Simplify Your Business & Gain Real ROI
In order to address all their data and information requirements, enterprises use a variety of different systems that they need to integrate data between. In addition, suppliers, customers and partners will use additional systems that require data to be exchanged with. For instance:
- They may have remote point-of-sale (POS) systems that upload register data to their ERP via Excel spreadsheets on a nightly basis.
- Their top supplier may use traditional EDI documents to submit order information.
- Their retail partners may require XML feeds every 30 minutes to relay inventory information back and forth between systems.
- They might have an outsourced e-commerce system that uses RESTful services to communicate order information and sync customer data.
But as the company grows, so does its integration needs. Suddenly, they’re creating more custom integrations to handle the additional load and to satisfy all their various partner and customer requirements. It’s difficult to manage and scale, and it makes little economic sense to keep up this type of “spaghetti integration.”
Savvy enterprises, to better compete in today’s hyper-digital business landscape, are pulling back the covers to get a deeper understanding of their important business processes and how to improve them and better serve customers. Here’s how modern organizations are streamlining their critical data processes, tearing down digital silos, and optimizing business outcomes.
Benefits of Integrated Business Processes
Business process integration tools that convert and transform data between systems can significantly help organizations and enable tangible business ROI. When a company can streamline its mission-critical data processes, operating costs go down, margins increase, and business flows improve.
That’s exactly what a leading business process automation technology like LANSA Composer can do for the modern enterprise. It can be used to manage the data transformation needs between different systems (converting data from one format to another) and manage the entire end-to-end process.
LANSA Composer can be used to:
- Set up all the communications you may want to use with a trading partner, whether it’s FTP, HTTP, SMTP or POP3 for sending and receiving email, message brokers, or connections to remote database servers
- Create all your data transformations using a graphical drag-and-drop designer that’s completely point-and-click or comes preloaded numerous ready-to-use EDIFACT and X12 maps for traditional EDI.
- Orchestrate your new processes to streamline and automate your existing ones with a process sequencer.
- Provide users with visibility into their processes from a central operations console, where they will have the ability to drill down into each step of any transaction.
- Stand up as a code-free solution, where even business analysts or power users can orchestrate their own business processes without having to be a developer.
The world’s leading enterprises trust LANSA Composer to do all those things and more. LANSA Composer is no-code business process integration suite that is designed to cover the many integration and process improvement requirements that the modern business has today. Your business analysts – rather than costly developers – are able streamline how data is exchanged, processed, and monitored between internal systems, external trading partners, and the cloud. The result is a simpler way to get information into and out of your business systems with minimal human intervention.
One of the differentiating pieces of LANSA Composer, however, is its architecture, which was designed to flexibly allow information updates independent of the business process itself. The LANSA Composer architecture enables you to update, for example, the IP address or the user name and password of a trading partner’s FTP server without having to update the process orchestration. Or, if a customer wants to start sending an XML payload instead of an Excel spreadsheet, you can accommodate that change without making any modifications to the orchestration piece.
This layer of abstraction greatly reduces maintenance of your existing orchestrations and speeds up the creation of new business processes as well. It’s also critical for delivering substantial savings and ROI for your organization.
