TechStone embraces the next evolution of integration by leveraging Integration Platform as a Service (IPaaS), a cloud service that provides a platform to support application, data, and process integration projects. Through IPaaS, TechStone provides customers with a combination of the capabilities typically found in enterprise service buses, data integration tools, B2B gateways, managed file transfer products, and API management platforms.
TechStone provides the world's most prominent companies with data management and implementation to enable scalable and seamless automation.
It’s still common for corporations to use legacy solutions like Sterling Commerce and Gentran, EDI VANs, and B2B Hubs. TechStone has been automating EDI systems and processes for more than 17 years, including the following formats: 810, 824, 830, 845, 846, 850, 855, 856, 860, 861, 865, 867, 870, 945, 957, and many more.
TechStone offers managed services to our Boomi customers, including monitoring, production fixes, and other related Boomi needs. This can include up to 24/7 support by combining offshore support with our onshore presence. We also provide ad hoc architecture and development as required.
With locations in Delhi and Hyderabad, TechStone provides full Boomi offshore support, while Agile methodology ensures faster turnarounds. This combination of our onshore leadership and detailed requirements processes results in lower customer costs with effective delivery and support.
Located in Mexico City, TechStone’s nearshore entity provides customers with Boomi and Salesforce support from a Western time zone. This service lowers the time to market for delivery turnaround and allows for more rapid development. TechStone supports the following Salesforce solutions: Salesforce Sales Cloud, Field Service Cloud, Force.com, and APEX.
Customers that recently purchased software from one of TechStone’s partners can use TechStone’s installation services, which typically include sizing, hardware recommendations, security, environment build-outs, configuration, infrastructure architecture, and testing.
Without sound architecture and design, anything that is built is prone to risks. We ensure our customers’ success through proven architecture processes and methodology, beginning with a software architecture design plan as the blueprint.
As a complement to project-based work, TechStone provides ad hoc staff augmentation services to assist customers with bandwidth or skill set needs.
During the first week of a new installation, we provide 3-5 days of training depending on the size of the installation and footprint, as well as ongoing training throughout the year.
TechStone’s proprietary health-check solution for middleware customers, TechStone MD solves customers’ performance issues and provides a thorough evaluation and findings exercise for their middleware platform. This includes:
- Platform and configuration discovery
- Review of the currently deployed solution
- Identification of system deficiencies and targeted improvements
- Architecture assessment and recommendations
- Platform configuration and solution architecture
- Best practices
TechStone’s proprietary roadmap solution helps customers plan for their future using middleware. This includes roadmap discovery documenting current and future state over a 3-5 year period as well as analysis of objectives and capacity for a 3-5 year plan.
Developed internally by TechStone, this custom architecture leverages a canonical data model utilizing multiple abstract layers and provides an event-driven architecture allowing for process orchestration and business logic encapsulation.
With TechStone’s extensive background in the industry, we leverage all of our experience to help companies modernize their current platforms and move from on-prem to cloud platforms. These modernization processes include both technology and change management, and they are expedited by TechStone’s Migration Accelerators.
- ARG (Audit Report Generator): One of the first steps in any migration project is conducting an audit of the current interfaces and integrations and cataloging them into levels of complexity. TechStone’s Audit Report Generator delivers reports about the existing on-prem platform landscape in a shorter time than a manual assessment approach.
- Logic Translator: It’s typical in a legacy platform to have multiple processes for each integration, including a large number of customizations. Converting logic is essential for a successful migration project. These conversions include error handling, REST operations, document types, complex logic on XML documents using multiple branches and utilities, Java logic on XML documents, pipeline variables, multiple branches on a document, input validation using multiple checks, and Java services.
As a middleware specialist since 2004, TechStone has become an expert advisor for many companies evaluating integration solutions. TechStone has a proprietary methodology and approach for vendor assessments that uniquely combines Gartner’s TCO analysis and TechStone’s support and implementation experience. In this fast-growing and rapidly evolving market, where aggressive new entrants try to win new customers as fast as possible, we leverage our expertise to assess the vendor’s ability to deliver an iPaaS solution that meets the expected set of functions, ensuring that customers’ integration projects succeed.

TechStone provides data visualization solutions that help make complex data more understandable and lead businesses to ask better questions and make better decisions. These dashboards enable customers to present heterogeneous data scattered through multiple data sources and formats on a single screen, facilitating analysis and decision-making. Insights can be communicated between different teams more easily, and users can react in real time and drill down to the level of granularity relevant to their function.
