What's an AppComm?


AppComms provide 'out of the box' integration for ANY application / database - with NO software development effort required - think 'codeless' integration.  AppComms are a metadata driven integration enabling a live/secure access to the data schema (i.e.; Salesforce.com web services, SAP's Remote Functional Call, SharePoint  ...). 


With 'out of the box' integration a business analyst or consultant type role can focus on rapidly delivering the discrete data integration requests that come from the Lines of Business.  Otherwise, if you have to integrate disparate data / applications the legacy approach of custom coding integration adapters (which can take fiscal quarters to complete) this will likely mean the Business 'idea' will never become a project and sit in the massive backlog of requests that IT receives each year.   


  • Eliminate - complexity of integrating enterprise data
  • Reduce - project timelines and IT backlog requests
  • Reuse - Once created for an application ... AppComms are available for any customer of that application
  • U.S. Job Creation - with the enterprise ready for integration Business savings will spur investment (jobs) and keep technical jobs (i.e.; business analysts, consultants...) job creating local versus offshoring.


Check out www.enterpriseenabler.com for more on AppComms.  The integration use cases are endless, so get on with it because with AppComms the Enterprise is integrated.  AppComms have been commercially available for about 7-years and in critical IT service in Fortune 500 Companies for 6-years.

If you have interest please respond.  Using Stone Bond's www.enterpriseenabler.com solution we want to create an AppComm (see below - different than software integration adapters) to enable bidirectional integration of Salesforce.com Cases and Microsoft TFS.  


Use Case:  To enable better collaboration between Sales, Product Management/Marketing, Tech Support and Software Development organizations that use Microsoft Team Foundation Server in software in development and Salesforce.com in Sales there is the need for immediate visibility of all defect issues and identifying which customers are affected.  We see the use of Salesforce Chatter to compliment this integration and improve the collaboration.  If you have a need for this use case please respond and that will help us prioritize.  The Salesforce.com AppComm exists today and the TFS AppComm would take about 2 weeks to create.


What's an AppComm?   Integrate ANY software application or database rapidly - custom adapters are DEAD!   Enterprise Enabler's (Agile Integration Software) has a patented technology to automate the discovery of ANY application or database data schema.  The data schema is save as metadata (AppComms).  This provides a simple way to create virtual relationships between disparate data sources for reporting, business intelligence, and data integration/migration (no staging databases).   With integration being simplified consultants / business analysts (instead of developers) are able to quickly define enterprise data integrations with a drag-and-drop GUI.  The resulting integration is ‘alive’ and aware of the presence of other AppComms.  So, each time an AppComm makes a connection to the source (i.e..; Salesforce.com, Oracle, SAP …) the AppComms will discover any changes to the data schema (i.e..; new custom field), so if the use case requirements change it takes only minutes (not fiscal quarters) to update the ‘virtual relationships’ between disparate data.
