What is Klevr Integration Hub?
Klevr Integration Hub is a completely cloud-based service based on Microsoft’s Integration best practices and our experience implementing hundreds of business-critical integrations.
Suits clients with low volume, two-system integration requirements, through to high-volume, multi-system, enterprise level integration needs.
Provides support for common integration endpoint types out-of-the-box to allow rapid and inexpensive development.
Automates the build and deployment of native Azure services (via Azure DevOps) so there is no operational lock-in to a proprietary integration technology framework.
Can be hosted by the Walkerscott as a managed service or the client in their Azure tenancy.
Klevr Integration Hub Process
We find clients can reduce their integration build time/costs by up to 75% compared with developing integration “by hand” using Azure iPaaS services
- All integrations are composed of small “workflow definitions” which are joined via a pub/sub model.
- Inbound workflows;
- Transform workflows;
- Routing workflows;
- Outbound workflows.
- These workflows are easily joined together to make complex integration requirements quick and easy to build.
- What’s more, workflows are not “hand written” – every workflow type has a small, simple to use workflow definition file.
- So, to create an integration we:
- Define the overall integration (inbound workflow, any transform and routing required, and the outbound workflow).
- Create the small definition files needed – anywhere from two to a dozen or so (for really, really complex integrations).
- Commit the definition files to Azure DevOps.
- And that’s it! The Klevr Integration Hub deployment system deploys everything needed – the infrastructure and the integration, ready to go.
Klevr Integration Hub enforces the implementation of integration best practices and automates the build and deployment of native Azure services (via Azure DevOps) so there is no operational lock-in to a proprietary integration technology framework.
The native Azure services that are automatically built and deployed include, but are not limited to:
- API Management
- Logic App Connectors and Workflows
- Function Apps and App Service Plans
- Service Bus
- Event Grid Subscriptions
- Blob Storage
- Application Insights and Alerts
Integration best practices incorporated through common patterns, libraries and templates
Solid Development Roadmap
Microsoft continual investment in Azure iPaaS services
Fully automated deployments (infrastructure and integration code) via Azure DevOps
Choice of connectors
Access to hundreds of OOTB Azure Logic App connectors, for example:
- Dataverse, Business Central, Salesforce
- Azure Services
- SQL Server, Datalake
- S/FTP, Blob, Email
- AWS S3
Diverse workflow support
Persistent data storage
Caching, lookups, transforms etc.
Loosely Coupled Integrations
Integrations are loosely coupled, which means:
- they are resilient to change/outages and volume overload
- systems don’t need to be aware of each other
Integration Management Dashboard
Extensive management dashboard and robust alerting to rapidly surface integration issues
Distributed Message Tracing
Large File Support
e.g. splitting, merging
Payload splitting to increase parallelism + token based locking to reduce parallelism
API rate limiting, throttling, whitelisting, fixed IP options
API Auth support for HTTP Basic, OAuth2, and Custom
Option for a developer portal with API documentation and self service API token management
