Systems Integration

When you want to leverage technology up to the maximum extent, it is quite obvious to face the roadblock of system diversity. You think about the internal systems or external; it is impossible to achieve synergy without complex system integration. With Alterego, you are relieved from worries the hassles of managing complexities of it. We have a team of seasoned integration experts who can carry out the task in a systematic and structured manner. We take the responsibility of it end-to-end; starting from planning to system architecture design, and designing to testing, and deployment to maintenance. Our aim is to offer best in the niche system development, platform integration solutions, and program management skills. We perform perfect functional and testing services that take the system integration to incredibly high levels of perfection.

Systems Integration
What is System Integration (SI)?

System Integration or SI is the process of joining more than one systems or subsystems or components in such a way that they become a large unified system. The integrated system not only performs as a single entity, but also it achieves great synergy. Also, the system as a whole enjoys functionalities offered by the inherent systems or subsystems.It has been more than a decade when the concept of SI emerged. It has traversed a long way since the inception, and nowadays aggregation of several component subsystems is quite common across industries. Experts call it the modular way of building system structure. Since the diversity and versatility of SI platform are vivid, the integration team should possess a broad spectrum of skills and knowledge. When you assign the task to Alterego, rest assured that you have chosen the right team.

Types of System Integration
  • Horizontal integration:

    When you create a unique, common interface subsystem among an array of subsystems, it is called horizontal integration. Experts call it ESB or Enterprise Service Bus as well. The single common interface can be replaced with other by keeping the other systems unaffected.

  • Vertical integration:

    It is a quick method of integrating systems where a few vendors and developed are involved. In this arrangement, subsystems create a silo of functional entities because similar functionalities are added in a vertical manner. Though the arrangement is cost-effective in the beginning, it becomes expensive in a long run when you have to build new silos to accommodate additional functionalities.

  • Star integration:

    When each subsystem is connected to more than one subsystem, it creates a star structure. Experts call it a ‘spaghetti structure’ also because as the number of subsystems increase, it takes quite a complex shape of spaghetti.

  • Common Data Format:

    In this arrangement, systems use a common, format which is application independent. They provide a service to transform an application to the common application platform.

System Integration is not just Technology

    When you think about system integration, don’t remain confined to technology only. The scope expands far beyond it. In fact, it is about integrating business processes and workforce to leverage the technology up to the maximum extent. Team Alterego stands heads and shoulders above the competition with the profound understanding of core business issues that need to be addressed first. Architecture level enhancement comes after it. Since we bring a rich experience of managing integration projects for a variety of clients, it is fairly easy for us to help clients with the development of an excellent service-oriented architecture that makes use of a nicely integrated platform for information management and sharing among the stakeholders. We are capable of managing business processes, integrating platforms and solutions, and offering SOA advisory services.

What happens when you use diversified, disintegrated system?

    Why is so much noise about system integration in the market? Why can’t a business survive without is? Well, many research programs have been conducted so far to understand the correlation between system integration and organizational impact. The results are eye-opening. There have been severe implications of managing multiple, diversified systems.

  • Transferring process-related data from one system to other is tedious. Employees have to put extensive efforts for it.

  • Data inconsistency, missing data, and requirement of manual data verification at different levels are the operational issues. There are discrepancies in reports, data inconsistency, and duplication. Need to enter data manually or through offline import-export method.

  • Extensive efforts in data aggregation, Data mining, and data validation. Due to high human intervention, the system is error-prone. Get rid of all such operational hassles by calling Team Alterego to achieve top-quality, seamless system integration. We make sure that not only smooth system integration is achieved, but you achieve incredible system efficiency also. We help you in leveraging the technology up to the maximum extent. With our process expertise and a profound understanding of industry and business, system integration solutions enhance your business operations far beyond expectations.
