Build it Right. The First Time.
Compatibility between systems is one of the most important issues for almost any organization. Today, seamless integration is no more an added-value. It is a must.
Our Integration Engagement Model is designed to help customers plan complex initiatives for data integration projects that might start as synchronizing between databases and end as applications consolidation. It is designed to address client-specific needs and get customers off to the right start in terms of data architecture, system setup, administrative processes and compliance. The engagement includes needs assessment and recommendations for appropriate strategies in these areas, to ensure important structures are in place before design and development begin.
Our partners and clients reduce their risk of project delays and failures by engaging ProgressSoft Professional Services for Integration consulting and implementation. With our technical expertise and vast resources, we significantly improve the probability of implementation success for data integration initiatives.
Our practice serves a large client base, exposing us to a broad variety of business issues and technical architectures. Our methodology, knowledgebase and consultants bring this broad experience to your project.
To sum up, our consultants recognize that data integration projects are not static. We understand that your solution will evolve with your business, with new releases introduced as often as every quarter. Thus, it's imperative that we take the time to learn, as well as deliver. As we close each engagement, we take time to ensure your team has the knowledge and skills to maintain and use your solution.
Integration Services Engagement Model
ProgressSoft professional services deliver a wide variety of integration solutions using our engagement model as explained hereunder:
Before designing any data integration solution, ProgressSoft works closely with each client to develop an optimum integration blueprint that satisfies their unique needs. We start by completely analyzing business requirements to ensure any integration solution we recommend perfectly matches your needs, whether it involves new applications that require integration with existing systems, or multiple data sources that must be integrated to improve business processing.
While you might add new business activities, we will always be ready to provide different means to enhance information access capabilities and streamline the flow of current operations through seamless integration techniques based on various technologies.
ProgressSoft also takes your existing IT infrastructure into account. We are sensitive to your need for processing different types of data in different cycles, and not integrating data until it is ready to be used. We investigate in advance if your legacy software contains any interfacing capabilities as it ensures minimum manpower needs and higher reliability, not to mention cost efficiency.
ProgressSoft professional services team does not stop with the architectural design of best-practice integration solutions. Before we implement a new solution into your production environment, we bring all the components of your integration solution together in our unique interoperability lab to ensure we meet all goals established in the architectural phase. Only then we implement the new integrated solution into your existing infrastructure. To ensure that the integration goes smoothly, the engineers responsible for testing the solution in our lab will integrate the solution on production environment.
ProgressSoft ensures optimization of your data integration on several levels. If you need to improve business performance by exploiting information trapped in contrasting functional systems, we can help. Our expert engineers can eliminate isolated data silos by processing, translating, presenting and exchanging information across them, even when they involve totally different data formats, servers, operating systems and application software.
We also ensure that your integration solutions are optimized so they can be sustained - either by your IT group or by our professional services team.
ProgressSoft professional services team provides comprehensive support throughout the client engagement, from architecting a data integration solution to summing up and optimization.
We are highly knowledgeable about how integration solutions work in a wide variety of production environments and can provide clients with advanced project management skills. ProgressSoft routinely manages huge and mission-critical engagements, ensuring at all times that our solutions meet time and budget constraints, as well as business and technical requirements.
At the end of an engagement, we collaborate with our client's IT staff to ensure full knowledge transfer, supported by excellent and comprehensive documentation. Post-engagement, we remain fully available on a consulting basis, whether to answer routine questions or advise on future integration upgrades and updates.
