This manufacturer’s existing middleware infrastructure needed to be replaced with a scalable, supportable, and more robust solution.
While the current solution contained the technical functionalities required to support current needs, its scalability and throughput had been called into question.
eBase completed a full assessment to evaluate the organization’s integration requirements on a broad spectrum that covers both internal and external integrations.
While the efforts were focused mainly on identifying the characteristics required in a replacement solution for external integration (EDI/B2B), a key discovery was made with respect to how internal application integration was currently managed.
As a result of comprehensive assessment, eBase Solutions put forward a recommendation to replace the client’s existing middleware platform with a multi-function, enterprise grade, integration platform, providing a scalable, robust and secure solution.
Throughout this process, eBase had identified the following business drivers for this initiative:
- Improve throughput capacity (measured in hourly volume) of existing electronic partners.
- Gain IT organizational efficiencies through lowered total cost of ownership (TCO).
- Offer better support of trading partners’ requests for improved security protocols.
- Support planned future business advancements and industry expansions.
The client accepted the recommendation and awarded eBase with a contract to identify, implement and support the new integration platform.
