The cornerstone step vital through the entire process is knowledge of the systems.
Knowing is half the battle
Prior to working on the integration, it is important to be versed in both parties' data models and with their API capabilities as it will serve you well to familiarize yourself with them for later use.
Things To Note
When it comes to the data models for both the 3rd party system and/or for IPaaS.com it is important to know which direction this data will be moving in relation to IPaaS.com (To/From).
once the collections that will be worked with for this integration may it just be customers or only transactions, we must now determine which direction this collection's data will be moving. This could be...
- From IPaaS.com
- IPaaS.com-->3rd party system
- To IPaaS.com
- IPaaS.com <--3rd party system
- IPaaS.com <-->3rd party system
Also take note of the schema for each collection in the system as one may return a collection differently than it is received.
this worksheet can define what the integration will be capable of. In terms this worksheet is a synopsis of the data models and the way that data will work in the integration based on the supported models in IPaaS.com. Consider this the order that needs to be delivered in the end.
