Overview

The Systems Integration Extension is an Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) tool build just for Magento. The Systems Integration Extension makes it easy to connect Magento to external systems so that order, product, inventory, customer and shipment data can back and forth. Built specifically for Magento, the integrator is made up of three main components:

  • Manager
    • Define the inbound and outbound integration points
    • Configure the type of integration point that will be used (e.g. Webservices, FTP, EDI, etc.)
    • Schedule the frequency of the integrations
  • Maker
    • Map inbound and outbound data to Magento fields (or use predefined integration templates)
    • Build processing logic to run after the integration has run (e.g. response codes, data cleanup, etc.)
  • Monitor
    • Monitor and log your integrations to make sure everything is running okay.
    • See all integration points and mappings.
    • Notify administrators if there is an issue.

 

Why Use It

High-performing e-commerce sites need to be integrated into external systems. Magento has some good features for data exchange, but we (Accorin engineering) found that we were rebuilding the same integration functionality on each customer project, or buying point extensions to meet specific data exchange needs. So, Accorin invested a few thousand hours to develop the Systems Integration Extension. The result is a really powerful EAI tool that significantly streamlines the integration of Magento to external data sources, applications and systems.

Examples of how you can use the Systems Integration Extension:

  • Add Orders from Magento to an external Order Management System (e.g. Shopatron) or ERP system (eg. SAP).
  • Add Orders to Magento from an external Order Management System (e.g. Shopatron) or ERP system (e.g. SAP).
  • Update Order Status from Magento to an external Order Management System (e.g. Shopatron) or ERP system (e.g. SAP).
  • Update Shipment Status from a WMS (e.g. Manhattan Associates) or TMS system (e.g. UPS WorldShip)
  • Inventory Updates from a WMS (e.g. Manhattan Associates)
  • Add and Update Product Information from a Product Information Management system (e.g. Akeneo)
  • Send Product Feeds to Marketplaces (e.g. Amazon)
  • Send Advertising Feeds to external platforms (e.g. Google PLAs)
  • Send Product Feeds to Product Review Sites (e.g. PowerReviews)
