B2B Integration in the Cloud


Published on

Driven by new business processes and regulation, the need for data exchange between organisations is heavily increasing. As 'Trading Partners', companies exchange data using electronic messages or 'events'. The automation of this B2B communication is very different compared to the use of Enterprise Service Buses within an organisation.

This presentation will show different insights in protocols and message formats which are being used in business, from file transfer and EDI until AS2 with different XML dialects. Also security and integration with 'endpoints' are explained.

  • All sorts of data exchanged...
  • In the most basic form, a VAN (value-added network) acts as a regional post office. They receive transactions, examine the 'from' and the 'to' information, and route the transaction to the final recipient. VANs provide a number of additional services, e.g. retransmitting documents, providing third party audit information, acting as a gateway for different transmission methods, and handling telecommunications support.

  • From cloud to on-premise is often hardest...
  • 1 to many: e.g. Connected to X.400 => no seperate VAN supscription necessary
  • REST API: Tickets: search and listMessages: search, list and view detailsChannels: search and listCatalogue: search and listPush a message
  • Flow chart: to illustrate the steps through which data is transformed, routed and manupulated from source to destination.
  • Als metafoor: een connector is als een plug en een API als een socket
  • 2: atoms can be deployed in the cloud to Boomi’s data center or a 3th party data center such as e.g. Amazon ???? How does this work?
  • Atoms track state to ensure that only unique data is processed (dupl. Detection)
  • Library: built by a community, the AtomSphere ecosystem expandsVisual Integration Technology (point-and-click, drag-and-drop)Library of pre-built connectors and process maps
  • Monitor health and activity of all AtomsReview detailed logs of processesSubscribe to alerts that broadcast via RSS for proactive notification of failuresVia Managament Tab users can follow up integration process(es) executionsAssociated log and status notificationsRetry capabilities for messages which had an error during transit
  • High-availability also ‘self-healing capabilities’Concept of environments: to have the same integration process pointed to different locations (e.g. Test, QA, Production)
  • TODO: put graphical example, eg For example, a simple pipeline could connect to a source system such as SugarCRM using a SugarCRM Snap, retrieve select data, transform it using a series of functional Snaps, and then write it to a target DB using a DBWrite Snap.
  • SL SnapCenter: central command center for enterprises to build, deploy, manage and visualize the complex data flow through their integrated applications
  • All end points are HTTP compatible data services, providing a REST interface to SaaS applications from any web technology.

    3. 3. Abstract<br /> Gedreven door nieuwe business processen en door regulering neemt de behoefte voor gegevensuitwisseling tussen organisaties hand over hand toe. Als 'trading partners' wisselen bedrijven massaal gegevens uit onder de vorm van elektronische berichten of 'events'. De automatisering van deze B2B-communicatie kent zeer belangrijke verschillen ten overstaan van de integratie door middel van 'enterprise service buses' binnen een organisatie.<br /> Tijdens deze avondconferentie verkrijgt U inzicht in de verschillende protocollen en berichtformaten die terzake worden toegepast, gaande van file transfer en EDI tot AS2 met allerlei XML-dialecten. Ook beveiliging en integratie met 'eindsystemen' wordt uitvoerig behandeld.<br /> De markt van B2B-integratie-oplossingen is overigens in volle evolutie. En met de komst van 'cloud computing' zal de wereld van B2B-communicatie nog drastisch wijzigen. Communicatie via de cloud, en met partners in de cloud, vormt een belangrijk toekomstperspectief !<br /> De sprekers geven de nodige achtergrond en leiden U, in één avond, door de boeiende evoluerende wereld van B2B-integratie al dan niet via cloud computing.<br />

    120. 120. Microsoft IAAS announced<br /> Also this week, we disclosed an early peek into our strategy of “Integration as a Service” which begins to shed light on how we will be taking the integration workload to the cloud.  This is a transition we have already made with Windows Server and SQL Server (as we have released Azure flavors of these server products); and we are committed to following this same path with integration.<br /> Our plans to deliver a true Integration service – a multi-tenant, highly scalable cloud service built on AppFabric and running on Windows Azure – will be an important and game changing step for BizTalk Server, giving customers a way to consume integration easily without having to deploy extensive infrastructure and systems integration.<br />
