ROMA Enterprise Business Integration Platform

The Relationship, Open, Multi-Ecosystem, and Any-Connect (ROMA) platform facilitates the integration of enterprise applications and data. It enables on-cloud, off-cloud, and cross-region integration of messages, data, and APIs to simplify cloud migration. It also streamlines IT and OT systems and bridges enterprises and their partners.
Solution Advantages
  • Unified Platform

    Serves as a one-stop message, API, and data integration platform that significantly simplifies enterprises' application integration architectures.

  • Integration and Openness

    Interconnects with various database, middleware, and public cloud services; supports conversion between multiple protocols involved in API, message, and database operations.

  • Configuration Integration

    Simplifies integration development and reduces skill requirements for implementers and operators.

  • Developer Perspective

    Provides reliable API and message integration capabilities, freeing developers from dealing with underlying networks and facilitating cross-region application integration.

Business Challenges
  • Difficulties in Cross-Network Distributed Integration

    Enterprise applications need to be deployed on both public and private clouds across regions as business grows. Traditional integration methods are not able to implement on-cloud, off-cloud, and inter-cloud application integration across networks while ensuring security and reliability. In addition, New information silos are formed after application cloudification, making it difficult to integrate with private cloud applications.

  • Complexity of Integration Architecture and Dependency

    The complexity of enterprise business leads to the co-existence of traditional applications, cloud applications, SaaS, and multiple data sources. Traditional point-to-point integration complicates integration and dependency relationships between system applications. This makes architecture expansion and maintenance difficult.

  • Digital Divide Between IT and OT Systems

    Enterprises' Internet of Things (IoT) data lies in multi-vendor devices, IT systems, closed industrial systems, and multiple IoT platforms. Massive OT data (production and IoT device data) cannot be efficiently transferred to IT systems and big data platforms to maximize its value.

  • Difficulties in Multi-Cloud Collaboration and Opening Capabilities

    Business innovation and cross-regional collaboration with partners requires enterprises to open up their capabilities and introduce innovative cloud services. It follows that a business integration platform needs to provide various capabilities, such as secure cross-network integration, service orchestration, and service opening. Implementing these capabilities can be challenging.

  • Cross-Region Application Connection

  • Capability Opening

  • Ecosystem Connection

On-/Off-Cloud Application Connection

One-stop Hybrid Cloud Integration Platform: Accelerating Application Cloudification

  1. One-stop Hybrid Cloud Integration Platform

    ROMA provides message, API, and data integration capabilities, enabling on- and off-cloud distributed deployments. It allows resumable data transmission, significantly simplifying enterprises' application integration architectures and dependency relationships.

  2. Cross-Network Security Integration

    ROMA simplifies the communication architecture, and implements secure, on- and off-cloud integration, minimizing the risk of attacks. Enterprises can choose the Internet, VPNs, private lines, or other networking modes without needing to modify their current network topologies.

  3. Centralized Analysis of On-Cloud Big Data

    ROMA interconnects data scattered among various off-cloud systems and databases with on-cloud big data services for centralized analysis and processing. This simplifies data processing and minimizes costs.

Cross-Region Application Connection

Distributed Deployment for Local Access: Eliminating the Need to Deal with Networks

  1. Distributed Deployment for Local Access

    ROMA can be deployed on the public cloud or in multiple data centers to form integration points. Service systems connect to the nearest integration point, greatly improving the reliability of message and API integration. ROMA also provides intelligent routing for cross-region system integration, freeing developers from needing to deal with networks.

  2. Centralized Management

    ROMA enables enterprises to manage permissions, rules and dependencies in a centralized manner. It facilitates information exchange between IT systems across different levels and regions, and ensures the flexibility and independence of these IT systems.

  3. Cross-Region Data Synchronization

    ROMA supports data synchronization between service systems across regions, as well as field mapping and scheduled and real-time synchronization. It enables service systems to provide services for local users nearby, improving service quality.

  4. Streamlined IT and OT

    ROMA integrates the databases of devices from multiple vendors, and interconnects with multiple IoT platforms and cloud services. It seamlessly integrates enterprises' OT data with IT systems and big data platforms, bridging the digital divide between IT and OT systems.

Capability Opening

Enterprise Capability Monetization and Innovative Cloud Service Orchestration

  1. Servitization Without Reconstruction

    With ROMA's protocol conversion, security, routing, traffic limiting, and other capabilities, you can servitize your core capabilities and encapsulate them through APIs and message interfaces.

  2. Easy Service Orchestration

    Through visualized configuration or function development, you can orchestrate your core services, innovative cloud services (such as EI), and SaaS services to accelerate innovation.

  3. Capability Openness

    ROMA's API marketplace allows you to migrate your internal capabilities to the cloud and open up them in the marketplace through a unified service catalog. You can publish orchestrated services as public or private services to encourage the construction of innovative applications.

Ecosystem Connection

Unified B2B Gateway: Achieving Fast Interconnection with Ecosystem Partners and Breaking Enterprise Boundaries

  1. Secure Partner Integration

    ROMA connects enterprises to their ecosystem partners without using private lines to prevent network attacks. It shields enterprises' business logic through on-cloud APIs and message interfaces, supporting cross-region partner integration.

  2. Enterprise-grade Message Integration

    ROMA provides caching capabilities for message integration, protecting against avalanche problems that can be caused when integration is performed through APIs alone.

  3. Lightweight B2B Integration

    ROMA supports the migration of enterprise internal capabilities to the cloud, helping enterprises develop a unified service catalog and cross-enterprise business integration with partners.
