transform your system into a set of loosely coupled, easily scalable and re-usable components, such as web services or microservices that communicate:

    • On a point-to-point basis that implies direct connection via API calls.
    • Through middleware components (an enterprise service bus, message broker) that introduce an additional abstraction layer to take the full responsibility for message/request transmitting, transformation, routing.
  • Shared database – where multiple applications to access data from a single data store.
  • RPA (robotic process automation) – where software imitates human interactions with computer systems (typing, clicking and copy-pasting data from one application to another).

Challenges We Solve 

Applications supporting no API

We have a set of established practices to integrate applications without API support, such as the introduction of a file transfer, a shared database or application modernization.

Prolonged response time

We properly plan capacity (load and performance testing, network latency problem assessment) and middleware, design scalable architecture, introduce priority queues, effectively use timeouts and sync calls, logging and caching.

Data quality issues

We take an enterprise-wide view to assess the potential pain points and eliminate them via introduction of data governance rules, error message management, message completeness verification, roll-back of distributed transactions.

Security vulnerabilities

We use sophisticated access control rules, introduce industry-proven protocols for authentication and authorization, “safer” outbound connections, and more.
