SKYVVA is often used in addition to the existing middleware to supplement the missing functionalities such as monitoring, alerting and error handling. In this way, SKYVVA ideally coexists with the existing infrastructure in the case of a Salesforce integration without having to expand the middleware.
THE APPROACH OF
The middleware on the market follows the generic approach of integrating a variety of systems and applications with each other. The special properties of the applications do not play a role here, as this approach only focuses on the pure technical connection. The subtleties and peculiarities of the applications to be integrated, such as Salesforce, are often ignored and lead to a non-performant and sometimes faulty connection of the systems. SKYVVA’s approach is different: it considers Salesforce as a special application, knows its characteristics and peculiarities, and above all takes into account the well-known Salesforce “Governor Limit” and counteracts it with adequate means.
BEST PRACTICE INTEGRATION
All middleware integrations use the standard Salesforce API (soap, rest). API's are generally excellent for fast and timely request & response scenarios. With our Connect solution we avoid an inherent architectural danger of so called "tight coupling" which can lead to a high resource consumption at the requesting client. If the load of the request is too high and unintentional using this type of tight coupling, it could lead to server overload (Salesforce) and eventually to a standstill of the client application.
Fields of application
Our connector extends the easy integration, which is based only on the synchronous Salesforce Standard API. This type of integration only supports CRUD operations and is therefore not sufficient and of low quality for an enterprise-class integration. Wherever it is technically possible and the middleware provides an ADK (Adapter Development Kit) for the development of native adapters, SKYVVA offers its own adapters such as for SAP-PI/PO, SAP-CPI, MuleSoft. For a middleware which does not provide an ADK, the functional expansion is realised via the optimised SKYVVA API.
