Enterprise Business Integration Management


Overview

Adeptia provides a holistic enterprise-class software application designed to incorporate all integration disciplines including ETL, EAI (SOA, ESB) B2B, BPM within a single, collaborative, web-based application. Adeptia’s thoroughly holistic approach satisfies the broadest range of customer integration requirements at economical price points, in which customers pay only for the functionality they need, with the ability to upgrade and scale just by updating license keys. This approach, dramatically eliminates risk, maximizes investment, and prepares customers for the future. This approach is very different than most other enterprise-class integration vendors that offer five or six separate applications (typically through company acquisition) to provide the functionality that Adeptia includes within a single solution. Whereas other enterprise-class vendors add complexity, development time and cost due to disjointed offerings, Adeptia bridges the gap between integration disciplines, dramatically simplifying complex and diverse integration initiatives and reducing cost and development time as follows.

  • Standards Data Dictionaries and pre-built message schemas are included for ANSI X12 EDI, EDIFACT, RosettaNet, HIPAA/HL7, ACORD AL3/XML etc. This simplifies the task of mapping the data from (or into) these messages to internal formats and databases.

  • Process Designer is a web-based design tool to help IT staff collaborate with business analysts (if needed) to easily create and document their data flows, routing rules and business processes in a highly graphical, intuitive way.

  • Enterprise Business Integration Management(EBIM) Software Suite
  • Data Mapper is another web-based, graphical design tool that makes it really easy to specify ETL, mapping, validation and data cleansing rules to process the incoming information. Even very complex rules can be easily specified without writing any code. The Data Mapper supports Any-to-Any mapping, meaning transformation rules can be applied where sources and targets are in any different formats....Read More

  • Rules based Routing allows complex data flows with complex rules to be specified such that routing of data, workflow tasks and information can be affected automatically in the process flows at run-time.

  • Workflow Automation is available in the Adeptia EBIM Suite to allow manual human workflow tasks to be automated. This allows business users to interact with running data flows.

  • Data Schemas and Protocols capability is included to support processing of data in any format whether it is Text or CSV, XML, any Databases (such as Oracle, MySQL, SQL Suite, DB2, Sybase), EDI, HIPAA, ACORD AL3, any Fixed-Length file format, or any other format.

  • Portal functionality including management of users and roles and their relationships, permissions based access and secure login access are some of the capabilities included in this solution.

  • Task Manager allows business users to see which tasks are waiting for them, their priorities and their due dates. Managers can see the Task Managers of their subordinates and they have the ability to reassign tasks if needed.

  • Document Management is included to allow users to upload and download documents securely and then track documents related to the various instances of the data flows.

  • Real-time and Batch Triggers are available built into the solution. These allow flexibility in determining how the implemented integration solutions (data flows) will be executed. These can be simple scheduled triggers to run certain data flows at specific times or they can be real-time triggers that execute data flows based on certain events such as a file being dropped in an FTP folder or an email is received.

  • Custom Service Plug-in capability allows important extensibility in this solution because any existing external programs, in any programming language, can be plugged-in as a service in the EBIM Suite and can be reused at any time in any data flows.

  • Web Services allows any process to access any web service to exchange data.


Benefits

Adeptia provides a complete software solution that helps companies fully automate their partner and customer data flows and integration interfaces. Some of the main benefits of the Adeptia solution are:


  • Centrally Manage all Integrations: Adeptia allows companies to centrally manage, from a single product, all the Connections, Formats, Protocols, Mapping Rules, Triggers, Exception Handling and Data Flows for all your applications, customers and trading partners.

  • Key Features EBIM Software Suite, Business Integration Software
  • Ease of Use: Setting up trading partner profiles, designing and automating data flows and integration touch-points is painless. Everything is graphical and wizard-driven, there is no need for any coding except for rare custom type of situations. Adeptia takes a simple, 3-step process for creating integrations: Design the flow, Configure the services, Deploy the solution.

  • Rapid Implementation: The ease of use and collaborative environment in Adeptia significantly reduces the time it takes to design and automate data flows. Adeptia offers pre-built data flow templates for quick configuration and deployment.

