Specific tools for cost-efficient integration and EDI projects
When implementing a software package it is important to fully integrate the new application into the client's existing IT landscape. Agro-industrial companies also aim to restrict the workload of their administrative transactions to the greatest extent by setting up electronic data exchange with their main trading partners. In order to implement integration and EDI projects in a cost-efficient manner, Radar Automation has developed a set of interface tools to achieve this using a standardised method. These tools can be used for both nervous-system-like, real-time communication with process control systems and in more complex data exchange involving large quantities of data with ERP systems.
This is how the concept of Radar IO bus came about. This standardised interface makes it possible to exchange messages with ERP systems in an efficient and fully traceable manner. But the tools can also be used for integrations with other third-party software, legacy systems and to set up information flows between business partners for B2B projects.
The IO-bus is based on the commonly known ETL principle, and has a specific validation and error treatment module for all essential types of data in the corresponding Radar Software packages so that any anomalies can be dealt with by end users.
Radar Automation’s customer base includes many organisations who use multiple production sites or decentralised services such as separate purchase and trade organisations.
The Radar Automation Distribution Framework orchestrates these often complex data flows between different locations. It is possible to work in a star or point-to-point configuration as well as with unidirectional or bidirectional data exchange. The framework is implemented in the core of a data base so that the data flows can operate smoothly (without disrupting online transactions) and be set up incredibly easily and in line with specific requirements.
