integrationlayer

IntegrationLayer

The PowerApp IntegrationLayer is a middleware that enables you to integrate third-party systems, partners and processes with the powercloud. This integration layer acts as a framework and allows us to flexibly map all technically possible integrations. The IntegrationLayer already comes with several applications that can be deployed quickly and flexibly after consultation with customers

e-invoice

E-Invoice

In accordance with the ZUGFeRD and X-Invoice standards, you can use our E-Invoice PowerApp to transform your invoices and have them sent to your customers automatically. For this purpose, E-Invoice uses the invoice PDF or XML created by powercloud, as well as the data available in the system, in order to enable you to use electronic invoicing without media discontinuity.

By applying the EN16931 schema of version 2.1 of the electronic invoice, our solution is also equipped for requirements that go beyond the mandatory part and can therefore also meet more extensive requirements.

datasync

Datasync

The Datasync PowerApp offers a simple and secure connection to the Powercloud databases and provides the basis for using the data in third-party systems such as PowerAnalytics.

Your data is initially loaded and updated by means of Change Data Capturing (CDC) and thus alwaysremains up-to-date.

For data storage and processing, we use AWS S3 and Redshift, which run exclusively on European servers (AWS Region EU-Central (Frankfurt)) in compliance with DSGVO. Secure access is providedby a VPN (Virtual Private Network), which allows persons of your choice to access the data.

The data stored in this way can also be linked to external data sources, for example to createdependencies and connections between data records.

power analytics

PowerAnalytics

The PowerApp PowerAnalytics combines several functions that allow the user to accumulate, analyzeand graphically present the data provided by the Datasync.

  • PowerBI
    For the graphical processing of the data we use PowerBI (Microsoft), which comes with a set ofstandard reports. In cooperation with our customers, these reports are continuously developed further, whereby everyone always benefits from the further developments. In addition, a section forcustomized reports is under development to meet special requirements.
  • Direct data access
    If the “normal” functions of PowerAnalytics are not enough for you and your power users have furtherrequirements, we can also set up access options to the database area on request. Here you can createyour own queries via SQL (JDBC/ODBC).
  • Reporting Delivery
    As an additional option, Reporting Delivery is an automated, configurable and scheduled system forcreating customized and standard reports. Reports are stored in target directories on a scheduled basis. In addition, used SQL queries are stored in the customer area of the database, allowing reports to begenerated on demand.
  • Database Snapshot
    If you want to “freeze” your data on a specific date, such as for a year-end closing, the databasesnapshot is the solution you are looking for. If desired, this snapshot can also be integrated intoPowerBI as a separate instance for further analysis.

power OPM interactive

The power:OPM interactive solution offers completely new possibilities for creating customizedcorrespondence out of powercloud with a flexible and at the same time secure end-to-end process. Your powercloud users can interactively edit documents using the web editor, which has beenspecially developed and optimized for this purpose and is already in use by over 100,000 users.

Your customers and their concerns are individual. In order to achieve a high level of customer loyalty, it therefore also requires individual communication tailored to them. This is when power:OPMinteractive comes into play and reveals its full strength. Through the seamless integration inpowercloud, the required data (recipient data, contract data,…) is transferred with the push of a buttonand the document is made available for individual editing in the modern WYSIWYG editor ofpower:OPM interactive. This saves time and avoids errors compared to conventional methods withWord templates or copy & paste.

The integrated guide leads through the entire editing process and ensures, together with functionssuch as the insertion of reusable modules and automatic spell checking, that powercloud users not only reach their goal fast but also safely. In addition, process security can be ensured by configuringthe editor and setting editing permissions. To send out the customer correspondence the powerclouduser simply selects the desired channel and is done with the editing. power:OPM interactive thenensures the delivery to the output channels, including e-mail, print, SMS, portal or archive.

power:OPM interactive is available as a cloud solution and can be used as an extension of thepower:OPM solution or as a standalone solution.

Further solutions with powercloud connection

Using the order importer, your sales partners can store standardized CSV files on the SFTP server, which are recognized and read in fully automatically by the importer. When the data is read in, it is processed and transferred to the powercloud, and a log file is created for the user for tracking purposes.

In order to integrate your business processes securely with the powercloud, the API interfaces can be released selectively and individually via the API management. This allows you to control which process / partner gets access to which APIs and even to which content. Additionally, partners can receive your dedicated credentials to ensure maximum security and control.

The GLOBE interface provides the reports from the Globe module of the powercloud in a downloadable format. You can configure the layout of the files created in this way according to your wishes, for example, to display them in a familiar layout. Basic calculations are also possible, e.g. to provide gross / net amounts.

The SFTP server is the basis of several functions, such as the order importer or the GLOBE interface, to exchange and store files securely and efficiently between systems. As a cloud storage, this solution is highly available, scalable and secured via current authentication methods. If desired, additional configurations and setups can be added to the included users to best integrate the server into your business processes.

As an extension of the order importer, a confirmation procedure can be started via e-mail verification. Here, the customer is asked for confirmation and, if necessary, also for his explicit consent to use his e-mail. The communication can be controlled via a template that can be customized by the user.
