Begin your journey to seamless application integration

Every organisation has multiple business applications including HR, Payroll, Pension, Finance, Manufacturing, Warehousing etc., and having best of breed applications managing an organisation is a good thing as no one application can do everything well, whatever the vendor says. 

Application integration is all about the automated integration of these applications to ensure they all behave like a single application, and there are no manual tasks and no double data entry.

As a Microsoft Partner and specialists in application Integration, we help clients solve enterprise system integration with BizTalk Server for on-premises and data centre hosted systems, Azure Integration Services for cloud, or a combination of both for hybrid.

What are the benefits of application integration?

Benefits of application integration services include:

  • Increased collaboration: Integrating applications means different departments can collaborate more easily, streamlining processes throughout the organisation
  • Process automation: Application integration allows you to build workflows that work automatically, and provide a single place to monitor them
  • Easy-to-use IT structures: Having several applications running separately can create more complex IT frameworks; integrating them provides a simpler IT solution for you to work with
  • Spot new opportunities: Working from a single interface makes it easier to identify trends and opportunities
  • Increased visibility: Integrating applications makes managing data easier, and gives you more visibility across the whole organisation
  • Reduce costs: Running applications separately can be expensive; by integrating them into one system, you’ll spend less time and money with maintenance

Application Integration Services

Transparity Integration services bring your business processes together, so they are cohesive, consistent and scalable. Our experience in this field assures you have the expertise for correct implementation. System integration remains a development activity, requiring expert engineers. i.e. it is not simply a configuration exercise.

Create an Efficient Operating Environment with App Integration Services

The digital transformation era has definitively been upon us for some time; it’s no longer a promise that’s “on its way” or “forthcoming” but a reality reshaping the business landscape. At the core of this transformation is application integration. For enterprises operating within the Microsoft ecosystem, the subject takes on amplified significance — of course, you’re likely acquainted with its merits, but have you operationalised it effectively?  

In this whitepaper, anticipate an enriched discussion replete with the knowledge we’ve gained from case studies, empirical data and tactical insights. Prepare to transition from a theoretical grasp of application integration to a comprehensive, actionable strategy — designed to equip you not only with a better understanding but also a roadmap to implementation. 

Microsoft Integration Technology

We can help you to seamlessly integrate your apps, data and processes across your enterprise using Azure Integration Services and/or BizTalk Server.

BizTalk Server was introduced in 2002 and for almost 20 years it has been the foundation of systems integration for the Microsoft Platform and is still widely used by Fortune 500 companies and other organisations of all sizes.

However, the future of systems integration, as with software development generally, clearly lies in the cloud, and BizTalk Server will eventually be replaced by Azure Integration Services, which contains the same features in a modern cloud environment.

Transparity recommends using Azure Integration Services for all new systems integration projects. We also have experience in migrating applications from BizTalk Server to Azure Integration Services, and so can assist with this as required.

App Integration Customer Stories

A data warehouse was built to enable Attivo to look at client and income trends over time and combine Intelliflo data sources with data feeds from other systems.

The integration platform solved the technical requirements in an enterprise-grade, fault-tolerant manner and in doing so, improved the operational processes relating to member sign up.

United living needed to migrate data from three legacy systems that contained all their construction-related drawings and documents into a single new system.


What is application integration?

Application integration is a process that enables independently designed applications to work together, sharing data and functionalities.

What are the objectives of application integration?

The main aims of application integration are to help applications run cohesively, giving decision-makers a wider view of the organisation and increasing collaboration between departments. When applications don’t communicate with one another, they create data solos that harm efficiency, scalability, and transparency. Application integration helps organisations overcome these challenges.

How do I choose an application integration solution?

When looking for an application integration solution, there are a few things to consider:

  • What it’s like to work with: You want your solution to be simple to work with
  • Who will use it at the company: Consider who in the organisation will be using the solution – the more that can use it well, the better suited you’ll be
  • How you can use it to overcome challenges: Look for a solution that you can use to overcome both current challenges and potential future challenges
  • How flexible it is: You want software that’s compatible with various applications
  • The application integration service provider: Make sure you find an expert company that’ll offer support and maintenance throughout the process
