SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite – Building blocks

BIS Integration Server

BIS Integration Server – Save costs with process automation

The BIS Integration Server uses the BIS Process Engine and works in accordance with the BPEL standard .The BIS Channel Engine is an in-memory variant of the BIS Process Engine. Both together execute all integration processes, which are fundamental to any digital integration scenarios (MFT-, B2B-, API-, IoT-, E-Invoicing, ERP-integration).

The BIS Adapter Engine ensures secure and reliable exchange of messages and files as well as seamless application integration with a large number of protocol adapters.

The Business Integration Converter (BIC) is a high-performance Any-to-Any conversion which masters all data mapping requirements (testing, splitting, merging, converting).

BIS Information Server

BIS Information Server – Obtain information for decisions

BIS Information Server is the data storage of the platform. With big data methods, relevant business intelligence can be done to structure the flood of data generated by the digitalized processes. This is the foundation to obtain information for business decisions out of the flood of data.

A few examples:

  • Track & Trace from B2B-documents => SLA compliance for supplier evaluation
  • E-Invoicing: Central control of invoicing processes => ideal starting point for business analysis
  • API usage data => foundation to monetarize API based traffic
  • Machine data from the shop floor => only via intelligent aggregation events can be triggered towards the enterprise applications

BIS FileExchange Server

BIS FileExchange Server – Collaborate more efficiently via file exchange

The BIS FileExchange Server is the foundation for interactive Managed File Transfer. It offers secure data rooms and mailboxes which can be shared with other user(s)/group(s). There are no file size limits. Access to the server occurs per web service API, which offer functions for the acceleration of data transfer (for example, compression and "parallel TCP"). Access per FTP/S and SFTP is supported across gateways. The integrated web application permits interactive/ad hoc access.

BIS Portal Server

BIS Portal Server – Involve departments and business partners via tailored, modern GUIs

All web interfaces are based on the BIS Portal Server. The portal application SDK ensures the consistency of the look & feel. The cloud-compliant user management also supports the administration of external users which is a prerequisite for state-of-the-art Business Community Management and Self-Service applications for the business units.

BIS Developer Studio

BIS Developer Studio – Create any integration scenario yourself

The BIS Developer Studio is the Business Integration Suite development environment. It is based on the open source Eclipse platform and contains graphic tools (plug ins) for process, mapping and API design .Created scenarios(solutions)can be transferred and activated (Hot Deployment) from the Developer Studio into the runtime environment without interruption of operations .Alternatively you can also deploy offline .The Integration into Build Automation systems (BIS Deployment REST API) is also supported for the advanced developer. Plug ins for the integration of common source code version management systems (CVS, SVN, GIT/GITHub) are available for source code management.

BIS Landscape Manager

BIS Landscape Manager – Automate software updates, gain security

The BIS Landscape Manager manages BIS system landscapes and automates installation and maintenance. This especially pays off when a BIS environment is distributed across several nodes, for example to achieve greater availability and/or higher performance or when a separate environment is required for development, testing and production.

The BIS Landscape Manager automatically downloads new software versions from the SEEBURGER Cloud and is able to automatically install these (upon request and for systems with Active/Active-Setup) on all nodes involved during an update process without additional user intervention and without downtime.

BIS Secure Proxy

BIS Secure Proxy – Securely establish connections over the internet

BIS Secure Proxy connects communication adapters and portal applications from the Business Integration Suite with the Internet.

Using the “fence” component, which is deployed in the DMZ (demilitarized zone), secure communication channels are provided. Time consuming and frequent changes in the firewall configuration, for example upon activation of new business partners, are avoided.

BIS Link

BIS Link – Create a connection at any time

BIS Link bridges the gap, if endpoints must be equipped with a communication device in a B2B, EAI, IoT or MFT scenario. The preconfigured Java application can also be efficiently distributed to many hundreds of end points. With the BIS Link Manager application, BIS Link is preconfigured, deployed, monitored and updated when needed. Additional data conversion is available with the BIS Link PLUS variant.
