IBM® WebSphere® Cast Iron® offers complete connectivity with out-of-box rich connectors for cloud and on-premise applications. In addition to native connectivity to industry-leading SaaS and enterprise applications, you can choose from hundreds of connectors to applications, which enables you to connect to every type of database, custom application, web service and protocol.
It is the only platform available that provides a complete flexibility in deployment options. For example, you can build, run and manage an integration between applications such as SFDC (salesforce.com) & SAP and deploy it using a physical on-premise appliance, a virtual appliance, or completely in our multi-tenant cloud service. It is the only solution that allows for this choice of deployment using the same product and code-base interchangeably. Because of this, it is futureproof, meaning you can start off with one form-factor today, and easily move to another one over-time to scale to your IT strategies.
IBM® WebSphere® Cast Iron® integration provides a user-friendly template-based approach via the Template Integration Process (TIP). These are templates of common integration scenarios which can be used as a starting-point for your integration projects, so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. Cast Iron® gives you the benefit of previous success and best-practices available through our community of customers which equates to repeatable success for your organization’s integration needs. This saves you time and decreases risk.
FOR ALL TYPES OF PROJECTS
Finally, this is one platform for all types of integration projects. You can use IBM® WebSphere® Cast Iron® integration for data migration, process integration or even for user interface (UI) mashups for taking relevant data from a back office application (i.e. SAP) and displaying it within a commonly used front office application such as SFDC.
