In a perfect world, a single system would be developed fully customized for all of an organisation's needs and operations. Some systems even try to achieve this with varying levels of success but typically at a high financial cost and high rates of failure. In most cases, organisations have several separate systems each responsible for their own functions (e.g. a human resource system, an accounting system, a helpdesk system, a custom information system). Each system typically provides value to the organisation but not as much as with a fully unified and integrated system as depicted below (e.g. online company website capable of showing customer invoices from accounting system, school website displaying student portfolio with grades and calendar of activities from the student information system, hospital website offering a portal for patients with doctor's instructions.)
This is where systems engineering and integration comes into play. We can help you unify your systems therefore enabling more value then the sum of them all together.
We offer more than your generic popular Content Management System (CMS) which is merely a collection of articles (e.g. web pages) organised hierarchically (e.g. in categories). Custom software development will be necessary and a generic CMS is not the best tool.
Unifying systems is typically done using the external application's API. On the web one of the most common one is known as RESTful API. We can help you consume data from all your systems or build missing APIs to achieve this.
We can also simply connect to external data sources (e.g. a database) and consume data directly. This can sometimes be the most straight forward approach (e.g. older legacy systems without existing API.)
We support the following integration technologies and data sources (e.i. framework, libraries). We may be able to support others as well but this would need to be discussed with client.
