Mapping The Storefront
To The Backend
Intelligent Workflow Managers ease the process.
Given the TCP/IP based
environment of the Intranet/Internet with Web Enabled devices
embedded throughout becoming prevalent, a strategy for automating
the flow of information from legacy Intranet systems to the Internet
Storefront has become essential.
One such strategy being
adopted is Intelligent Workflow Managers. A workflow management
background task allowing files generated at the Web Storefront
to be forwarded to the appropriate applications server will increase
the flow of work and stream line the process of getting data
from the Web to the Backend.
Intelligent FTP clients
are also being used for retrieving data from dedicated applications
servers on a scheduled basis and getting it to the Storefront
for continuous updates to shipping confirmations, product information
Coupled with Auto Import
Utilities designed to map Storefront data gathering forms and
interactive submissions to specific backend applications, data
can be migrated with a high degree of efficiency while maintaining
integrity from the Storefront to the Backend.
