Integrations and architecture

Well built and though integrations and architecture ensure that different systems have clear responsibilities and all information is in the right place.

Integration and architecture


Overall management

In integration solutions performance and being systematic are important metrics because otherwise managing the overall landscape becomes difficult. Lamia has worked with numerous interfaces, data transfer formats, protocols and integrations. We have also optimized integrations to support large data quantities and fast response times. In practise all our projects include a vast integration part which ensures the smart automation of data transfer.

Keep your data up to date

A digital service, a web store or an ordering system is often integrated to the enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. In that case the information such as product details, customer information and price lists can be centralized in one ERP system. Orders will be transferred directly to the ERP system. This can be accomplished in real time or at certain intervals.

Other examples of integrated and transferable information include customer and product data. If needed, the current stock balance can also be obtained in real time using the ERP system. Integration between web store and the other system can be either uni- or bidirectional.


Systems create a culture

In addition to software development we work with system architectures. Over time in monolithic systems transferring data becomes slow, there are overlapping functionalities and the mere maintenance of the system takes a lion's share of the budget. If the development activities are also slow, you are easily losing competitive edge on the market where smaller players are able to innovate more quickly.

Strategic partner for system architecture

We at Lamia have years of experience in planning demanding system architectures and integrations. The first step in each project is a thorough mapping of the current state including interviews with all the users and vendors. In this discovery phase we also handle needed technical audits. When we have a clear picture of the current state and all systems listed, we can start to think about the relations between them. Are there overlapping systems that take up users' valuable time? Van some of the systems be removed altogether? Whats kind of integrations would best serve the information flow to make it easier and faster?

Often we get to the agile development model by splitting the monolithic system into smaller subsystems or parts meaning microservices. This reform does not happen over night so it is important to create a realistic roadmap that takes into account the resources and the most critical business needs.
