Alumio Architecture

A low-code, cloud-based "integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS)" for flexible and future-proof Commerce Connectivity.


Web services

With an extensive set of web services support, the Alumio iPaaS integrates with thousands of systems, cloud apps, and data sources. Its offers connector packages, flexible data mapping and transformation tools, and a powerful software development kit (SDK). Build, maintain, and grow your IT ecosystem without spending on custom coding integrations or expensive tradtional integration solutions like the Enterprise Service Bus (ESB).

Whether it's connecting via REST, JSON, XML, SOAP, Databases, FTP and so on, the Alumio integration platform gives you the services you need to connect your systems.

Built for scalability

Imagine a single tenant, cost-friendly cloud solution that enables you to rapidly integrate any software or system, without the need for custom code. The Alumio integration platform provides these capabilities while allowing you to scale horizontally and roll out your integrations on a global scale, eliminating any potential pitfalls in your ambitions to grow. 

Synchronization patterns

Supporting different synchronization patterns like one-way, bi-directional and many-to-many, Alumio offers limitless integration capabilities. Combining these capabilities via one platform enables full-scale system integrations in flexible, scalable, and future-proof way.

Alumio iPaaS data entities

Being able to normalize data enables you to re-use integration flows

JSON schema 
Alumio uses JSON schemas to offer a clear data format to communicate with. The schemas are used to determine what user input should look like, how configuration objects should be defined, how forms should be rendered, etc. These schemas make for a clear and consistent application interface. 

Data entity types
Data entities for predefined elements are standardized. This means Alumio has an intermediate standard for many data entity types (e.g., orders, products, credit memos, people, etc.). This reduces the general complexity of configuring data flows and interfacing with (partially) known systems and minimizing the mutations needed on the given data.

How to create
procession connections


The Alumio iPaaS has the capability to send and receive data from all kinds of web services, file types, and databases. Its user-friendly interface helps configure endpoints, transform and map data, and monitor API-driven integrations.

Simple interface

Abstracting HTTP transport

Alumio makes it easy to send HTTP requests and trivial to integrate with web services. It offers a simple interface for POST requests, streaming uploads and downloads, to build query strings, using HTTP cookies, upload JSON data, and so on. It can send both synchronous and asynchronous requests using the same interface. The underlying HTTP transport is abstracted away in Alumio, offering you the ability to transport agnostic code. This means no hard dependency on cURL, streams, sockets, or non-blocking event loops. Alumio offers you a way to augment and compose client behavior.


Securing API integrations

Alumio supports all common API authentication methods to help kickstart your next integration. With several methods in the market, Alumio provides a way to apply a standard process for authentication, removing the necessity to apply custom code for setting up authentication processes. Whether you require basic authentication, API keys, Oauth, Oauth2, Oauth2 password grant, OpenID, SAML, TLS or JSON web token, the Alumio iPaaS is designed to accelerate integration projects.


Head start for integrations

Alumio offers the possibility to apply mocking, which means to create mock-ups/mock system components. It enables several development and testing workflows that greatly enhance the agility of engineers with complex infrastructures and systems. API mocking empowers engineers and QA testers in their everyday work.

With mocking, it is possible to start work before a functional API endpoint exists, by making agreements about the API input and output formats.

The basic concept of mocking involves creating a "replacement" version of an API for testing, instead of using an actual API component. It behaves as the original API but lacks many functional and non-functional characteristics of the original component.

Lifecycle management

Managing API-driven integrations

Lifecycle API management has become an important aspect of continuous, collaborative development. It’s a direct result of the increasing complexity of API architecture. An increased focus on the API management lifecycle is indicative of the instrumental role APIs play in today’s business.

Alumio offers several features and best practices to support and maintain API-driven integrations over time. Configurations within Alumio becomes reusable components within the ecosystem of your environment. This allows you to quickly adapt to new business requirements or API changes. Configurations can be standardized and maintained within development pipelines of partners, enabling you to fully integrate end-to-end integrations within larger programs.

Alumio also supports its users with monitoring and alerting of API processes. The configurations of API endpoints in integrations can be enhanced and updated to support upcoming or newly introduced API versions.
