Keys To Successful Integration

Value Creed’s experts held SCRUM calls with Eco-Energy’s team nearly every day, allowing us to gain useful insights into their technical needs across a three-month integration process.

Identifying Challenges

  • We avoided hard-coding by using mapping tables to align the data source needs for multiple mapping mechanisms on the front end. Doing so allowed us to identify the best methods of suiting the integration.
  • Through this process we were able to remain flexible throughout the entire integration, allowing us perspective into what challenges we would face and the best ways to handle them as they arose.

Quality Assurance​

  • Invoices (payable or receivable) that were generated in the CTRM were accumulated into a staging table. When we called the Oracle APIs, the system identified specified columns, confirming that these invoices were successfully posted.
  • Through this process we were able to identify minor differences in the price and quantity calculations, which could lead to inaccurate order data. Our quality assurance confirmed value and quality matched in both the CTRM system and Oracle.

Voiding Payable Invoices​

  • When a credit is provided for a receivable invoice in the CTRM platform, voided values must be interfaced in Oracle so the balance is equivalent. Value Creed defined a specific process that allowed this voiding process to run successfully.
  • Thanks to our flexible approach to integration development, we implemented proactive error resolution at every step of the data stream.
