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. Enter the Alumio integration platform, a way for businesses to avoid the hassles associated with custom code and integrate systems with unparalleled flexibility! Keep on reading to learn what integration problems Alumio helps solve and how.

What are the common problems associated with integrating systems via custom code?

  • 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

Most importantly, customer demands and expectations rise to new heights, increasing the demand for digital and real-time services such as Saas and cloud applications. However, with each new software solution that a business integrates with, managing these connections and the resulting data exchange becomes more challenging. Without a proper platform to integrate all these systems, the benefits of digital transformation and business automation are overshadowed by a significant problem: an entangled IT landscape that is not ready to accommodate change nor growth.

How does Alumio prevent general integration problems?

Alumio is a cloud-native, low-code "integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS)" that helps you quickly and cost-effectively connect software such as ERP, CRM, PIM, e-commerce, marketing systems, and more. 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 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

As 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

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 detect and resolve integration errors quickly while providing in-depth insights, allowing you to effectively adjust and improve your integrations.

Prevent data loss or system crashes

The Alumio iPaaS caches your data on a dedicated cloud space, allowing you to transfer data from other software or the cached software to ensure business continuity, 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 specific software, allowing you to connect faster and ensure ‘faster time to market’.

Use our integration features and build future-proof IT landscapes

Helping you to see all your connections visibly, Alumio makes it easy to untangle your integrations and scale up your IT landscape in a sustainable and future-proof way. Creating point-to-point integrations using custom code can be a nightmare when connecting different software. 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, increasing 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, it also helps tackle many of the general problems that occur when using traditional methods to create integrations.


In short, seamless software integration is vital for competitiveness and future success. Traditional methods, like custom coding or plugins, present widespread problems. Alumio's integration platform offers a transformative solution, enabling efficient system integration without these issues. Its no-code, cloud-based platform empowers users, including junior developers, while automated monitoring prevents errors and data loss. Centralized data, compliance, and integration templates ensure scalability and efficiency. Alumio's iPaaS overcomes challenges associated with custom code, providing a faster and forward-looking approach to integration. Let's integrate the future together!
