Enterprises Achieve Real-Time Application Integration with Kourier Integrator
Kore Technologies, a leading provider of enterprise integration and eCommerce software announced Kourier Integrator Release 4.2, the latest version of its award-winning enterprise integration and data management suite. The new release includes significant enhancements to the Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) and Extract Transform Load (ETL) capabilities of the product. The major enhancement to the EAI aspect of the product includes a framework for creating bi-directional application programming interfaces (APIs) using REST-based principles. Developers can use the new framework to build APIs that provide secure, real-time access to MultiValue data from external applications such as customer relationship management, forecasting and pricing optimization.
"Many of our clients are using third-party applications, such as Salesforce.com, to supplement their main ERP system. They needed a better way to integrate these systems in real-time. So we focused our efforts into designing and creating a REST-based framework that gives them an easy way to build secure Web Services that enable full integration with these systems," said Mark Dobransky, co-founder and managing partner of Kore.
Release 4.2 also strengthens Kourier's ETL capabilities for creating an enterprise data warehouse from multiple disparate data sources. Microsoft SQL Server 2014 is now supported plus architectural improvements to Kourier and its maintenance-free SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) packages have resulted in the ability to process data up to twenty times faster than previous releases when updating the data warehouse. The new release also includes the ability to create Point-in-Time historical snapshots within a data warehouse, which has been optimized to use minimal database resources. Decision makers and business analysts can now study historical trends more easily and make data-driven decisions using the most accurate current and historical information that is available.
