SOA PDM/ERP- Integration [PDM WebConnector]

Corporate solutions

for web-integration and web-enabling of existent PDM and Legacy systems are an essential part of the companywide IT integration.

The PDM WebConnector is a configurable, scalable and performant integration solution. It provides a uniform platform for access and data exchange from and to different backend systems. The PDM WebConnector also helps the companies to realize a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA).
The range of application covers a wide spectrum - from small solution (e.g. for access to single backend systems) to a company wide integration and web-enabling of several different systems and processes. Furthermore a company is able to implement a whole lifecycle management which includes internal divisions, partners, customers and suppliers.
