In Adeptia Connect, business users have access to a catalog of data onboarding templates that are used in automating data exchange with partners and customers. These templates are embedded with pre-defined set of rules that govern the type of data formats required for inbound or outbound files, data validations, and transformations. Templates make it easy for the business user to simply select a client from the company’s partner network and onboard the client’s data into the system of record. IT users create these templates that the business users can then use for data exchange. Templates can be unique to a specific type of product line or to the type of business service that the company is providing to its clients.
For example, here is a snapshot of data onboarding templates in Adeptia Connect for a company that provides pension and retirement services to its clients.

Business user selects a template and begins to configure a transaction to onboard data from a client. A single template can be reused to onboard data from hundreds or thousands of clients. By leveraging reusable templates, companies no longer have to create point-to-point integrations with each client that become impossible to manage and end up being “a spaghetti code”.

In cases where data conversion is needed, Adeptia provides a very intuitive, graphical data conversion interface that opens in user’s browser screen and shows all the data elements that need to be mapped from source file to a target format.
Adeptia’s mapping (data transformation) tool is a graphical, drag and drop interface that allows business users or non-technical users to convert any source data to a common or canonical data format. The approach of creating a pre-defined list of templates allows IT to offload a lot of the upstream self-service integration work to the business teams. Consequently, this approach frees IT resources to focus on more complex integrations encompassing routing and processing of data to downstream systems such as ERP and financial applications.
