What is an ERP Integration?

ERP Integration is the method by which a business connects its ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software with other applications. The objective is to share data across systems to improve productivity and insights and create a single source of truth. There are several conventional approaches to achieving this, including point-to-point, ESB (Enterprise Service Bus), and iPaaS (Integration Platform as a Service).

Connecting to 3rd-party APIs - How to work with REST API connector

In this video, I’m working with our REST API connector to connect to our own Integration Management API. We offer several ways to authenticate an API depending on its configuration. Here we take basic authentication with username and password. Now with the API, the username is actually the email address you registered with. You can navigate to the Profile Information page to copy it from there. For the password, you will take our API Key that you will find on the Profile Information page as well. Just click on it and it will be automatically copied to you clipboard. After you added the credentials, you can proceed with the configuration. Here you have several options to choose from. I’m leaving everything as it is but I need to add the URL. In our case, the URL is also provided on the Profile Information page. In other cases – with other APIs –, you will need to check the corresponding API documentation. Now all I need to do is retrieve a sample to check if the configuration has been done correctly – and it looks good. Et voilà, now I can use the’s own API in my integration flow.

Introduction to Machine Learning Models

Over the last 100 years alone, artificial intelligence has achieved what was once believed to be science fiction: cars that drive themselves, machine learning models that diagnose heart disease better than doctors can, and predictive customer analytics that lead to companies knowing their customers better than their parents do. This machine learning revolution was sparked by a simple question: can a computer learn without explicitly being told how?

Achieving a 12% performance lift migrating Raygun's API to .NET Core 3.1

Here at Raygun, improving performance is baked into our culture. We don't just think about our application performance, but more broadly, we look at our own infrastructure and ask if there's anything we can do to make it more performant for our business and for our customers. Two years ago, we switched our API from Node.js to .NET Core and achieved a 2000% increase in throughput. To continue that story, we recently upgraded .NET Core 2.1 to 3.1 and saw a 12% increase in performance. We enjoy presenting our performance findings, so in this post, we'd like to give some context into why we upgraded and the conditions that helped us achieve the 12% performance lift.

How to Extend Your ERP

ERP systems enable businesses to bring together and manage core processes and technologies under one system. But the truth is, an out-of-the-box ERP system rarely fits a business perfectly, and even if it does, it is only temporary. A business’s challenges, needs, and strategies change and grow over time, and its tools must too. When an ERP’s functionality does not fully meet your business’s needs, it’s time to think about extending it.
