High-Performance Systems Integration

Systems integration is all about connecting systems together, automating processes that use data and unlocking the flow of data in your organisation.

What makes 345 different?  We work at the sharp end of integration, where connecting systems together is demanding because of data volume, mission-critical demands or high complexity.  If you want to move a text file from accounts to purchasing you might want to find someone else.  If you need to process data from a million devices around the world every second, you need 345.

High performance systems integration is the gateway to Big Data.  Integration is an essential skill within the discipline of Data Engineering.  

Some examples of the integration work we carry out are:

Scalable APIs:  Building cloud APIs so scalable they can handle mind-boggling numbers of messages every second.

Message Buses:  Message buses are your data backbone.  Every solution that processes big data has one of these, and we can make sure you have one built for your needs.

Workflow and Automation: Systems have been replacing the human element in businesses for decades now, and there is still more to come.  We build decision engines that bring in human eyes for exceptions and edge cases whilst ensuring the standard cases are automated.

Next: Data Platforms

Integration gets you tapped into the data in your business, next you need to understand the data platforms you will need.

Webinar Playback: BizTalk Migrator Launch Webinars #2: Unpacking the tool and more sample scenarios

In this episode Andrew and Dan take you through the test scenarios that ship with the BizTalk Migrator and delve in more detail into the components that are actually generated by the migration tool.

Here is a slide of the components that are potentially generated by the BizTalk Migrator:
This shows that what gets generated is a palette of components that you can use to build just about any integration application in Azure.  

Now we look at the components generated to deliver an XML messaging solution:

Webinar Playback: BizTalk Migrator Launch Webinars #1: First View Here

In this episode Andrew and Dan take you through the BizTalk Migrator from the very start.  

We install the tooling directly from the Chocolatey website and use it to run a BizTalk Migration live on the webinar. We go through the commands you need to do a migration, what the report contains and what’s in it, and the generated content that you deploy to Azure.

After this Dan takes you through the BizTalk application as it appears in Azure, and walks you through running the app we’ve just converted and deployed.
