A modern data exchange and integration infrastructure needs to be nimble and flexible enough to quickly accommodate changing partner requirements, emerging government regulations and compliance mandates, and new market conditions including globalization and supplier community automation. While organizations typically use several systems to support multiple document standards and protocols, as well as a large number of systems and data formats, the result is often higher maintenance costs, increased complexity, and loss of control due to a lack of integration. Multiple systems and solution redundancy can also lead to decreased efficiencies, higher security risks and loss of data integrity.

Axway Integrator helps IT organizations to build, manage and optimize integration platforms that solve these challenges. In addition, Axway Integrator provides a logical central point through which data flows are integrated, secured, controlled and monitored. Axway Integrator makes it easy to add and change systems and data, and provides end-to-end visibility into infrastructures and data flows.

Core Functionality

Axway Integrator manages simple and complex integration processes, and helps IT organizations to design, execute, and monitor integration processes that include transformation of content, protocol mediation and the ability to support files of any size, messages and APIs. It can rapidly adapt to any file type in any format, new data being incorporated from inside and outside the organization, and industry- and company-specific regulations and requirements. Using Axway Integrator, real-time, scalable core processing services for quick data integration can be designed and implemented as complex processes regardless of the data source . 

Message Services

Axway Integrator supports the following typical message handling services:

  • Integration with back-end applications regardless of type or origin
  • Direct connectivity using standard protocols (FTP, HTTP, etc.)
  • Classification, including the determination and details of the data being processed, using standards such as XML, X12 or any custom parameters. This guides the action that needs to be applied. Message processing, including:
    • Syntax and semantics control
    • Enrichment, including database and Web services calls
    • Applying any-to-any transformation
    • Splitting the received data into multiple sub-messages
    • Creating the acknowledgements for successful or failed operations
    • Enveloping or grouping messages retrieved from multiple sources
    • Routing messages to the appropriate destination
  • Message handling that extends beyond core operations:
    • Security operation for signing, verification or encryption
    • Request for additional information about the data or partner
    • Reject message and send back to a different application for re-processing
    • Perform custom processing using your own Java and/or C development
    • Generate notifications for monitoring purposes

Integration Design

Because an interaction can involve more than just sending data, Integrator includes a design and development environment for writing code, scripts and programs, and designing maps, processes, and workflow schematics.

To build complex interactions and integrations, you can:

  • Define the integration process and execution steps between partners applications or systems. Messaging services may be applied at any step, and tasked to perform additional processing of the exchanged data.
  • Using Axway ProcessManager, facilitate the orchestration process for proper execution of automated and human interactions with these activities over time.

Map Development

Integrator’s map development function performs data transformation, payload parsing for visibility, content-based routing, data validation and data enrichment, and can be expressed in various languages, enabling an organization to maintain current assets (Axway Data Modeling Language, Axway DataMapper, TFL, TF-XSL). Maps also transform, validate or route data received by Integrator. Design features include: ƒƒ

  • Map development environment for distributed work teams ƒƒ
  • Creation and editing of business document formats ƒƒ
  • Map simulation on development environment with Mapping Services

Custom formats, protocols and integration processes

Integrator enables you to manage, design, execute and monitor complex integration processes that include: ƒƒ

  • Transformation of data through a sequence of maps, custom stages, and pre-built stage such as detectors, splitters, and envelopers, with native support for many formats, including COBOL, XML, in-house, etc. ƒƒ
  • Protocol mediation with back-end systems using PeSIT, JMS, JDBC, HTTP, etc. ƒƒ
  • Files of any size, any message type, and APIs

Vertical solutions

Axway Integrator can provide transformation capabilities for:

  • ƒAxway Financial Integration: Control and format mapping of financial data
  • Axway Accounting Integration Suite: Extract, enrich, or normalize input data

Integration with other Axway Products

In concert with other Axway products, Axway Integrator can provide end-to-end management and oversight of complex and intricate data flows and workflows.

  • Axway SecureTransport provides multi-protocol secured file transfer and routing, and Axway SecureTransport Edge enables files to be deployed in the DMZ to provide secure DMZ services to the SecureTransport environment.
