Back-office integration with large databases made easy
No-code makes back-office integration with large databases easy. Our WEM expert Vincent Martini will explain some cool examples of different integrations with large and well known databases, such as bol.com and Schiphol.
We love to brag about the integration features in our no-code development platform WEM. Discover how to apply our integration features during your application development.
Nowadays every system needs to be able to integrate with back-office systems that include large databases. However, it’s not always possible, and if it is, it’s hard, takes forever and is probably expensive. So you’d rather not and keep working the way your system dictates your process flow. Very inconvenient for your business process. Luckily, there is WEM. Our no-code development platform enables basically any integration with large databases, in and out. The only thing you need is for the other system to allow exposing its data using for example REST, SOAP or OData.
Integration examples with large databases
More and more open data is provided by enterprises in the Netherlands. Vincent picked a selection, which will serve as examples of back office data, to show you what you can do with it:
– RDW provides all kinds of information about your car via a REST service
– Schiphol publicly offers all flight departure and arrival information via a REST service
– Bol.com provides all its web shop data as a REST service
– Postal code information via a SOAP service
– NS not yet available, but soon to follow is an integration with all NS information
RDW is a public service provider in the mobility chain and provides vehicle information via a REST web service. Give a license plate number and the web service spits out data about the respective vehicle. Here you see how the flowchart looks like in WEM:
The Schiphol database is another REST web service example Vincent used in his application. This web service was recently made available by Schiphol and gives information on departure flights and arrival flights. This is how easy the flowchart for Schiphol looks like in his WEM application:
Just map the information you want to use to the right fields in your project:
4 integrations in no-time
Within only 2 days, Vincent integrated a WEM application with 4 major databases, whereby he spent the majority of the time on layout and displaying the information as desired. I’m sure you’re already thinking of a process you want to digitalize, which is not possible in your current software. WEM helps you to bring your business process to a web application that easily integrates with your back-office, without needing to adjust your current software, data and business processes.
