Playing nicely with other systems
19 July 2022
In today’s rapidly evolving world, organisations often find themselves adopting multiple IT systems in order to address a variety of business needs. Sometimes, these systems can be older essential legacy systems which sometimes could be unsupported.
Quite often these multiple systems begin to present their own problems as information can become siloed and this presents a new challenge for organisations to overcome.
At finao, we understand the challenges this presents. It is important that systems talk to each other, we aim to provide a solution that will ensure a unified information ecosystem.
Fundamentally there has to be an information hierarchy with clear roles and responsibilities for each system. The hierarchy means that there should be a source of truth for essential business data. Data such as employee, project and asset information is essential data and would probably be used across multiple systems, that data integrity must be manintained and it must be available to all systems that make up your organisation's software ecosystem. Once the essential business data is identified and the source of truth defined and connected to your other systems, roles and responsibilities can be understood.
finao provides a range of solutions to ensure your ecosystem maintains a unified approach to essential business data and new business challenges. Data can be made available on request to your other systems or provided in real time between systems. The frequency would be dictated by your business needs. We call this playing nicely with other systems and our system can be made to securely integrate with any of your other systems. This means a finao system can provide essential business needs whilst maintaining essential data in realtime with other systems.
Solutions for integrating with other systems include;
- API's - REST and SOAP
