BlueYonder leverages MuleSoft to deliver rapid workflows
Due to its diverse landscape, BlueYonder applications are hosted in BlueYonder Cloud, Google Cloud, Azure, and customer specific Data Centers. As a result, customer systems need an ability to securely connect to a significant number of data centers that could average almost 35 systems feeding data into and out of BlueYonder. Incoming transactional and bulk data to applications could range from several Megabytes to several Gigabytes, with multiple systems having their own representation or native format for its data.
With this project, BlueYonder sought the rapid delivery of business workflows between internal and external applications. If successful, this project would reduce the TCO (total cost of ownership) and TCI (total capital investment) for customer integrations. Moreover, BlueYonder needed to develop fast paced ‘in the field’ integrations between customers’ backend systems and the customization of existing workflows.
The solutions and services that the Apisero team developed have assisted BlueYonder in streamlining their application integrations throughout their diverse system landscape. These standardize integrations through canonical GS1 models facilitate rapid customization of product integrations for consumer requirements.
Moreover, the integration testing framework and containerized services streamline deployment as part of an overall CI/CD framework, allowing BlueYonder to obtain configuration and deployment automations faster and easier than before.
