In the rapidly evolving sphere of digitalization, connecting software and systems is not just the most effective way to keep up, but it is also the future. However, creating these integrations between software in the traditional way, using custom code solutions or plugins, results in a huge list of general problems that severely hinder digital growth, such as:

  • Being costly, time-consuming, and requiring coding expertise to create, as well as to manage
  • Limited integration features for speed, flexibility, and scalability  
  • Dependency on senior developers or multiple partners to add to or modify your integrations
  • Manual monitoring and logging and no automatic data insights
  • Missing key data security features and a higher likelihood of system crashes
  • Lack of control over your data and increased data silos

And last but not least, the more you try to expand your software integrations using custom code or plugins, the harder it gets to organize, leading to a debilitating, tangled IT landscape.

How the Alumio iPaaS helps prevent general integration problems

Alumio presents a cloud-based, no-code integration platform that helps you to quickly, and cost-effectively, connect software such as ERP, e-commerce, PIM, e(POS), and marketing systems, among others. It allows you to create, manage and monitor your integrations via a user-friendly interface that significantly lowers the threshold for technical competence required. It offers an automated logging and monitoring system and makes all your connections visible and accessible on one single platform, making your data accessible and easy to control across integrations.

The Alumio iPaaS helps to prevent, and altogether avoid, the general integration problems that occur when creating integrations using custom-code or plugins, providing a wide arrange of advantages such as:

Upscale integrations with junior developers
Being a low-code platform, Alumio’s user-friendly interface is easy enough for junior developers or data experts to manage, freeing senior developers to work on problems that require custom coding expertise.

Interchange integrations without any code
Simply change, replace or add new connections via the user-friendly interface to suit your business requirements, without any custom code or loss of data integrity.

Automatically receive monitoring and logging
The Alumio iPaaS helps you to detect and resolve integration errors quickly while providing in-depth insights that will allow you to effectively adjust and improve your integrations.

Prevent data loss or system crashes
The Alumio iPaaS caches your data on dedicated cloud-space, allowing you to transfer data from other software or from the cached software to ensure business continuity and especially during a system crash.

Centralize your data on one integration platform
No matter how many new integrations you create, the Alumio iPaaS helps to prevent data silos from forming and makes data across all your integrations available on its user-friendly interface.

Ensure privacy compliance
The Alumio iPaaS supports centralized data availability and compliance with privacy legislation such as the GDPR, SOC2, CCPA, FERPA, and HIPAA.

Choose from a selection of integration templates
To help create faster integrations, Alumio’s partners have built pre-mapped connections as integration templates on certain software, allowing you to connect faster and ensure ‘faster time to market’.

Use our integrations features and build future-proof IT landscapes
Helping you to visibly see all your connections, Alumio makes it easy to untangle your integrations and scale up your IT landscape in a sustainable and future-proof way. When it comes to connecting different software, creating point-to-point integrations using custom code can be quite a nightmare. They are hard to reuse, troubleshooting them is time-consuming, they generally don’t have automated monitoring or logging, and they can only be managed or modified by (senior) developers. Using marketplace plugins as an alternative comes with a fixed set of limited features and increases your third-party dependency for creating and managing your integrations. An iPaaS (integration Platform as a Service) doesn’t just offer a faster, more flexible, and future-proof solution for creating integrations, but it also helps tackle a lot of the general problems that occur when using traditional methods for creating integrations.
