Helping businesses mobilise data from SharePoint, Dynamics AX, NAV and CRM or WebSphere
London, 4 July 2012 – United Planet (www.unitedplanet.com), one of the leading developers of enterprise portal software in Europe, will be releasing its new Intrexx Business Adapter for OData later this summer.
The smart interface for OData data sources will enable data from all software systems and Internet services that use OData as their foundation to be incorporated into Web applications and enterprise portal processes, quickly and without any additional programming. This will increase the speed at which data from Microsoft SharePoint, Dynamics ERP and CRM, IBM WebSphere and other systems can be made available on any smartphone and other mobile devices.
Axel Wessendorf, managing director of United Planet, explains: “Providers of software solutions and Internet services are increasingly making their data available in the Open Data Protocol format (OData) because it simplifies the integration and editing of data via the Web. It is much more convenient to use than traditional Web services.”
OData is based on open Web standards like HTTP, Atom and JSON, and transfers data using the REST architectural style (Representational State Transfer). OData is particularly well suited to heterogeneous IT environments. It can even be used via the URL to carry out complex database queries.
Wessendorf adds: “What this means is that data from Facebook or eBay can be integrated with the Adapter just as easily as data from Microsoft Dynamics CRM, AX and NAV (formerly known as Navision), IBM WebSphere, Windows Azure or SQL Server. Using the Adapter, organisations will also be able to link Microsoft SharePoint to an Intrexx enterprise portal, enabling users to benefit from both solutions - the comprehensive DMS functions of SharePoint and the ability of Intrexx to quickly and easily create Web applications or to make data available for use on any mobile device – at the same time.”
A United Planet video that provides a comprehensive overview of the functionality of the new Intrexx Business Adapter for OData can be viewed at www.intrexx.com/en/videos/odata-sapphire-2012.
United Planet is also releasing a Business Adapter for SAP NetWeaver Gateway, which uses OData technology to quickly and economically integrate SAP data into Intrexx enterprise portals. The new Intrexx Business Adapter for SAP NetWeaver Gateway enhances the existing RFC-based SAP-interface (www.intrexx.com/en/business-adapters/sap-business-suite) that United Planet already provides for Intrexx.
