Enable growth and scalability with an iPaaS in your IT landscape

Performance is essential for integrations
An iPaaS makes all your connections visible and understandable on its user-friendly graphical interface, makes it easy for system integrators or agencies to quite literally be on the same page with project managers and C-level, when planning tweaks, improvements or budget allocations on their system integrations.

Enable growth and scalability with an iPaaS in your IT landscape

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: scalability.

Being aware of the importance of how integration, API connectivity, data, and AI, play a significant part in today's landscape makes it easier to make decisions about moving forward and upscaling.

"Performance is essential for integrations."

This concerns performance of active integrations. Do these overheat? Are they limited by CPU power, memory, or network bandwidth? Or are they fully scalable?

Performance is also vital for scaling up integration processes, setting up workflows, and rolling out additional integrations, with or without relationships to existing integrations.

Alumio is developed for:

  • Performance for unlimited scalability
  • Business process design
  • Setting up combined data flows to multiple connections
  • The future of ML and AI

To ensure Alumio software can always be scaled to meet performance requirements, we offer various Alumio configurations.

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

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
