KiyOh Connector Template

At Alumio we are always looking for ways to improve and expand our platform. One of those ways is through offering a set of standard integrations that can be used to connect popular systems out of the box. We are proud to announce the availability of our latest connector template which can be used to connect KiyOh.

KiyOh allows merchants to collect user-generated content by sending review requests to customers. This service works by synchronizing orders placed within Magento. The orders are synchronized using a module, which sends the relevant order data to KiyOh as soon as the order is placed. Choosing this method of synchronization carries some risk because something may go wrong resulting in a faulty order, or a never-send review request.

Instead of connecting the two systems using a module, merchants are encouraged to use the API to make these kinds of transactions. An API can be seen as a contract between two parties, in which agreements are made about how and where data from the platform can be accessed. Alumio utilizes these contracts to move data across these applications.

This standard connector of Alumio uses these APIs, or contracts, to make sure that all data moves from Magento to KiyOh in a safe, proper and timely manner. Our connectors are comprehensively tested by a specialized testing company. This way you are ensured that you never lose an opportunity to engage your customers in promoting your brand.

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
