What is i-Con
i-Con is an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) that uses Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) to provide agility and flexibility to enable communication between software components.
Your business has probably been using the same one for years, but it is probably now time to replace it. I-Con is an ESB that can facilitate communication between a wide variety of communication formats and protocols. Its component nature allows for scalability and a speedy turnaround time when implemented. This means that no matter how big or small your business is, you can now afford to implement a high-end middleware application and data integration solution that will keep your business moving forward no matter how fast it grows in the future.
Reasons why you need i-Con
- You want to implement new services but are limited by your current systems and applications.
- Redeveloping applications to enable them to integrate with new applications is cost-prohibitive.
- Scalability. Growth happens, you can’t afford to outlay capital every time your business grows.
- Flexibility. Your solution needs the ability to change as the market changes.
- Cost. i-Con’s component nature, scalability, flexibility, and speed of turnaround means that you only pay for what you need, when you need it and you don’t have to pay for months of development and implementation.
- We are Experts!
Utilising event driven architecture, i-Con can be easily integrated into both simple and complex systems. i-Con uses components that each perform specific functions to ensure an efficient flow of information. This component nature means that you can use only what you need when you need it.
i-Con is a robust platform that uses purpose built components to achieve application integration. This component nature means that you can add as many components as you need to achieve your goals, depending on demand you may need to start off small and grow your solution as demand increases. The component nature also ensures a speedy turn-around when you want to add new components into the existing system.
i-Con’s components contain collections of business rules which take a fraction of the time to implement as it would take to code the solutions from scratch. This means, less needs to be spent on development and implementation, and you only use what you need when you need it. When implementing i-Con you can start off small and expand your integrated applications as and when the need arises. You don’t pay for what you don’t need.
What is Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)
SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) is a software design pattern whereby services are provided to different software components, via a communication protocol over a network, by application components.
SOA allows for a wide range of services and functions to be created, or made available to the user, by the integration and ad hoc joining of disparate systems via simple interfaces that abstract the underlying complexity of the operations.
What is an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB)
An ESB is the service that implements a communication system between software applications that need to interact with one another within a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). The idea behind an ESB is that it promotes flexibility and agility to the communication between applications.
i-Con – integration framework
i-Con is different to other integration solutions. It has a component based architecture that ensures our ability to provide a speedy and cost effective turn around on the implementation of a fully integrated data system.
i-Con is comprised of many standard interface service solutions. Including, but not limited to:
ISO8583, TCP\IP sockets, SSL, HTTPS, Routing, Switching, TCS, OFS Messaging, FCUBS Integration Gateways, MSMQ, MQ Series, STP, RTGS, OTP and Email notifications[Read More]
Once-off movement of data, MS SQL, Oracle, MySQL, UniVerse and other multi-Value databases, Flat Files[Read More]
All of our interfaces are easily constructed and modified via a Visual Interface Builder. Our many services, and the ease with which we can construct and modify our interfaces, means that we (and you) do not have to re-invent the wheel when it comes to constructing a flexible, scalable, and robust, integrated system of your existing and future applications. This means that you do not have to re-develop legacy applications but rather get to leverage them, and take advantage of new technology and applications as they are developed.
Allowing us to implement the i-Con integration platform in your business means that when you spend money developing new applications not only will we be there to make sure it integrates with the old, but one day when it becomes old we will be there to ensure that it integrates smoothly with the new.Contact UsDownload Product Brochure
