Social network for businesses to create data connections directly to
Adeptia has created its Connect product to completely change the traditional approach of how companies exchange data and information with other businesses. Typically these older ways of “business-to-business integration” require complex software tools to be evaluated by IT departments, purchased and then deployed and managed. Some of these developer-centric tools are B2B gateways, B2B integration tools, Message Brokers, EDI Translators, Managed File Transfer (MFT) tools, or utilizing external services such as Value Added Networks (VANs).
The main problems with the traditional approach has been the large effort needed to build and manage hundreds of connections with trading partners, high cost of expensive IT resources, time delays in adding new customers, lack of flexibility, more burden on customers and partners to be able to connect, dependence on involvement of IT staff. There has been little innovation in the last 20 years in this area and this work remains an inefficient and unproductive exercise. Many companies are simply fed up and outsource this to external vendors such as managed services providers or VANS, which is just a way to transfer work from internal to external resources – the cost of doing this inefficiently is still paid by the companies in vendor fees.
Adeptia Connect changes all this and brings a fresh, new approach.
Adeptia Connect lets your business users create and use connections for onboarding customers and partners with a no-code approach. While IT operates in a governance role by creating pre-built templates for business connectivity, non-technical business users use those templates in an operational role.
Adeptia Connect is an enterprise level integration platform that lets you perform any-to-any integration between your customers and partners. The citizen integrator approach of Adeptia Connect lets your business users shorten onboarding time from months to minutes, thereby accelerating service delivery and revenue ralization while IT becomes more productive.
Adeptia Connect gives power to your business users and lets them onboard customers and partners without any complex coding. Business users can setup and self manage partner data exchange, reducing partner onboarding time by up to 70% and automating up to 90% of onboarding for accelerating service delivery.
With Adeptia Connect, business users can utilize prebuilt connection templates that enable repeatable processes and reusable efficiencies. In their operational role, business users get to drive onboarding without relying on complex coding or IT for day to day operations.
If Adeptia Connect is the front-end for business users, then the back-end integration is still managed and implemented by IT staff. For this they can continue using their existing tool-set or utilize the Adeptia Suite with its simpler, SOA-based approach for application integration. Here all the complexity of data validations, mapping rules, message routing, error-handling etc. is implemented and managed by engineers. By isolating the complex part of connectivity in this back-end integration, it allows IT staff to provide business users with a simpler “walled-garden” at the front-end.
This helps IT organizations to focus on higher-value tasks and become more productive. It helps business users have more self-reliance to do the day-to-day work and so reduces pressure on IT staff because business is not “waiting on IT”.
