Selecting the proper software solution for data integration can be tricky, with so many different choices available. Besides, these options provide you with websites, catalogs, and pamphlets, only leaving you with half the story told. For that very reason, we've worked to compile several well-known and lesser-known data integration platforms into a single and easy-to-read document to aid in your decision making. In this blog, we'll discuss the pros and cons of custom code integration.
More than likely, the first integrated software solutions you created were probably bespoke or custom coded, end to end, integrations. If you’ve already got your own ERP application and want to support integration from other data entities with another application, then you’ve likely asked your software partner to add some custom code to support communication between your APIs.
This type of approach works best when you have no more than 2 applications to integrate. If you feel comfortable enough in the stability of your integration team, then this should work for you. However, we always recommend that you agree on the code and have robust discussions regarding how the integration will function.
Using custom code for integrations is just one of the many ways to integrate your applications. Learn more by downloading our free white paper 'How to choose an integration solution.'
