Are you delivering the value to your customers you’d like to be?

Hybrid approach

Many clients come to Art2link to discuss supplier issues. Their suppliers demand the best solutions and at the best value! In order to meet those demands, they must seek out every competitive advantage. Art2link can assist you in meeting those demands with its Hybrid Integration Solutions. At this point, you’re asking yourself what are Hybrid Integration Solutions and how can they help maximize my productivity, service my clients and add to the bottom line? Simply put, Hybrid Integration allows Art2link to adapt your current systems without losing the best practices that are already in place. As we look into the future, there will always be challenges! Your clients will expect you to adapt and adapt quickly.

Art2link can help you adapt. Let’s take a look at the EDI 214 and HL7 as examples. EDI 214 is typically used by transportation companies to provide shippers and clients an updated status of their orders. Whereas HL7 allows medical personnel to access historical records of patients. Both provide great examples of where data needs to be accessed from outside systems, mobile tracking of shipping or a doctor looking for information from home to assist with patient needs. Yet again, this is where having Hybrid Integration allows seamless access on most any platform. Our onsite system, designed to your specifications, is securely connected, via cloud, allowing for agility and access from anywhere at any time utilizing today’s high-speed connections.

Why Chose A Hybrid Integration Solution?

Cost savings

Why pay for infrastructure that’s seldom used? Utilizing a Hybrid Integration solution, your data is sent via cloud, Azure in our case, assuring that all your systems are fully functional at all times. Not only are you saving capital but you’re also minimizing your exposure to maintenance costs and downtime.

Security & Integrity

Today’s companies are defined by their data, how it’s stored, accessed and secured. Simply put, a breach is not acceptable but finding an appropriate balance can be a challenge. Having sensitive data stored offsite while allowing access and continuous interaction outside of a secure firewall could be viewed as problematic.  Having BizTalk Server on premise that utilizes logic apps and only interacts with the cloud when needed is an ideal solution. From an Azure Logic Apps standpoint, security can be as in depth as you chose with a primary or secondary security key, incoming IP address restriction and more!

Agility & Availability

One of the hottest topics is the need to access the information anywhere, anytime and of course in a secure manner. Hybrid integration solutions offers the ability to access that data from any enabled device. Allocating resources as needed (adding or subtracting) is one of the advantages that comes with the cloud and unlocks a world of options to fully customize your resources based on your exact needs.


Why BizTalk and Logic Apps

With BizTalk Server 2016 extending your integration solution to the cloud has never been easier. You can now connect your On-Premise solution many cloud-based systems and providers by using the Azure Logic Apps Adapter. This way you can access lots of Software as a Service (SaaS) applications and let Logic Apps do the heavy work for you with its connectors. You can also have your own cognitive flow of data within Logic Apps and use Azure Functions to empower your business. For instance, you can have a BizTalk Orchestration that consumes a specific EDI file and version and sends pieces of it to Logic Apps to be reflected in an Online portal for your customers to review. And now with the Enterprise Integration Pack for EDI solutions in Logic Apps, you have even more options and controls to work with, but that’s a story for another post.
