Integration strategy


Our goal is to educate our clients on the most beneficial integration options available for their environment and business goals while remaining agnostic to the technology stack. We guide clients to a solution that solves their current pain points, is fast to implement, fits within their support model, and is scalable. We look for the best solution that fits the budget and performance expectations.

Integration solutions are not one-size-fits-all. Often organizations use multiple solutions as their landscape includes a variety of technical maturity and integration capacities. Our integration practice focuses on delivering an integration solution for legacy through cutting edge technology. While there are many integration options, we choose to focus on four standard methods that are time tested and reliable.

Baufest offers several Integration Solutions that help our clients work more effectively and securely within their ecosystem:

01. Cloud Middleware - iPaaS

Cloud middleware, commonly known as iPaaS, is a modern solution to integration challenges for environments with significant growth or change within a hybrid IT landscape. iPaaS solutions allow an organization to integrate and automate applications, data sources and processes by using pre-built connectors and low-no code tools. This is a key differentiator in delivering this tool to production quickly, maintaining budget control, supportability, and evolution with business growth.


02. EDI/B2B Management

EDI/B2B Management solutions continue to evolve as organizations recognize the cost savings of automating core business processes. The modern EDI/B2B Management tools support the most commonly used standards (X12, EDIFACT, HC7, etc) and connectivity methods (AS2, SFTP, HTTP, etc), allowing legacy supply chain and ERP systems to integrate systematically, reducing manual processing errors and making business cycles faster.


03. API-Driven Integration

APIs allow enterprises to leverage existing internal or external functionalities authorizing multipoint real-time connections outside of the organization. As application development continues to grow, so does the catalog of available APIs published for general consumption. With this increased API library, API Management tools are crucial to the management, monitoring, monetization, security, and development of an enterprise's APIs in a single environment.


04. Event-Driven Integration

Applications continue to revolve around the user's demand for immediate consumption of data. As applications become more sophisticated, user expectations demand faster and accurate application response. Event-Driven integrations serve environments where data must be instantaneously in sync upon any event that updates those data points, behaving as event producers and event consumers. Data streams are used for these events, ensuring data flows correctly to the consumers.
