In addition to EDI integration company, the DIS Integration Group has extensive experience into other enterprise integration arenas such as Web Services, EAI tools (Enterprise Application Integration tools) and Oracle Retail implementations.
The DIS Integration Group has Senior Level Web Services consultants who have the expertise in integrating Web-based applications using the XML, SOAP, WSDL and UDDI open standards over an Internet protocol backbone. Many of our customers have required the need to communicate with each other and with clients but they have no intimate knowledge of each other’s IT systems behind the firewall. This is where our DIS Integration Group sets up Web Services so that different sources (java, perl, windows, unix, etc.) can all talk to each other via shared business logic, data and processes.
Our DIS Integration Group has extensive background in providing customers a Web Services platform that integrates multiple, diverse applications. For example, we have provided a Java-based web service on Solaris that is accessible from our customer’s Visual Basic program that runs on Windows. As well, we have implemented Services using C# to build new web services on Windows that can be invoked from our customer’s web application that is based on JavaServer Pages (JSP) and runs on Linux.
Whether fixed bid or an hourly cost model, our Web Services team will build the infrastructure so your applications are integrated, can speak to each other and your business processes become less of a cost and more of a competitive advantage.
EAI (Enterprise Application Integration)
Many businesses have turned to DIS to integrate their disparate legacy applications with other types of business software such as supply chain management applications, ERP systems, CRM applications for managing customers, business intelligenceapplications, payroll and human resources systems. Typically, without an EAI strategy, these systems cannot communicate with one another in order to share data or business rules. Many of our customers witnessed this lack of communication which led to inefficiencies, wherein identical data are stored in multiple locations, or straightforward processes are unable to be automated.
The DIS Integration Group will provide services to link such applications within a single organization together in order to simplify and automate these business processes to the greatest extent possible, while at the same time avoiding having to make sweeping changes to the existing applications or data structures. Many times we see these legacy systems that are no longer supported by the original vendor but need to be linked together with different operating systems, different database solutions, computer languages, or different date and time formats, or may be legacy systems that are no longer supported by the vendor who originally created them.
DIS’ EAI Consultants encompasses methodologies such as:
- Object-oriented programming.
- Distributed, cross-platform program communication using message brokers with Common Object Request Broker Architecture and COM+.
- Modification of enterprise resource planning (ERP) to fit new objectives.
- Enterprise-wide content and data distribution using common databases and data standards implemented with the Extensible Markup Language (XML).
- Middleware, message queueing, and other approaches
