What are software integrations?
Software integrations are connections between systems and applications that enable information and data to be transferred and shared between different parties. The flow of information takes place through APIs (application programming interfaces).
With software integrations, users only need to input information once in a designated place because the API allows for that information to be transferred to other areas in the system and automatically get updated.
What are the types of software integration?
The four main types of software integration are star, horizontal, vertical, and common data format.
Star integration is the process of developing connections within all software subsystems. Its name comes from the fact that when all the systems are interconnected, its diagram looks like a star.
Depending on the number of systems that are being integrated, its links may also look like spaghetti. Consequently, this method is sometimes referred to as the spaghetti method.
This type of integration allows teams to reuse software functionalities. However, if new subsystems need to be added, organizations may have to spend a significant amount of time and money to perform the integration.
Horizontal integration is a method that establishes a system for communication. Its main feature is message transmission and message monitoring. It also provides services, such as data transformation and mapping. Additionally, horizontal integrations reduce the number of links for each subsystem. This allows for flexibility where teams can add, remove, or adjust a system without interrupting the rest of the components.
Horizontal software integration works well for businesses that have many large, disparate systems. It is also cost-efficient since integration expenses become less expensive as the system expands.
In contrast to horizontal integration, vertical integration is a short-term solution and is considered a fast and inexpensive option. With this method, a company develops functional entities for their software systems and vertically syncs them.
Vertical integrations provide many benefits, such as more control over business processes and maximized competitiveness. For retail manufacturers, it can also help streamline supply chain management, improve vendor communication, and reduce operating costs. However, vertical integrations create silos that make it difficult to scale software. This means that information is isolated within each system.
Common Data Format Integration
A common data format is an approach to software integration that allows businesses to avoid using an adapter when converting or transporting data. For this method to be effective, the data must be formatted in a way that will be accepted by the other system.
What are the benefits of software integrations?
There are several benefits of using software integrations, including:
- Easy access to accurate and up-to-date data all in one place
Integrating your software systems reduces the risk of inaccurate or conflicting data entering the system. Having one complete, reliable view has a great impact on your ability to make good business decisions. Integrating your software systems simplifies this process and reduces the amount of time and energy wasted going between different applications to enter or find data.
- Increased productivity
Integrating applications that use the same data sources will allow you to improve the productivity of your operations. This is particularly relevant for data that is entered multiple times into different software systems. With one point of data entry and no need to switch between different software applications, processing is simpler and quicker.
- Improved data security
Managing the security of your data within one unified system application is much easier than managing multiple data systems. By integrating the management, backup and administration tasks are simplified.
