How a Hybrid Integration Strategy Accelerates Digital Transformation

There was a time when VMS providers struggled to integrate their systems with a variety of enterprise software applications. Some still do. But not Beeline.

Beeline was the first VMS to introduce iPaaS – robust enterprise Integration-Platform-as-a-Service middleware. Now, using a simple drag-and-drop process, Beeline can integrate VMS functions and data quickly and easily with virtually any critical on-premises or cloud-based enterprise software application.

100% integration success rate

Integrating with an organization’s existing enterprise applications is critical to unlocking the power and potential of any VMS to give clients global visibility across their extended workforce. While Beeline is extremely powerful as a stand-alone solution, its ability to tie into other software systems utilized by HR, Procurement, Finance, and Operations gives organizations a unique and holistic enterprise-wide view of their workforce, along with other benefits that include:

Beeline, with its robust Integration-Platforms-as-a-Service (iPaaS) – powered by Dell Boomi, interfaces seamlessly with enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions, HRIS applications, eProcurement, security, and other software applications. In fact, we have a 100% success rate for integrating with our clients’ systems. Overall, integrating with Beeline tends to be lower-cost and lower-risk because our seasoned integration experts work closely with our clients’ IT teams throughout the implementation process.

iPaaS drag-and-drop integration solutions

Our integration-platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) solution gives us the ability to  implement data, application, API, and process integration projects involving any combination of cloud-resident and on-premises endpoints. This is achieved by developing, deploying, executing, managing, and monitoring integration processes/flows which connect multiple endpoints so they all work together.

Our iPaaS capabilities include:

  • Communication protocol connectors such as FTP, HTTP, Advanced Message Queueing Protocol (AMQP), Applicability Statement 1 (AS1)/2/3/4, and others

  • Application connectors/adapters for SaaS and on-premises packaged applications

  • Data formats such as XML, JavaScript Object Notation (JSON), Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1) and others

  • Data standards such as Electronic Data Interchange for Administration, Commerce and Transportation (EDIFACT), Health Level Seven (HL7), SWIFT, and others

  • Data mapping and transformation

  • Data quality

  • Routing and orchestration

  • Integration flow development and life cycle management tools

  • Integration flow operational monitoring and management

Our iPaaS solution is robust enough to be considered an enterprise iPaaS (EiPaaS), since it:

  • Is designed to support enterprise-class integration projects; that is, projects requiring, high availability/disaster recovery (HA/DR), security, service-level agreements (SLAs), and technical support from the provider

  • Can be used for multiple integration scenarios including application integration and data integration use cases

  • Is fully managed by the vendor for patching and upgrades

  • Provides flexibility for the deployment of the runtime engine for a number of hybrid deployment options.

Service from a Gartner “Magic Quadrant” Leader

As the application and data integration platform for Beeline, we selected Dell Boomi. Named a “Leader” in Gartner’s 2018 “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service” report, Boomi is the industry’s leading iPaaS solution.

Among the key benefits Boomi can provide are:

  • Integrate all your applications and data source. Seamlessly integrate any number and combination of on-premise and cloud-based applications.

  • Support diverse integration patterns: The Boomi platform supports all key integration and communication patterns, including application-to-application, pub-sub, real-time and event-driven web services, streaming, batch, ETL integrations, and more.

  • Ease-of-use: Boomi’s intuitive UI provides drag-and-drop mapping tools, pre-built integration processes, re-usable components, along with a vast library of connectors, allowing simple to sophisticated integrations with no coding required.

  • Faster time-to-value: Boomi leverages best practices across its entire user base to provide crowdsourced intelligence features that significantly speed up data mapping and error resolution. Centralized management and monitoring tools further increase efficiency and simplify reporting and audit trails.

Boomi’s key features include a rich set of capabilities to speed integrations and simplify management:

  • Robust Connector Library: a vast and growing library of application specific and technology connectors to support cloud applications and infrastructure, as well as on-premise software

  • Pre-built Integration Processes: Process Libraries provide pre-built starter processes for common applications and use cases. Users can deploy the processes as-is or modify them to suit their specific requirements.

  • Integration Packs: Standardize the underlying integration logic and give users the flexibility to change specific configuration settings

  • Simplified Data Mapping: millions of indexed mappings automatically recommend dataflows for new integrations based on successful configurations built by other users

  • Automated Trouble Shooting: resolutions to most common errors are presented within the UI, based on crowdsourced contributions from both the Boomi support team and the user community.
