LAGAN Integration Adaptors | a KANA Software video
The LAGAN Integration Adaptors are categorized according to one of the following integration approaches: Application User Interface. Techniques include desktop integration of web-based applications intelligently with URL decoration or similar and "screen scraping". Application Programming Interface (API). Arguably the most powerful but most time consuming integration technique, this provides access to the functionality and data of an application without bypassing the application's business logic. Application Database. Arguably one to be avoided as you are bypassing the application's business logic (at least for n-tier architectured systems), this still has an important role to play, particularly in relation to business intelligence.
