Data integration and data analytics at the core

Last week we published the first part of our article on omnichannel, which came as a result out of an interview with Duncan Avis, Customer Enterprise Lead at Global KPMG Connected. We said that according to one of the latest KPMG studies, companies successful at omnichannel are also successful at eight core capabilities which imply connecting the front, middle and back …

REST API component - Deutsche Bahn

An overwhelming number of applications use REST API to ensure communication with other applications and services. In fact, we have a REST API of our own and most of our connectors are built on top of certain REST APIs, such as MailChimp, SugarCRM, Salesforce, Magento, and so on. Typically, REST APIs are very fine-granular creatures composed of multiple GET-POST-PUT operations. …

Integration Components Special in September

Our usual Feature Alerts are almost exclusively about new or improved features and functionalities of the elastic.io platform. Yet integration components are what makes any integration platform as a service a true magic wand in the hands of integrators. That is why we decided to dedicate one complete Feature Alert to new and updated integration components only. Below you will …

JSONata_With function 2

Last time we gave you a glimpse at JSONata – a new expression and transformation language that makes it possible even for non-coders to create rather complex workflow scenarios, when a certain message needs to be routed to only a specific system based on its content.

It’s been a while since we last issued a Feature Alert, and for a good reason. We have been working on a beautiful new feature that we actually announced quite some time ago.

New Integration Flow Designer

Last time I wrote that we were working on a huge update of how elastic.io looks and feels. I even used the words “big changes to the elastic.io interface”. And it’s happened. This month’s feature alert is exclusively about only one new feature, but oh boy, what a feature that is. Without further ado, please welcome: New Integration Flow Designer …

Why Use an External Integration Platform?

Just the other night I was having dinner with a friend of mine, who has little knowledge about the IT industry in general, let alone the “application integration” part. And so when I was trying to explain what kind of an animal iPaaS is, she asked me quite a justified question at some point, “Why would anyone buy a product …
