NLINK® is a Rapid Application Integration (RAI) product suite that significantly reduces the time and expense of integrating plant floor systems to SAP by providing a standardized and repeatable integration process. Fast to implement and easy to change, NLINK requires no end-user coding to integrate complex ERP systems like SAP and Oracle Applications.
With NLINK, integration is completely configuration-based through an intuitive visual environment that requires no end-user programming. This allows functional business users to perform complex integration tasks and provides a scalable and maintainable integration solution as business processes and installed applications change over time. NLINK’s patented technology has been designed from the ground-up to provide real-time communications between disparate applications both within and across enterprises.
In general, technologies (such as Web Services, XML, etc.) are supported through NLINK eXtenders® while support for a particular vendor’s implementation of technology (such as SAP) is supported through NLINK CoNNectors®. This philosophy of technology independence allows NLINK integration projects to provide the optimal solution on a project-by-project basis.
The NLINK Server is a high-performance configuration-based integration engine. The NLINK Server is a true enterprise-class product providing all the essential elements of an integration server, (configurable formatting, mapping, transformation, and business logic), as well as advanced features such as reliability, scalability, flexibility and manageability.
The NLINK Modules enhance the basic capability of the NLINK Server by providing optional functionality that more demanding deployments may require. By separating this advanced functionality from the core product, NLINK customers are provided with a cost-effective integration solution that can be upgraded at will as and when needed.
