Direct Integration

Making it easier for systems to talk to each other

Problem

System integrators want to be able to read and write data to databases. Firewalls are in the way and have resulted in increased software complexity.

Network Engineers are reluctant to grant that access:

  • Firewall exceptions are too risky
    What if it’s misconfigured and let’s in the wrong traffic? What if the integration communication isn’t properly encrypted?

Workarounds

Prevailing wisdom chooses middleware as the solution. If you step back and consider the cost, it’s a workaround at best.

Prevailing wisdom chooses middleware as the solution.

Consider the cost:

  • Development Expense
    More coding with more standards and components; More functional testing, security testing, and technical debt.
  • Impaired business intelligence
    Fewer integrations can be completed, delivered later than expected, and with reduced scope.
  • Worse security
    Scattered documentation, of different types of integrations in use, and complex code that might have security bugs.

Solution

Dull Micronetworking™ creates direct secure connections to databases. Approvals are managed, encryption is consistent, and integrations can be monitored and audited.

Benefits

  • Simpler Integrations
    With discoverable data, structure, and the use of off-the-shelf integration tools.
  • Enhanced business intelligence
    Actionable information in one place, enabling deeper insights for customer support and business improvement.
  • Better security
    Consistently enforced encryption and logging, and many optional add-ons.
