To keep up with the fast pace of business and escalating customer demands, organizations must have the ability to respond quickly to change. As businesses have depended on computerized information systems more and more to run their business, different departments and divisions within large enterprises have raced ahead and incorporated disparate business applications, databases and business intelligence infrastructure that do not easily talk to each other and exchange information. These information “silos” caused by legacy applications and a diverse IT architecture prevent smooth information flow between different departments and across geographies.
From our pedigree of software product engineering, having developed, implemented and integrated multiple technology stacks across multiple generations of software, Xtapps has extensive experience in systems, applications and data integration. Starting from socket level integration, our engineers have worked on embedded SQL, proprietary middleware, XML based middleware, messaging based middleware to web services/SOA level integration.
Xtapps Application Integration services range from point-to-point ad hoc integration projects to tactically integrate a new or upgraded data source or application into an enterprise information infrastructure to a structured information processing and delivery framework that has helped many organizations break down information barriers across the enterprise, accelerate business processes, eliminate ineffective routine operations, verify data validity and consistency across data warehouses, applications and geographical locations. Our Enterprise Application Integration solutions are designed to deliver measurable results and rapid ROI, and strike the right balance between business and IT needs.
Depending on our client’s actual needs and current IT infrastructure, Xtapps distinguishes between several types of integration techniques which ensure best return on investments and reduced cost of ownership of the whole information infrastructure. We offer the following integration services.
