INTERNAL EXCHANGE.​​

EAI WITH LOBSTER.

Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) refers to the creation of data connections between the various IT systems within a company. By seamlessly sharing information, internal processes can be automated across systems and endpoints, resulting in error-free operations. With the middleware Lobster_data, you can implement EAI-supported communication consistently across all internal systems and departments.

Benefits.

  • Native connections to multiple different systems, e.g. SAP S/4HANA
  • Smooth business process integration
  • Improved data quality through seamless data exchange
  • Optimisation of productivity in all areas
  • Cost savings through automated dataflow
  • Higher customer satisfaction through faster query processing

CONNECTIONS.

Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) has a promising future in terms of API and workflow. Many webshop systems and platforms have dedicated APIs that can be implemented with Lobster_data. This includes REST as the currently most commonly used API variant, with HTTPS as the protocol and JSON or XML as the data format.
For security reasons, APIs are usually preceded by an authorisation or authentication procedure such as 0Auth 2.0. And Lobster_data also supports this. By the way, we have already connected many of the most successful e-commerce systems and webshops with a broad coverage.

EAI ensures seamless networking of various systems within a company and reflects the flow of information within and between departments without any disruptions. The integration of applications, complex business processes, and all partners is a crucial part of it. This leads to increased efficiency and higher productivity.

A promising EAI trend in view of the development of cloud computing, AI or machine learning is the interaction with Application Programming Interfaces (API) and workflow management. In the past, proprietary middleware systems were often used for this purpose, but they are expensive and also difficult to maintain. With the increasingly widespread use of APIs and workflow tools, the technology options for companies have changed in a very positive way.
This trend is also reflected in the API management with Lobster_data. It allows applications to communicate with each other and exchange data. With the user-friendly creation of new APIs or the versioning of existing ones, companies are also able to respond to changing business requirements in the shortest possible time.
Workflow tools support the automation and optimisation of business processes. Lobster_data offers the major advantage of creating and managing workflows and business rules on only one central platform instead of distributing them across different applications or systems.

Companies are increasingly using cloud-based applications because the virtual storage and synchronisation of data improves data management. Also with a view to the increasingly mobile working world. EAI is essential to provide secure access for all users. It integrates data from different cloud-based applications into a local system – or vice versa. For mobile applications, EAI even has to exchange data with a backend system.

A common use case of EAI is the integration of information from various source systems within a company. Thanks to EAI, data from the marketing department, sales or accounting, can, for example, be merged, reconciled and made available to the responsible employees. Often, it is only when data from several departments is synthetically processed in this way that weak points can be recognised and new, more efficient processes set up.

EAI can be used not only for data integration but also for process integration. In this case, process-relevant information is automatically transferred from one system to another, allowing administrative order processing or machine maintenance planning to be carried out without human intervention, for example. EAI also supports error-free transfer of all data from the old to the new system during migration projects within an organisation, ensuring efficient modernisation processes.

Lobster_data is one of the most integral systems in our entire company! And the price-performance ratio is simply unbeatable.
