Overview

To keep up with the fast pace of business and escalating customer demands, organizations must have the agility to respond quickly to change. However, doing so requires an enterprise architecture that allows information to flow seamlessly between departments and across geographies. That’s easier said than done in most companies, where information “silos” caused by legacy applications and a diverse IT architecture prevent smooth information flow.

Oncorre’s Enterprise Integration practice provides a structured information processing and delivery framework that has helped leading global organizations break down information barriers across the enterprise. Our comprehensive suite of Enterprise Integration services delivers an end-to-end solution that addresses the four critical elements of business operations: business, people, process and IT.

Our Enterprise Application Integration solutions are designed to deliver measurable results and rapid ROI, and strike the right balance between business and IT needs. Using an end-to-end approach that customizes our Enterprise Integration solutions, we have helped many companies build integrated business practices that span organizations, people, systems and applications. The methodology makes it easy to propagate standard business procedures and information across an organization’s value chain, to better leverage the value of Enterprise Integration investments.
