The Leader in Performance Management Integration

OneCloud Deployment Strategies

OneCloud Customer Success Team

Businesses are demanding more data. Organizations need to know exactly how their cash reserves are being used, which regions or business units are profitable and where there are opportunities for improvement. Data, and more accurately, reliable data are critical to business success. The time-honored phrase, do more with less, is becoming increasingly poignant.

Many organizations have some processes in place to support data integration for their performance management systems. This often is a collection of many different technical solutions, some applications, some custom coding, some command line. These solutions require various skill sets to maintain and often have been developed by people that are no longer with the organization (former employees or consultants). Many of these solutions are brittle and unable to scale.

As organizations seek out more and better data, OneCloud is an investment worth considering. OneCloud empowers organizations to integrate enterprise systems and seamlessly exchange data, automate critical but routine tasks to allow the organization to focus on value-added business activities, and accelerate the implementation and execution of operational and strategic objectives. We deliver all of this without you needing to write any custom code allowing your business is free to focus on what the data tells you rather than collecting the data.

While an organization may look at the cost of OneCloud from a software perspective as a worthwhile investment, the other factor considered is time. We realize that time is just as valuable, especially when looking through the aforementioned lens of, do more with less. OneCloud is flexible and allows organizations to take a stepped approach to deployment.

OneCloud supports a point-and-run approach to initial deployment, meaning that OneCloud can be used to orchestrate existing technical solutions. This approach has several benefits. First, a consolidated application now controls the disparate integration processes. An organization no longer has to remember where a particular process is invoked, OneCloud functions as the central application through which all data integration is managed. Second, existing solutions can be enhanced with minimal effort using native OneCloud functionality. Examples include various notification methods including email, PagerDuty and Slack, automatic retry attempts in the event of errors, and error logging that is human readable. Lastly, a point-and-run deployment can be achieved in hours or days, depending on the number of processes to migrate. The time investment is minimal while introducing consistency and greater resiliency.

An initial point-and-run implementation allows an organization to take a measured or stepped approach for transitioning existing integrations to OneCloud. Maintaining the legacy integration in OneCloud while redeploying the integration as a new process using the features and capabilities of OneCloud provides several benefits. First and foremost, an existing integration that provides accurate data is already in place. This reduces the time-sensitivity of rebuilding an integration. Because a backup option is in place, the organization can spend more time evaluating new or expanded requirements, building a more elegant integration including Command documentation, notifications, error handling, and retry attempts and finally, spend more time testing to ensure data quality.

With a staged OneCloud implementation, new integrations can be developed utilizing the OneCloud features and capabilities. At the same time, existing integrations can be ported as previously described. This approach helps end the cycle of multiple integration methodologies and lays the foundation for a consolidated data integration platform.

The benefits of a unified platform are undeniable. Because OneCloud is built with the business user in mind, integrations are simple to build, maintain, and execute. OneCloud enables the organization to focus on the output of data integration rather than data integration itself and, in doing so, gives your organization greater insight into what your data is telling you.
