5 benefits to MFT integration with your ESB

If your organization already uses webMethods Integration Server, the #1 ESB, that’s great! Smart move! Have you taken advantage of webMethods ActiveTransfer for Managed File Transfer? If not, read on …

If your organization moves files around internally or externally using FTP, homegrown solutions, or a hodge podge of file transfer point solutions, then you likely know the headaches of managing file transfers these ways – whether it’s security and auditability concerns with FTP, increasingly complex and hard to maintain homegrown solutions, or hard to manage set non-integrated point solutions.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have your file transfer solutions be seamlessly integrated into your ESB? Using webMethods ActiveTransfer for MFT plus webMethods Integration Server for your ESB provides you with this integration. Here are some advantages to the webMethods MFT + ESB approach:

1. Common user interface

Manage your entire integration infrastructure and file transfers from a common UI based on My webMethods. This means your existing webmethods skills will transfer to the webMethods Managed File Transfer solution. Compare this to non-integrated point solutions which require multiple user interfaces to manage.

2. Integrated BPM and file processing

Use webMethods Integration Server services to invoke business processes based on file transfer events and leverage Integration Server services to perform various file processing actions. Compare this to non-integrated systems where manual steps must be taken to integrate with business processes or to process files.

3. Integrated B2B file content processing

Invoke webMethods Trading Networks to process the content of files. Like ActiveTransfer, Trading Networks is seamlessly integrated with Integration Server. Compare this to separate point solutions that treat data from file transfer and B2B data separately.

4. Integrated notifications

Publish notifications to webMethods Broker and JMS based on file transfer events. Compare this with other solutions that require manual polling or manual inspection to determine if file transfer events have occurred.

5. Achieve high availability for your file transfers

Because ActiveTransfer runs on Integration Server, you can benefit from the rock solid high availability capabilities of the underlying platform. Compare this to homegrown or point solutions with questionable availability and resilience.

These 5 benefits only scratch the surface of the potential of integrating file transfers with your ESB. Go to softwareag.com/mft to learn more about webMethods ActiveTransfer, Software AG’s Managed File Transfer solution.
