How iPaaS helps your business to be compliant and secure

For businesses to be successful, we genuinely believe it's vital to have a connected IT ecosystem. Everything and everyone in your digital ecosystem should connect across channels, devices, and platforms. This blog will give you one of the many reasons to be thinking of an integration strategy: compliant and secure.

Compliancy

With more integrations required, the increased risk of data loss and, ultimately, privacy means companies focus more and more on security. They must adhere to new privacy laws and regulations and security guidelines.

Compliance is about proving how you track and manage data, and this is extremely difficult to do with complex integrations and no tools to help.

An iPaaS enables you to be able to execute GDPR in the following business requests:

  • Enhancing existing individual rights
  • A right to erasure and the right to be forgotten
  • The right to receive personal data
  • Be able to implement GDPR user interfaces
  • The rights to notice, access, rectification and to object
  • Remove data from (external) sources

An iPaaS helps you to be compliant with privacy legislation like SOC2, GDPR, CCPA, FERPA, and HIPAA.

Security
For any iPaaS, SaaS application, or cloud service, security is crucial. Safety at Alumio is a top priority. We have included security on all facets of Alumio: network and infrastructure levels, application and platform layers, and data level. This three-pronged security approach ensures that your data is never shown to unauthorized parties, remains a safe throughput between applications, and that you have access to your data anytime, anywhere, wherever you want.

This blog, 'Compliant and Secure,' only showed one of the eight advantages of why it is interesting to include an integration platform in your IT infrastructure.

6 Key Business Benefits of using Alumio’s iPaaS:

1) Let the API Datapoints be created via SAP Consultants

Risk of low quality & performance errors
If your team will create the data points in the API’s for a fully blown SAP B2B portal, for the first time, the risk of forgetting data fields, the wrong type / logic of creating webservices in a way they will not perform is enormous.    

Let's give you 1 example and insight:   In order to create a customer or so-called self-service portal in your B2B eCommerce, where customers can have a look to their current stats of orders and deliveries, or the history of orders, you need to create 2 separate webservice to make sure you are not over requesting the SAP API. You need to create a separate web service which only requests the header information (invoice number,  for only the latest 10 items, etc and 1 separate which request the detailed information of an invoice. rserd customer will look for a list of first and only will have a look to 1 order/ delivery. The API call of the headers is exceptionally light, and the request of detailed information is a bit heavier. By using 2 APIs call for this feature, you are preventing to request all the detailed information for every user, which will visit the self-service portal. This way if building the API’s is 98% lighter than requesting all detailed information for all orders by all users!

The risk of configuring your webservice in a way which will get a big load to your SAP is enormous. When requesting all products, B2B Prices, Orders or Invoices to your SAP using real-time calls via a wrong logic, it may cause serious  performance problems. It is  therefore extremely important to configure the webservice with the right logic, using a smart caching  mechanism, to not request data in real-time by using “call” requests to your  API webservices, however  use a push mechanism to prevent big load and performance issues

2) Use an off the shelf certified and proven SAP API Plugin
