What are Build and Integration Services? 

Build and Integration services encompass a range of solutions including: 

Systems Integration: merging your existing software applications, databases, and hardware into a unified system

Software Development: Building custom software applications to address specific needs and bridge gaps between existing systems

Data Integration: Consolidating data from various sources into a consistent format, allowing for smoother analysis and informed decision-making

API Integration: Utilizing Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to connect your systems with external applications and services, expanding functionality and reach

What Do We Offer?

Integration Services for 3rd Party Services

In today's software-driven world, applications rarely operate in isolation. Businesses leverage a multitude of third-party services to enhance functionality and cater to specific needs. But connecting these external tools with your internal systems can be a complex task. This is where Build and Integration services for third-party services step in, acting as the invisible handshake between your tech ecosystem and the external world. This specialised area of Build and Integration services focuses on seamlessly connecting your internal systems with functionalities offered by external applications and platforms. It encompasses several key aspects:

  • API Integration:  The cornerstone of this service lies in leveraging APIs (Application Programming Interfaces). APIs act as intermediaries, allowing your systems to communicate and exchange data with third-party services. Imagine them as waiters in a restaurant, taking your order (data request) and delivering the food (data response) from the kitchen (third-party service)
  • Data Mapping & Transformation: Often, data formats between your internal systems and external services differ. Build and Integration experts bridge this gap by mapping and transforming data to ensure seamless exchange and understandingThink of this as the chefs in the restaurant kitchen, preparing the dish (data) following your order specifications
  • Custom Development:  In some cases, pre-built connectors or APIs might not exist for the specific third-party service you require. Build and Integration specialists can develop custom connectors or applications to bridge the gap. This is akin to the restaurant creating a new dish based on your specific dietary needs
Benefits and advantages of using 3rd-Party Services

Enhanced Functionality: Leverage the power and features of external services to expand your application's capabilities without reinventing the wheel. 

Improved Efficiency: Automate data exchange between systems, eliminating manual processes and reducing errors. 

Streamlined Workflows: Create a more cohesive user experience by integrating functionalities from various services. 

Increased Innovation: Unlock new possibilities by combining your internal data with external services and data sources

Manual Testing: The Hands-On Approach

Manual testing involves human testers interacting with the software application to identify defects and assess its usabilityImagine a meticulous chef meticulously tasting every dish before serving it. Here's what manual testing entails:

  • Functional Testing:  Testers verify if the application's functionalities work as intended according to the requirements
  • Usability Testing:  The focus is on evaluating how intuitive and user-friendly the application is. Testers assess if users can navigate and complete tasks without difficulty
  • Compatibility Testing:  This involves verifying if the application functions correctly across different devices, operating systems, and browsers.  
Automated Testing: The Power of Scripts 

Automated testing leverages software tools and scripts to execute a predefined set of test cases.  Here are some key aspects of automated testing:

  • Unit Testing:  Individual software units are tested in isolation to ensure they function as designed
  • Regression Testing:  Automated scripts can re-run critical test cases after every code change, ensuring new features haven't broken existing functionalities
  • Performance Testing:  Automated tools can simulate high traffic scenarios and measure the application's performance under load
