Pillir’s EdgeReady Cloud provides the ability to interact with backend systems and interface with the UI via its Integration Builder. The drag-n-drop functionality, now enhanced with Scratch graphical building blocks, enables quick development of integrations and business logic.
The Integration Builder is a central module for all business and integration logic, and some of its capabilities are:
Business & Integration Logic
The Integration Builder provides several out-of-the-box graphical business logic components combined to build and execute any business logic in a low-code/no-code environment These actions are encapsulated and self-contained and are used in any sequence to build the desired business logic. For example, it contains Logical blocks such as ASSIGN, IF-ELSE, LOOP, REPEAT, TERMINATE, etc., as well as Utility blocks such as LOOKUP, SORT, FILE PARSE, etc.
The Integration Builder provides out-of-box, built-in adapters for third-party SaaS application integrations. These adapters are provided as blocks that can be simply dragged and dropped while building the integration logic. The adapter blocks are self-contained to be used anywhere when building the integration logic. After connecting to the SaaS system, the adapter provides the relevant meta-data, which can be visually mapped to the application. Some of the out-of-the-box SaaS adapters available are:
Salesforce Adapters: Pillir’s EdgeReady Cloud platform provides an out-of-the-box adapter for Salesforce integration. The Salesforce adapter supports all the functions of Salesforce integrations such as Object List, Object create, Object Update, and Object delete.
Web-Service Adapters: Pillir’s EdgeReady Cloud platform provides a Web-Service adapter supporting SOAP protocols and is used to connect to SaaS applications via web services. It supports all read and write functions as provided by the third-party SaaS application. The adapter can read any legacy application exposed as a web service.
REST-Service Adapters: Pillir’s EdgeReady Cloud platform provides a REST-Service adapter that supports integration to any SaaS applications that are exposed via REST Services. It works very similar to Web-Service adapters except that it supports REST protocols.
Database Adapters: Pillir’s EdgeReady Cloud platform provides database adapters that can connect to cloud-based database applications, i.e., any SaaS applications that give access to its relational databases via the cloud or any on-premise database system like Oracle, MySQL, etc. The database adapter provides the capability to read, write, update, delete, and access PL/SQL scripts.
FTP Adapters: Pillir’s EdgeReady Cloud platform comes with FTP/File adapters to read and write files from 3rd party cloud applications. The adapter lets the user connect to various cloud-based systems via SFTP-SSH file transfer protocol to connect to the cloud system to download a file, upload a file, copy a file, list files, delete a file.
ERP and Legacy System Adapters
The Integration Builder enables integrations to backend applications like ERP systems, databases, and many others via EdgeReady Plugin. These adapters are enabled as actions in the Integration Builder. They can be graphically used to interact with various backend applications. These adapters are native adapters that provide integration to the backend applications to discover the meta-data and map the required fields to the application. The mappings can be done graphically while building the integration logic. The various out-of-the-box native adapters are:
SAP Adapters: Pillir’s EdgeReady Cloud, comes with various native SAP adapters to integrate with SAP applications such as ECC, CRM, SRM, BI, and other components. Some of the native SAP Adapters are:
BAPI/RFC Adapter: The BAPI/RFC adapter can connect to all SAP applications such as ECC, CRM, SRM, and many others using BAPI (Business Application Programming Interface) and RFC (Remote Function Calls) of SAP. The BAPI/RFC adapter can be used to call any standard or custom BAPI/RFC interfaces from SAP applications.
Web-Service Adapters: The component of the Pillir’s EdgeReady Cloud platform comes with pre-built adapters for connecting to applications via web services using SOAP protocol. It supports all read and write functions as provided by the middleware or the business application.
Database Adapters: The on-premise component of the Pillir’s EdgeReady Cloud platform comes with pre-built database adapters for connecting to relational database applications such as Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, etc.
