Companies often have different business applications built over time in different languages, that use different technologies, run on different hardware platforms and operating systems with inconsistent user interfaces. The result is isolated functionality, multiple instances of the same data, redundant manual activities, higher costs and inefficient responses to your customers. And there is an increasing need for business-to-business integration with your trading partners and other companies inside and outside the boundaries of your enterprise.

Application integration means many things to many people. Whether it is SOA, EAI, BPI, Web services or exchanging data in different formats, your company has probably identified a business requirement for applications to work together. Just as employees have to work together to meet business goals, your applications need to do the same. From code-free BPI for business analysts to flexible customized applications and productive middleware, LANSA has the tools you need to integrate the disparate applications, processes and databases that drive your business.

Benefits of business process and application integration

Effective application integration can provide your organization with the following important business benefits:

  • Introduce new applications and technologies more efficiently and at a lower cost
  • More easily modify and automate business processes to meet new needs
  • Provide more delivery channels for your organization
  • Replacing batch processing with real-time communication
  • Linking back-office and ERP systems to new applications like CRM
  • Sharing data between System i, Windows and Web applications via EDI, XML or Web services
  • Integrate with Java applications from a legacy system

With technology fads passing at an alarming rate, and a looming technical skills crisis in most major economies, it makes good business sense to invest in the one agile development tool that is truly future-proof – Visual LANSA.
