How is simplifying data integration

Congratulations you’re a successful cloud solution provider (CSP)!

You’ve worked hard to establish a successful CSP business. You know you’re playing in the right market–heck, cloud services are skyrocketing! But growth means ever-more-complex account and billing management–and you need to streamline your operation, toward full business integration.

A fully integrated CSP cloud business

You probably already know that–in the space of a few days–with the platform you can create an environment that seamlessly provides all the components needed to run a successful Microsoft-based cloud business… that’s having your cake. But did you know that we can also provide, and train you on, all the data integration tools you’ll need to connect your existing systems to it… that’s having your cake and eating it too.

We’re all busy

We’ve all been there: some fantastic tool flashes across our screen… it seems to do everything we want… “And, boy, would that make life easier! But, wait… I’m working flat out… and my existing systems aren’t perfect, but they work… so when I get a moment, I’ll…”

Understanding your world

At, we know what it’s like to be a CSP business: we haven’t just developed an award-winning platform: we have to use it too–as a leading CSP business in our regional market in Greece. Putting it another way: “We understand your world.”

Easily integrate your existing systems with our platform

We’ve all heard of them… “easy to integrate tools” – but the reality of integration methods is often a bit different than the marketing pitch. That’s why we kept three things in mind when we designed our integration framework: simplicity, simplicity… and simplicity.

We want you to be able to connect your existing systems to our platform: whether it’s accounting software, billing and ticketing, product catalogues, enterprise resource planning (ERP) integration, or CRM.

With two straightforward options, you’ll be able to achieve full process integration, creating seamless workflows for both your customers and your employees. You can choose between already-available, pre-built, Application programming interface (API) bridges or, if you prefer, work directly with the platform’s set of APIs.

How our pre-built integrations work

Our catalogue of pre-built integrations lets you connect a broad range of cutting-edge applications from leading vendors. As long as your application supports RESTful API, you can integrate it.

And there’s no development effort involved: you can define all the data-synchronisation scenarios using a simple JSON document that uses the OpenAPI-Specification (v3) Standard. JSON–JavaScript Object Notation–is an easy and popular way to exchange data, used by both Twitter and Facebook. All you have to do is register a new connector, and we’ll provide you with a pre-filled sample JSON Specification. You can then follow our guidelines to define the authentication, API paths, and object schemas of the third-party system API, along with the transformation schemas.

Once you’re up and running, our own queue mechanism syncs your data automatically. Its intelligent features ensure that all too common sync glitches can’t stop the operation–and that it goes back, and keeps trying, until the whole sync is successful.

And that’s it: full software integration–a veritable piece of cake.
