Integration Software joined Power BI Red Carpet

We are proud and happy to announce that we at Integration Software now are part of the Microsoft Power BI Red Carpet program, making us an official partner and enabling us to provide our customers with the latest information and great support for Microsoft Power BI.

Microsoft Power BI is helping users spot risks & find opportunities at a glance so they can save the day, every single day.

Microsoft Power BI has been adapted to Integration Manager at an early stage. It is a great way for customers within the IT department to provide their business and other departments with the data they need to have the insights and control over system integrations they want. System integrations have been and still are black holes for many departments of an organizations. This black hole must no longer be a black hole and we believe and know that by using Integration Manager together with Microsoft Power BI, you enable your business to use integrations as a business resource, rather than a cost. But it is not only the business that can take advantage of this solution, the possibilities are endless.

  • Document system integrations with Integration Manager and easily find out dependencies, who is responsible, versions and so on by connecting it to Power BI.
  • Change Managers can easily find out systems/applications that are being affected when making and applying changes and giving them with one sight whom to contact.
  • Track the number of errors per integration
  • Measure the number of messages per integration
  • Provide the business with dashboards giving them live status of the systems and the information for them to know if everything is up and running
  • And much much more…

Feel free to contact us at info@integrationsoftware.se and book an online demo showing you both Integration Manager and Power BI and the endless opportunity both solutions provide!

Azure App Services Series – Finding #6: No possibility to comment triggers and actions in Logic Apps

This blog post is one of many of a series we have about Microsoft Azure App Services. See a list of all our findings here.

Introduction

Working with Logic Apps is fun, but in the current version of it is kind of hard to keep track what all the different actions do. Let’s say you use the BizTalk XPath Extractor several times, because you need to extract several values from an XML file content. But take a look at Screenshot 1 below and see what it looks like.

With the announcement that Integration Manager now fully supports logging in Logic Apps it becomes very easy to follow the chain of occurred events in your logic apps, enabling you to see the input and output of the different actions which helps you understanding the different logic apps better – read the announcement by clicking here.

The Problem

As you can see in Screenshot 1 above it is pretty hard to understand what the different extractor actions do, isn’t it? It will be a demanding task to learn and understand logic apps by just looking at them in they designer view if they will look like shown in Screenshot 1, since the information provided is not enough – making it hard to understand.

The Solution

What we would like to see is a way of commenting each action in the workflow for better understanding each action being executed. An example would be a comment field  enabling developers to explain what the action does.
