System integration is the process of linking together different computing systems and software applications physically or functionally. These skills are in increasing demand as more organizations look to link cloud computing platforms to traditional systems.
System integrators like Marjau Systems bring together complex systems using a variety of techniques such as computer networking, enterprise application integration, business process management and manual programming. A good system integrator creates exceptional value by developing system capabilities previously unforeseen.
In the defense industry system integration is growing in importance as defense systems need to become more connected. The same can be said for the healthcare industry as an ever increasing number of complex systems must be integrated to increase operational efficiency. The level of information needed by organizations and the relevance of this information is so variable that it’s become necessary to integrate multiple disparate systems into a cohesive system.
The team at Marjau Systems utilizes a breadth of experience across multiple skill sets including the following:
- Data Exchange
- Software Interface
Data exchange technology enables data transfer between multiple applications. This capability allows data to be linked from one application to another. Data exchange will increase operational efficiency be because updating data in one area can automatically update that same value in another area.
Without a properly designed data exchange a data transfer can become very time consuming and costly.
Often a data exchange is used to enable a custom developed software application to control an off the shelf application. A properly designed data exchange enables a higher level of functionality across multiple industries including healthcare and defense. Regularly a unique capability is developed that has benefits well beyond the initial data transfer function.
A software interface is a point of interaction between components at the hardware and software levels. An interface allows a given component to function independently while other interface components are functioning.
The types of access that interfaces provide between software components can include: constants, data types, types of procedures, exception specifications and method signatures. In some instances, it may be useful to define public variables as part of the interface. It often also specifies the functionality of those procedures and methods, either by comments or (in some experimental languages) by formal logical assertions and preconditions.
If not design properly a software interface will have stability problems that can negatively impact your organizations procedures.Â In cases where every interface interacts with sensitive data a problem can be disastrous.
The team at Marjau Systems focuses their efforts on developing a solution for your unique need that empowers your people and your business.
