Bpm'online Integration Technology

Choose your own way to integrate with the bpm'online platform:

  • Web services
  • .Net managed assemblies
  • COM
  • DLL
  • Triggers, stored procedures, transit files

Every company with a complex IT infrastructure strives to build an integrated informational environment. The challenge is to coordinate data exchange between applications that support separate processes, use different platforms and employ different methods to store data.

The bpm'online solution can provide a comprehensive integrated platform that manages and ties together disparate applications to provide an entire enterprise solution. There are several ways how to tie together disparate applications into an integrated whole.

Web Services

This approach significantly simplifies and accelerates data exchange. The ability to support open standards (SOAP, WSDL) and the extensive application of web services will enable integration of current scattered solutions into one enterprise environment. Bpm'online platform sends requests to third-party applications to receive data, and allows these applications to start its own web services.

.Net Managed Assemblies

.Net Managed Assemblies is the best way to link applications based on .Net. If applications have a .Net layer, the bpm'online enables the execution of any segment of a process.

COM

COM technology facilitates application integration in order to build a platform for any collaborative work. Applications that are built on this technology are widely used, and as such, it is a popular way to exchange data by using COM-objects. Given its wide popularity at the moment, it is clear the COM lifecycle has yet to peak and thus will remain a reliable platform for integration for years to come.

DLL

In many cases it may be optimal to use DLL to seamlessly integrate bpm'online with some third-party applications. When employed, this integration technology requires that a developer link the bpm'online library with a third-party application and obtains access to the functions from its library.

Triggers, Stored Procedures, Transit Files

The most widely used integration approaches are based on applying triggers, stored procedures and transit files. The main benefits of these approaches are simplicity, high reliability and low bandwidth usage.
