Transparent structure, low cost and efficiency
Of course, you could “just” write a Java-connection to make every two systems connect. But, in practice this is much more complicated than it seems. Mergers, new software or changing business operations and innovations require multiple systems to be able to communicate. One Java-connection won’t do the job…
Before long, you end up with a spaghetti of different connections. A sticky substance, almost impossible to untangle. Modifications are complex, time consuming and specifically error-prone. The chance that the strings of spaghetti come off undamaged is almost non-existent
If you work with Frank!Framework you don’t have to worry about tangled spaghetti. Frank!Framework gives you an accurate overview because the basis is the same for all systems. Only the adapters need to be configured per system. Therefore there is no need for complex programming to make the various systems communicate.
Less expensive and more efficient
All separate systems can be connected to the Enterprise Service Bus. In case of changes to the system only one connection has to be adjusted through the Frank!Framework – instead of all the connections separately with the ‘spaghetti structure’. This doesn’t only diminish the error sensitivity, it also has a positive effect on the cost and efficiency. The cost to build a connection in our Frank!Framework is lower than in a Java-connection, as this has to be fully programmed. Moreover, our connection will be operational much more readily.
Transparent management environment
In addition, Frank!Framework features an extensive management environment (the Frank!Console), in which the status of every connected adapter can be easily monitored and managed. The management module gives insight in version data, status of implemented messages, error logs and messages still in the pipeline. Better transparency is hardly possible!
