We provide all kinds of Integration to Infrastructure (IaaS), Platform (PaaS), or Software (SaaS) Cloud Service. We have expertise in iPaaS (Integration Platform as a Service). We provide seamless integration of Mobile Apps with cloud-based applications ensuring compliance with all best practices, standards, and guidelines.
We have many years of experience in working with APIs of popular data providers like IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, Odoo, and the full range of Enterprise Applications. These APIs are frequently updated, and we have to design and build unique flexible systems to quickly change the integration rules without an impact on the downstream systems.
Technology and Architecture
Interface Specifications describe the interaction between two things. Typically this will be interactions between two automated systems, but an interface specification may also describe non-automated interactions. An interface consists of below components:
- the functions it exposes;
- the information/data required; and
- non-functional aspects (e.g., non-repudiation, volume, security, guaranteed delivery)
An API is a technology-specific implementation of an Interface Specification. The API may implement the entire Interface Specification or a subset of it.
We have experience in the integration of multiple applications and data of various technologies and product vendors such as Soap / XML, REST / JSON / XML, RDBMS, NoSQL, HTML, PHP, etc.
Interface Categories Supported
- Network and IT Resource Management – Covers all interfaces involved with service and resource management of the Network and IT infrastructure.
- Enterprise Integration – Covers all interfaces within the enterprise architecture of a provider.
- Business to Business – Covers all interface used to connect the enterprise architecture within a provider to the provider's business partners, such as wholesale, cloud, software-enabled services, outsourcing, etc.
- Smart Device Management – Covers those devices at the extremity of the network, such as mobile devices, smart grid, set-top boxes, etc.
- Common capability covers items that can we used across all interface categories, such as metrics, security, and policies
The integration methodology structured in four phases:
Problem definition: This phase identifies the applications involved and describes the integration goal, which may be the management of a data entity or the support of a business process.
Application analysis: The analysis of each production application begins with interviews with the people in charge of the business area and the technical staff.
Specification: The specification model allows the description of integration solutions with enough detail to support its development, test, and maintenance. The proposal has two modeling perspectives based on entity-relationship diagrams and data-flow diagrams, extended with specific integration concepts.
Implementation: The implementation phase includes the development, test, and maintenance of the specified solution.
More detail on development methodology
API Governance is broadly categorized as below
- Planning Governance is about making sure that you are building the right things.
- API Selection and prioritization
- Specification planning and communication
- Development Governance is about making sure you’re building them right.
- Tools, Process and right members
- Operational Governance is about ensuring that what you’ve built is behaving right.
- User Acceptance, Adaptation, and Re-usability of APIs
- API maintenance, update and release management.
- Policy Governance defines and manages policies, associates them with various assets, and validates and reports on policy compliance.
- Document / Code retirement, auto expiry,
- Document / Code access control,
- Report generation on policy compliance
