Enterprise Service Bus: The solution for structuring data issues

Do you recognize the following situation? You have different systems in which valuable data is stored within your organization, but making this data accessible and then sharing it with the various business departments such as e-commerce or digital marketing is expensive, error-prone and time-consuming. In the rapidly changing digital world you are looking for solutions that can quickly connect data and save the quality of data. Integrating an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) into your IT infrastructure is the solution for these complex integration challenges.

The added value of an ESB:

  • Makes complex integration challenges simpler
  • Increases the manageability and security of data
  • Distributes important data in the data centrally
  • Is standard tooling for normalizing and validating data
  • Provides standardization in data distribution to customers or systems via APIs or data feeds
  • Automatically offers fast APIs for integration with cloud solutions
  • Buffers data, so slow backlinks can still be offered without delay

An ESB creates opportunities

  • Because there is an ESB above the current IT systems, new systems can be directly and some connected to the ESB, so they do not have to be linked to various systems every time. This saves a lot of time, money, data problems and manpower of your organization.
  • The ESB has many standardized integrations with many SAAS applications, making integration easier.
  • Data quality and data duplication is organized by standard tooling of the ESB, which improves the quality of integrations, content and data feeds.
  • The ESB takes care of the speed and monitoring of data exchange with other systems, so that reliability is increased.
  • In a faster time-to-market, organizations can benefit from data exchange and the functions of other applications, allowing your organization to respond more quickly to opportunities and further digitization!

High-end performing API / Web services

Web services ensure that you can handle data from your own and other systems in real-time. The ESB can handle large quantities, delivers extreme performance and buffers (cached) the data so that the web service always delivers! So even if web services of underlying IT systems are equally slow (or not working), the ESB takes care of the data in real-time.

Transform and distribute data

The most important function of an ESB is that it distributes data from one system to another. To achieve this, the data is first transformed so that it is suitable for the system. When you as an organization receive a purchase order, the ESB ensures that it is converted to your own purchasing system so that you no longer have to enter it manually.

The end of a jumble of connections

Systems age, but often still play a core role in the organization. The environment and desired digitization place new demands on technology. There are more and more integrations between systems and interdependence is increasing. What happens if integration is not successful? Do you want to guarantee the continuity of your organization, better control your IT costs and be ready for the future? A simplified IT infrastructure and architecture is a precondition for this.
