Leveraging the data you already have by providing simplified integration and interfacing with your existing ERP system
It is common practice to provide interconnectivity of data from external systems to an Energy Trading Risk Management (ETRM) system. In fact, heavy investments in ERP systems require that these platforms remain the system of record through many years. The difficulty is in ensuring any new system you incorporate into your business can be seamlessly integrated with your existing data. Allegro allows companies to leverage the data within their existing ERP systems by providing the technology for easy movement of the data flow.
In 2002, Allegro was the first in the ETRM space to develop a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) platform. Through an SOA approach, Allegro offers scalability and extensibility of our solutions allowing the platform to adjust and expand as companies add functionality and enter new markets.
The design of the platform allows for standardization and modularization of a multitude of business functions, including connectivity, providing real-time data that easily flows between Allegro and existing ERP systems. This enables true, enterprise-wide information sharing.
By utilizing Allegro’s Connect functionality, companies gain bi-directional connectivity to multiple ERP systems by allowing middleware providers to manage data integration between the Allegro platform and numerous systems.
Allegro’s vast experience with ERP to ETRM integration includes such companies as: Oracle, (including Peoplesoft and JD Edwards), Epicore, Microsoft Dynamics, Sage and SAP. In addition, middleware providers like SAP XI, Oracle Fusion, IBM Websphere, Red Hat, Tibco, and Webmethods are also key applications that can be integrated with the Allegro platform. Typically, any middleware vendor can be integrated that has the ability to evoke a web service using WD3 web compliance.
Possible interfacing scenarios vary widely, however, examples include;
