About us

Open and honest about integration

wearefrank! Nice to meet you! We are there because we believe data- and systems integration should be open, honest and transparent. So we offer you, the user, the tools to build and manage the desired integrations yourself, without the long-term, expensive, unfair contracts and the closed, restricted platforms usually imposed by large companies. We are convinced that data- and systems integration need not be expensive or complicated.

30 professionals

WeAreFrank came into existence in 2013, when a number of Java experts and systems architects started to collaborate. Professionals all, with years of experience within complex development- and management environments, mostly working for large financial companies. Since then we have expanded our team to 30 enthusiastic integration specialists, all of them with expertise on the Frank!Framework and affinity with the leading and commonly-used tools in the Java-world.

Modern data-systems integration

It’s no coincidence that our name is wearefrank! Openness and honesty are what makes us different from our competitors. Exactly what you, as a customer, might expect from your supplier in this age of platforms and sharing.

Our modern approach of data- and systems integration is called Frank!Framework. This open source- integration framework can connect every system and application, make them communicate and so exchange uniform data. It standardises the way message-traffic between various applications should be built, maintained and updated. And, you can use it for free.

Open source at its best

With our Frank!Framework you are in charge of the data- and systems integration. Both corporate clients and technical integration professionals can build, manage and maintain connections. Open-source, user-friendly, transparent, platform-independent and flexible, with the guarantee that our involved specialists can analyse, advise, or-if you wish-take the entire integration-process off your hands.

Our solutions make it far more simple to implement complex data-integrations rapidly. And the best part is: through using the ready-made building blocks (over 100) of our Frank!Framework, you can make the most solid connections yourself. By sharing, we increase our experience and skills, mutually. Open source at its best!

For whom?

We are there for every company that needs to connect various systems. For companies considering themselves – apart from their core business – software companies as well; and who would like to keep the monitoring and have the expertise within the company, instead of being dependent on one specific product. It is our ambition not only to make life easier for the integration specialists and the developers, but not in the least for the administrator, in such a way that out of 100 problems 99 can be solved by you.
