Enterprise System Integration

3 Reasons to Choose a Loosely Coupled Enterprise System for Integration

With any integration, one of the most frustrating things is often the cost and burden of upkeep. In fact, many enterprise system integration solutions force you to continuously rebuild or reconfigure with even minor upgrades of edge systems. With a loosely coupled solution, you can significantly reduce burdens and, in most cases, eliminate them altogether. Here are three reasons why our loosely coupled solution, GeoWorx Sync, could be the right solution for your enterprise.

1. A loosely coupled enterprise system integration connects through vendor APIs

Our loosely coupled enterprise system integration method of establishing connections for synchronization allows you to be in control of your own data. When you bypass the vendor-supported APIs and edit tables directly, end-users will not be leveraging the built-in data validation layer provided by the vendors APIs, which increases the chance for data corruption and software failure. While GeoWorx Sync may connect directly to your databases for extracting information, all data manipulation runs through vendor supported APIs. This method ensures that none of the operations performed by GeoWorx Sync circumvent important business logic.

2. Allows data to remain in the native database as intended

Another key point is that a loosely coupled enterprise system integration approach ensures that there is no impact on users’ workflows by its installation. As a result, users may continue to use their system (GIS, CIS, EAM, etc.) as usual. Data that needs to be shared is available in an integrated view for the end-users. As a result, these loosely coupled enterprise systems provide an independent enterprise system each with its own unique data model. Because loosely coupling the systems recognizes this fact it allows each system to maintain its autonomy. It also permits native functionality without sacrificing the realized benefits of integrating your systems.

3. Software version flexibility

Finally, the flexibility to upgrade your enterprise to the latest software versions is one of the most significant benefits of a loosely coupled solution. Because GeoWorx Sync is a fully supported, loosely coupled solution, you have great flexibility when it comes to upgrading your edge systems. You may upgrade to the latest version of these systems at will and independently without causing major system disruptions.

More on GeoWorx Sync

GeoWorx Sync is a powerful tool for synchronizing the data multiple Enterprise Systems share. Organizations use a variety of software. This data could include customer information and billing, work and asset management, network modeling, and geographic information systems (GIS) to manage daily operations. Each system has an independent database used to manage data. Because in many cases you need to replicate customer data such as assets, work, and resources across enterprise systems, this data quickly becomes unreliable due to an undefined system of record. GeoWorx Sync solves this issue by synchronizing common data stored and managed by an independent loosely coupled enterprise system integration.
