ATLANTA, Nov. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Liaison Technologies, a recognized leader in cloud-based integration and data management solutions, today announced the release of ALLOY Edge, a lightweight, on-premises cloud connector that is designed to securely connect internal data that resides behind company firewalls to the award-winning Liaison ALLOY™ Platform and enable more agile integration and data management operations. A fully managed service, ALLOY Edge uses modern technology to allow companies to benefit from Liaison's data Platform as a Service (dPaaS) solution while retaining the value of their internal legacy applications.
"Companies that rely on data stored in internal legacy applications for solutions like cloud-based CRM and marketing automation often have difficultly moving data that resides in backend silos to the ALLOY Platform so that they can take full advantage of its data integration and management functions and microservices suite," said Shabih Syed, Director of Product Management at Liaison. "With ALLOY Edge, companies can securely connect to the cloud, which means they can be more agile and innovative without compromising data integrity and security."
Data silos can be a significant problem for companies whose IT teams are working diligently to protect data stored behind an organization's firewall. For example, a sales team that uses the popular Salesforce cloud solution might hit a wall when trying to access internal product or pricing information that resides on legacy applications behind the company firewall. With ALLOY Edge, they can securely connect to the cloud and consolidate their data, completing a proposal or moving a product to market more quickly.
Based on mature technology that has been tested at scale for more than a decade as well as advanced web technologies that enable a secure API driven interface, ALLOY Edge is fully configurable and can be managed remotely. That means customers who use ALLOY Edge get the advantage of a fully managed solution so that they can focus on using data to develop and sell products, expand market share and innovate rather than devoting resources to data integration and management operations.
ALLOY Edge is available now to be installed on customer premises and does not require access through a virtual private network, using an advanced, secure web interface instead to push data to the cloud platform. A lightweight deployment, ALLOY Edge is an out-of-the-box connector to the ALLOY Platform and is available as an add-on component to Liaison customers, whether they use the Core, Premium or Elite pricing tier for the ALLOY Platform.
By using ALLOY Edge, Liaison customers can view data via the ALLOY Platform, gaining end-to-end visibility for troubleshooting, business monitoring and insight from data transactions from multiple sources. With this lightweight, on-premises device enabling a secure cloud connection to the ALLOY Platform and integration of in-house data repositories, businesses that use ALLOY Edge can operate more agilely and move more quickly toward a data-inspired future.
