Enterprise Software Integration

Nearshore Software Development Business Intelligence

The need to efficiently and effectively track prospects, customers, and other critical customer relationship data has catapulted Salesforce.com to rock star status. As usage becomes even more pervasive, so comes the realization that the real value – higher productivity, more responsive service, increased margins – comes when applications and data are more tightly integrated.

The value of Salesforce.com can be extended through integration with other enterprise applications. There are other critical applications that can similarly benefit from integration, including additional SaaS services, on-premise ERP applications, database systems such as patient health care records, and data warehouses being used for strategic and operational analysis.

Gartner Group reports that over one-third of organizations cite integration with existing systems as a major challenge with SaaS deployments. Similar issues also exist with the integration of applications installed behind the firewall. Given enough time and resources, a savvy in-house development team could perform integration work from scratch, but this becomes costly and unruly, presenting major challenges as organizations add and upgrade applications over time. Increasingly, organizations are choosing to streamline integration efforts by using an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) from leading vendors to avoid costly and inefficient point-to-point integration. That being said, not every organization has the resources, expertise or even inclination for such undertakings solely using their in-house development team.

Innovative businesses are solving this issue by choosing an ESB and hiring outside experts to work with and train their in-house staff on enterprise application integration. Software Next Door has extensive experience integrating applications developed in Salesforce Apex, RoR, Java, JavaScript, .NET, and Mobile Apps, using SOA architecture, Rest Services, APIs and MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform™.
