Multi Pattern & Hybrid Integration Platform
Integration Lifecycle Management
Building a clear IT landscape can be challenging. With the eMagiz platform you can work with a fixed, clear process. So you are able to integrate fast, flexible and future-proof. This process is divided into six steps – the Integration Lifecycle Manager:
The Capture phase is the first phase in the process to create an integration between two systems. In this phase, the user can scope the integration via an interview based approach so that the integration can be constructed properly in the next stages.
This phase also creates the high level integration landscape by defining systems and message flows.
In addition, the user is able to select an integration type during this phase. This way you ensure that you create the right integration from the start and thus avoiding rework in later stages.
In the Design phase the user is enabled to create more details in the message flows of the landscape. By creating a proper data model of the messages that are exchanged via the different systems, the user can easily map the messages via the “Common Data Model (CDM)” to the message definitions. The Cloud architecture of the integration landscape is further defined including connectivity details.
In addition, you can reuse standard building blocks and best practices that are available in the eMagiz Store which helps you to speed up the construction of your integration.
In the Create Phase, the real model is created based on the Design phase. Message flows and data exchanges are translated to the model, using standard building blocks in eMagiz.
The model can be further enhanced with logic, transformations and filtering. Components from the eMagiz store can be configured in this phase.
The eMagiz platform allows for simple unit testing of the created message flows. Messages can be put into the model and the results verified, allowing to speed up the development process.
In the Deploy phase, the integrations are committed to the different environments. eMagiz has a Release functionality which allows the user to select what parts of the integration model can deployed in either Test, Acceptance or Production.
The Deploy Phase allows to access all the environments via a single user interface, and therefore reduces the risks involved in managing these environments.
To further ease the deployment, the eMagiz Deployment plan allows to complete reproduce all the steps necessary to promote the model step by step in an automated way.
With the Manage phase, one can administer the complete integration landscape. The performance of the different runtimes, messages queues can be monitored. Errors and warning are displayed including specific filtering. Specific triggers and alerts can be set to notify users to take action.
Within the eMagiz platform, design time and runtime are separated from each other. This provides a number of essential benefits in the Improve phase.You are able to set up your IT landscape per integration or process, with no impact on your performance. You can also add integrations, connections, fields, etc. without the need to temporarily take the landscape offline.
Continuous Improvement, Continuous Deployment!
