I’m really happy to welcome Igor Mitrovic on to this week’s episode. Igor is the Managing Director of Proxcellence Netherlands and is also the company’s SAP Integration Specialist. He has more than eight years working with customers on SAP integration. His focus has been all about integration and innovation.
When a customer first approaches Igor and his team the first conversation is about cost-savings and the benefits of moving there systems onto the cloud. After that they begin a process of cataloging the customers back-end systems. They determine if they are going to be exposed to the cloud. Igor then determines what applications need to be exposed outside of the internal network.
“That’s the most important thing that you have to figure out preemptively.” He says.
Proxellence then divides the different connections between those that require encryption and those that do not.
One question that is often asked is whether there are latency issues when adopting HCI. Igor says that the system runs very smooth except in cases where there is a lot of logging. PO is a much more developed product but it is much more difficult to maintain. Deciding which to use very much depends on what the end goal is.
The biggest change coming to the world of cloud integration is the increasing number of customers for this solution. It’s not just big companies anymore. CPI is a simple and easy to understand tool that is great to begin building on.
“From my point of view it’s a really strong tool and they’re really fast at developing it.” He says.
It speaks volumes that the product started only four years ago and is already being used in a production environment. There are gaps and flaws but he has, nevertheless, had a really good experience.
