Tab navigation

EXTOL Business Integrator (EBI) is a complete, portable middleware solution for creating, testing, deploying, monitoring, and managing robust business integration applications. It enables individuals and small IT teams to rapidly integrate applications, data, and external partners, using XML, flat file, database, spreadsheet, and (with an available option) EDI data.

Businesses use EBI to automate processing of partner transactions, integrate internal and Software-as-a-Service applications, extract and syndicate business intelligence data, wrap and expose application and data services, and more.

EBI includes a complete set of services for internal and external communications, data analysis and routing, business process automation, any-to-any data transformation, event management and scheduling, logging, auditing, monitoring, and management functions.

The included EXTOL Integration Studio is a graphical toolkit that provides project wizards, metadata management tools, process modeling, transformation ruleset specification, adapter configuration, testing, and auditing functions. Collectively, these tools span the complete application lifecycle, from creation, through testing and deployment, to ongoing maintenance and enhancement.
