Liaison Extends Capabilities of Enterprise Application and B2B Integration Solutions with One-Click Cloud Connector and Open API Capability

Liaison Technologies, a global provider of secure cloud-based integration and data management services and solutions, announced today that its Electronic Commerce Server (ECS) 7.0 and Delta 6.0 will be released for general availability later this month. The ECS 7.0 release from Liaison will include a new Cloud Connector feature for simple one click extensibility to ECS, as well as enhanced security group settings and extended support for monitoring and onboarding partners. The Delta 6.0 release is optimized for newer operating systems, with additional productivity improvements for mapping and database testing. Both solutions support multibyte data and when used together provide a complete EAI solution, capable of coordinating the many diverse applications, databases, and e-commerce formats found across the enterprise.

Liaison’s new Cloud Connector enables companies to easily and quickly exchange data with trading partners and customers to improve last-mile integration that extends beyond the walls of their business. Version 7.0 also gives users SOAP-based API, allowing access to various business functions in ECS through data, as well as the power to add event rule handling to scheduled items, increase the visibility of event rules on output channels, and improve security by controlling access and viewing rights of individuals or groups.

Liaison’s Delta data translation tool remains one of the strongest and most cost-efficient solutions on the market. Delta 6.0 optimizes performance, improves support for database targets and large source XML files, and provides a more customizable user interface. The new version of Delta also makes translation easier by offering new features to complement the hundreds of already built-in functions and any-to-any mapping capabilities.

“Connectivity with trading partners is critical to doing business today, yet the combination of systems that exist both on-premise and in the cloud has become a real challenge from an integration perspective,” said Robert Fox, Liaison Technologies’ senior director of Software Development. “The investments we’re making in the new versions of ECS and Delta help businesses take their EAI environments to the next level in a seamless, secure, and scalable way. Our new Cloud Connector capability is breaking ground with its integration simplicity and the updates to Delta continue to set the bar in data mapping excellence.”

When married together, ECS 7.0 and Delta 6.0 offer companies a business decision engine, providing rich reporting, auditing, and alerts. By deploying the robust data communications suite, customers can now extend the value of their business applications and communicate effortlessly with their partners and clients.

More about ECS and Delta

ECS provides a powerful integration tool for all types of enterprise application integration projects, whether data is derived from EDI, XML, legacy applications or enterprise-wide distributed database systems. With support for a wide variety of data transfer protocols and standards, ECS moves transactional as well as real-time data across the enterprise and trading partner community, seamlessly connecting companies with customers, suppliers and back-end systems with minimal effort in one cohesive operation. While ECS can be used on its own, it is often paired with Liaison’s Delta data translator to provide complete enterprise application and business-to-business integration that lets organizations integrate between applications, implement Web services, and easily manage the communications and mapping components of all solutions in service.

ECS supports industry communications protocols, including S/MIME, AS1, AS2, AS3, FTP/s, SFTP, HTTP/s, JMS and SOAP/SwA, to move all types of data into, out of and across the enterprise. ECS can be used to connect directly with trading partners or through Liaison’s network and is available in three versions: ECS Lite, ECS Standard and ECS Enterprise. Additionally, Liaison’s ECS Gateway Server Edition complements the solution suite, providing enhanced security and protection settings through a simplified “two click” configuration process.

We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner. For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...
I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
