The TechStone Approach
Our approach at TechStone is pretty simple. We provide the best solutions to solve the most important business problems our clients face today. That’s why we partner with Boomi. TechStone provides small and small and specialized consulting teams that implement Boomi iPaaS to the satisfaction of our clients.
Our Integration Practice provides the following:
APIs are the tools that let you easily expose your unique data and services in web apps, mobile apps and other connected devices. They have become the standard way of connecting applications, data and devices, providing services directly to partners and creating new models for doing business.
webMethods API Gateway provides security and peace of mind in this API-connected world. webMethods API Gateway enables you to securely expose your APIs to third-party developers, partners and other consumers for use in web, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) applications. With webMethods API Gateway you can easily create APIs, define Service Level Agreement (SLA) policies, and seamlessly publish your APIs to webMethods API Portal.
• Secure your APIs from malicious external attacks
• Eliminate threats from specific IP addresses and mobile devices
• Reduce or eliminate the need for unnecessary holes in your firewall
• Ensure API access is limited to authorized and authenticated consumers
• Change protocols, message formats or service locations—without impacting consumer-provider relationships
• Make the same underlying services available to new applications or APIs over a different protocol or security standard—without costly recoding
• Collect API usage data for monetization and external billing solutions
• Provide the same quality of service to external and internal developers and consumers
• Improve customer experience across channels and touchpoints
Accelerate Your Business with webMethods.io B2B
B2B exchanges were once dominated by eStandards transactions-EDIFACT, ANSI X12, RosettaNet, and HL7 all passed through costly value networks (VANS). Moving forward, tech savvy B2B shops will use API’s to complete these exchanges.
Chances are your trading partners are already using API’s instead of legacy B2B methods.
According to Gartner, ‘Over 50% of B2B transactions will be performed through real-time API versus by traditional B2B approaches by 2023.’
Trends Driving B2B Integration to the Cloud
Cost Reduction: Companies want to reduce the infrastructure, maintenance and personnel costs
Pay-As-You-Grow: Cloud pricing model allows customers to pay for only what they need as they need it.
Unified B2B: IPaaS adoption that supports integration and API’s
Scalability: Ability to quickly ramp up trading partners and industry standards.
Improved User Experience: Better UI allows for intuitive accessibility, easier navigation and fewer clicks
Rapid Partner Onboarding: Speed up new profile setups and communication preferences
Hybrid Connectivity: Connect with any apps whether in the cloud or on prem
Embrace IPaaS Benefits
Migrating your webMethods applications from on prem to the cloud makes sense in taking advantage of the IPaaS technology’s advantages. The updated product is a true blend of speed and configuration functionality. Web services haven’t been easier to design, deploy and govern. TechStone provides the necessary migration planning to move to the latest version of webMethods. The webMethods.io platform allows businesses to exchange documents in the cloud and avoid costly infrastructure. The platform provides end to end visibility into B2B transactions across the trading network offering a new approach to partner management. The new UI improves productivity offering clarity and intuitive navigations with minimal clicks.
Migration Strategy and Tools
After implementing hundreds of IPaaS projects TechStone has developed migration strategies and tools that expedite and improve migrations to the cloud. Below is a list of some of those involved in Phase I.
Discovery: Perform high-level survey of the existing integrations and list common patterns. Document the processes and their details as per proprietary templates
Reusable processes and common utilities: List all of them and document the logic.
Identify nonfunctional frameworks and migrate them: Logging and error handling
Developing standards/frameworks: Mapping repeatable elements to non- repeatable elements without duplicating the objects. (using dynamic properties and scripts).

TechStone partners with Incorta to provide the best data management solutions with real time data analytics.
The Incorta Direct Data Platform™ gives any business user the ability to analyze complex, full-fidelity business data in real-time. It provides integrated user access to all components of the data pipeline — data connections, business semantics, security settings, scheduling and publishing — allowing lines-of-business to be more self-sufficient and more agile.
Incorta customers skip past costly and time-consuming data warehouse projects, and focus on delivering data, insights, and real business results
Incorta Analytics. No Modeling. No ETL. BI Reimagined.
Until now, analyzing large volumes of complex business data spanning ERP, cloud applications, and other business systems required the construction of a costly, time-consuming data warehouse. And the only way to normalize the data from these multiple sources, understand their relationships, and perform analytics at scale was via a star-schema or cube.
Incorta Direct Data Mapping is the first real breakthrough in data analytics in 20 years. It cuts project implementation time from months to weeks, provides revolutionary query speed, and maintains a unified, single-source of truth for multiple workloads including business intelligence, analytics and machine learning.
Incorta’s Direct Data Mapping engine which automatically analyzes the data and eliminates the need for data modeling, cubes, batch jobs, or optimization of any kind.
Other systems require data transformation, reshaping your transactional data into a new summary model to provide acceptable query performance. This is a big effort that asks you to pose questions weeks or months ahead of being able to see results. And it strips away the original detail and data relationships.
