Cloud applications are on the rise everywhere. This also increases the need for their integration. Geberit, the leading European manufacturer of sanitary and piping system, is consolidating its applications consistently in the Microsoft cloud platform. For data transmission between the system landscapes, QUIBIQ implemented an Internet service bus (ISB) in Azure. This ensures an efficient, cross-application processing of sales-specific processes in real-time, thereby allowing competitive advantages through innovative Integration as a Service.
"We intensively reviewed the middleware solutions of various providers and then decided on the solution offered by QUIBIQ: Integration as a Service – entirely cloud-based and needs-based", recalls Gallus Römer, Head of Sales and Marketing Applications at the Geberit Group. "QUIBIQ was introduced to us by Microsoft as a leading provider of new, cloud-based solutions for application integration, and we felt like we were in good hands with our innovative project from the very beginning."
The Internet service bus functions as "glueware" between the ERP and the CRM systems at Geberit. The ISB expands the Microsoft cloud platform Azure to include the functions necessary for the integration of these different systems:
