What is the ConnectALL Integration Platform?
ConnectALL is an integration platform that comes with ConnectALL Core comprising the engine and graphical user interface (GUI), and Application Adapters that are built to establish the link between specific applications and ConnectALL Core.
The engine leverages an ESB technology. The GUI is used to configure how data are shared and synchronized between applications. A minimum of two ConnectALL adapters are required for the product to operate.
ConnectALL is enterprise-ready. It is the only solution that offers:
- clustering (including load sharing and failover)
- guaranteed message delivery
- injectable workflow engine
- configurable reporting engine/traceability
- secure connections
- siloed multitenancy
- out-of-box configs are modifiable
- even the configurations are traceable and reportable, can be rolled forward and back.
It is the highest performance integration solution by far. It can handle thousands of users, working across continents in complex, worldwide, networked systems.
ConnectALL offers automatic, effortless, high-fidelity synchronization. It automatically detects and resolves conflicts between tools and applications with its built-in, robust conflict detection mechanism. In other words: It just works! Your people do what they are good at and ConnectALL handles the complexity invisibly.
Yes. Companies often have distributed sites and still want a common backplane to connect multiple projects, even if they are all using one system (e.g. several teams, using multiple instance of Jira in different offices). Think of the product as unifying projects as well as DevOps systems. Our largest customer has over 300 projects. Customers laud ConnectALL for avoiding overburdening the servers’ CPUs, a problem associated with a plugin.
Yes. It also has greater functionality. An adapter, also referred to as a connector, is a self-contained component set of APIs, provides multiple integrations through a universal broker with the APIs of external applications. That broker is an enterprise serial bus. The unique advantage of an adapter over a plugin is the decoupling of the data layer (where the adapter resides) and the business rule layer (ConnectALL GUI). Therefore, policies and rules can be changed without modifications to the adapter. There is no hardcoded business logic in the adapter, making it a much lighter interface than a plugin. All of the ConnectALL adapters support both unidirectional and bi-directional synchronization.
Because ConnectALL leverages an ESB technology, it can take advantage of the ESB’s enterprise-ready features.
Licensing & Pricing
ConnectALL follows a subscription licensing model, i.e., you pay the license fee annually, which allows you to use the software during the subscription term. The total fee includes your software licenses, access to support services and new versions of the software as they are released.
ConnectALL’s pricing has the following components: Core engine and the adapter price. Each adapter has a different price. The engine and adapters are licensed annually.
You can check the updated list of currently supported ConnectALL adapters, and future adapters. We make sure to update ConnectALL to support updates from application and tool vendors. The list of currently supported applications and their compatible versions is available on each adapters page.
System Requirements and Deployment Options
ConnectALL can be deployed as either an on-premise or cloud solution.
