Integration issues for any-to-cloud apps: Visibility into data

Jack Vaughan Jack Vaughan Profile: Jack Vaughan

While working for a large consultancy and later on his own during the 2000′s dot.com bust, Steve Yaskin commonly had to find a way to access undocumented and orphaned CRM and ERP applications in order to integrate them with Web and other applications. The approach he took to tooling, enhanced and extended, is now being applied to the task of any-to-cloud integration.
 
To delve into the enterprise application ‘black boxes’ of yore, Yaskin, now Founder and CTO with Queplex Corp., devised tools that connected to the data bases in question and abstracted business objects out of the resident data.  A central element is what Yaskin calls a ‘persistent meta data server.’
 
Yaskin and company have expanded on the early tools, giving them an any-to-cloud integration twist. This week at the Salesforce.com Dreamforce conference, Queplex rolled out QueCloud on the AppExchange, which allows enterprises to integrate Salesforce with cloud and on-premise applications from vendors such as SAP, Oracle and NetSuite. It seems that a good view into enterprise application data is even more crucial now that real-time BI and cloud applications are becoming de rigueur.
 
Tools help as data integration project time is so often squandered on laborious data discovery stages, as Mark Brunelli notes in ”Experts reveal the top 5 data integration best practices” on SearchDataManagement.com. Visibility into data objects is a crucial first step in data integration, according to Yaskin of Queplex, who speaks with Brunelli in this article.
