With information systems increasingly offering overlapping data and functionality, systems integration is more than just a technical requirement; it is a best practice. Systems integration saves organizations money by reducing or eliminating duplicate data entry and time spent reconciling discrepancies between different systems. Integration also enables streamlining of business processes and improves data access in support of data-driven decision making. Integration is vital to realizing the full benefits of any new technology solution.

EBD has over 10 years of experience in integrating diverse systems, applications and platforms. Our systems integration services cover the areas of ERP, Business Intelligence, Enterprise Content Management, Enterprise Portals, Migration, Hosting and Identity Management. They ensure that:

  • You are getting the most out of your existing technology infrastructure.
  • Your architecture is scalable and performs at optimal levels.
  • Your infrastructure meets the desired standards for Security, Reliability and Availability.
  • You make the right technology choices and not investing in redundant or duplicate systems.
  • Your existing systems are well-integrated with new technologies.

As part of our systems Integration services, we provide services for integration of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) applications whereby we integrate separate, stove-pipe ERP systems with each other or with other enterprise information resources. We have experience with SAP, Oracle, PeopleSoft, Siebel, and Lawson ERP systems.

ERP systems are built with the purpose of tightly integrating processes within an enterprise such as planning, manufacturing, sales, marketing, inventory control, order tracking, customer service, finance and human resources. In every ERP implementation, there comes a time where these wide-reaching, all encompassing systems need to communicate with a) other ERP systems within the organization, b) organization’s data warehouse, c) custom developed enterprise systems or d) legacy applications. EBD’s ERP integration services enable these inter system communications.

Where appropriate, we use standards based integration frameworks. We have extensive experience with message-based EAI platforms such as TIBCO, Vitria and JMS. As part of our approach, we create metadata from target applications, transform and map interfaces, and manage stateless processes to create integration services with minimal writing of custom integration code.

Our Approach
EBDs uses a structured analytical approach to designing and implementing interfaces. We work with organizations and system vendors to:
  • Define new business processes to be enabled by the interface.
  • Establish the data that must be exchanged between systems to support the new processes.
  • Identify and evaluate available options for establishing the interface.
  • Prepare written specifications for the interface that can be used to develop and/or procure interface components, if needed.
  • Manage development (if needed), procurement, testing, and implementation of the interface.

Our approach focuses on research and practice. Backed by strong processes, we collaborate effectively with your business and IT organization to create an integrated, enterprise-wide IT platform to suit your business needs. This approach enables us to execute large-scale turnkey projects, right from concept to implementation.