  • Cost effective: Adeptia is attractively priced and available on a subscription pricing model. This significantly reduces the size of the budget needed and also reduces the risk of trying this solution. This is another factor that makes the advantages and benefits of EBIM Suite accessible to everyone.

  • Process-centric, SOA-based approach: Adeptia takes a process-centric and services-based approach to Integration. This is important because most data flows are part of business processes and they require some data or information to be brought to the business user to review and make decisions.

  • Ease of maintenance: Adeptia is based on a Services Oriented Architecture (SOA) approach. This increases reusability and simplifies the process of making enhancements and changes to flows and business rules.

  • Enhance customer service : by improving the speed and throughput of information, orders, invoices, payments and shipments while eliminating errors inherent in keying and re-keying.

  • Increase cash flow: by reducing your invoicing and payment cycles.

  • Improve your company’s competitive advantage: by opening opportunities with customers and suppliers to communicate and service them better.

  • Connect trading partners: with your business processes and systems.

Problems Solved

Adeptia is perfect for enterprises that are facing diverse and complex integration challenges and require a high level of agility to keep pace with the ever-changing business requirements. Some of the common uses of the Adeptia are listed below :


Key features ebim software suite, business integration software
  • Partner to Internal Application Integration (B2Bi): Adeptia EBIM Suite is perfectly well-suited for the typical partner integration scenarios commonly found when creating interfaces from partner data (such as EDI, EDIFACT, HL7, RosettaNet) to various back-end systems and databases. This solution allows an organization to receive and automatically process files in different formats from various sources. This solution, for the first time in a single product, allows companies to extend their internal business processes to encompass external entities.

  • Internal Application to Partner Integration: Many EBIM Suite customers use this solution to connect internal applications and databases more easily and quickly with external organizations whether they are suppliers, partners, customers, distributors and regulatory bodies. This solution allows an organization to automatically extract and process internal data into standards based files in different formats and then deliver them securely to various external entities.

  • Enterprise Application Integration (EAI): Even in scenarios where the primary integration need is not B2Bi, there is still a need to connect with at least one back-end application or database either as a source or target. Adeptia Suite can act as an Integration Broker and can connect with any message queue or Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) using the built-in JMS protocol to exchange transactional or bulk messages.

  • Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) for Business Intelligence (BI): The ease of use and collaborative environment in Adeptia significantly reduces the time it takes to design and automate data flows. Adeptia offers pre-built data flow templates for quick configuration and deployment.

  • Key Features EBIM Software Suite, Business Integration Software
  • Software as a Service (SaaS) Integration: Adeptia EBIM Suite is ideally suited to create automatic data interfaces between internal application and applications located in the cloud. Further, it is attractively priced and is available on a subscription pricing model. This significantly reduces the size of the budget needed and also reduces the risk of trying this solution.

  • Integration Middleware: Adeptia EBIM software with its services repository is ideal for use as an SOA integration middleware where all the services and data flows can be created, managed and tracked from a single web-based interface.

  • Services SOA Enablement: Many organizations have initiatives to extend their investments in legacy, existing applications by creating a services layer as a front-end to them. The adoption of Web Services has accelerated this trend and has made Web Services Enablement a credible integration strategy. Adeptia provides all the functionality needed to create a web services layer because it includes not only the Web Services client capability but also the ability to publish data flows as Web Services thus allowing business functions and integration APIs to be created for older applications.

  • Process Design and Modeling (BPM): Often important business processes and rules are not documented and they reside in people’s minds. This leads to dependence on certain key individuals who understand these rules, ad-hoc and inconsistent processes, improper application of the rules, and a large training challenge when new hires come in. The solution is to document the high-level and detailed business process flow, the business rules that are involved in the process flow and the tasks and related decisions in the various steps of the flow. Adeptia EBIMS provides an easy to use, web-based tool to do this effectively.

  • Automating process that span partners and customers: Engage customers and partners to work more closely with your organization in key processes that enable significant cost savings and improved customer experience.
