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.
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.
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 standards such as Electronic Data Interchange for Administration, Commerce and Transportation (EDIFACT), Health Level Seven (HL7), SWIFT, and others
Data mapping and transformation
Routing and orchestration
Integration flow development and life cycle management tools
Integration flow operational monitoring and management
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.
As the application and data integration platform for Beeline VMS, 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.
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.
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.
Managed Regression Testing: Boomi will regression test submitted applications against every future release, ensuring that platform updates will not break customers’ integration processes.
Because Beeline VMS integrates easily and effectively with so many enterprise systems, clients use our solution as their system of record for all contingent workforce data. Some clients have even found it so versatile that they integrate employee data and use Beeline VMS as system of record for key data essential for total talent optimization.
