WHAT’S NEW:

DISTRIBUTED ARCHITECTURE: Greatly improved reliability, security & scalability

Sometimes it can be a challenge to monitor all processes at once. This is why we are introducing the Cluster page view. It provides an overview of all integration processes managed by the application instance.

Dividing Qorus interfaces into separate processes brings much improved system reliability and resiliency. Communication between cluster elements is provided by the ZeroMQ library, adding a high-performance distributed queue layer for reliable information exchange.

As we take security measures very seriously, private network communication is encrypted with an elliptic curve encryption scheme ensuring a high level of performance and security.

HOW THIS WORKS IN PRACTICE:

In a nutshel, isolating interfaces into separate processes allows for very high reliability of integration services, as no single erroneous interface can bring down the platform as a whole. Qorus Integration Engine®’s application cluster implementation provides increased control and significantly improves the overall stability of the platform.

GREATLY IMPROVED UI: Process transparency, automatic error handling & cost-reduction features in a single overview!

For achieving operational excellence you need perfect clarity. Qorus Integration Engine® 4.0’s dashboard is designed to provide high-level business-relevant status reporting and additionally highlights ongoing issues in the integration environment so that potential problems can be addressed proactively before they have a chance to impact revenue.

HOW THIS WORKS IN PRACTICE:

Feature #1: TRANSPARENCY
New UI provides a managerial overview of the integration environment and allows more technical users to do a deep dive into the details of configuration and data, including GDPR-compliant sensitive data handling for authorized users.

Feature #2: REAL-TIME OVERVIEW
Shows all a live view of all areas of integration processing. New UI is updated immediately when the status changes in the integration environment. This feature allows you to quickly plan and act with confidence using real-time status information

Feature #3: TRACK SAVINGS AND PREDICT COSTS. FASTER. EASIER. BETTER.
As a special ‘bonus’ Qorus Integration Engine® 4.0 highlights the business value of using the platform by reporting automated error recovery (a key feature of our integration platform) in terms of a concrete value in desired currency. This new feature communicates the overall effectiveness of the solution with a visual representation of the money saved through automatic error recovery.

NATIVE JAVA SUPPORT: Ease of customization & source code transparency for an unrivaled DevOps experience!

Don’t let your developers drown in code! Qorus 4.0. introduces complete support for JAVA, allowing easy customization of integration objects in a standard programming language.

HOW THIS WORKS IN PRACTICE:

JAVA support is meant to address customer concerns about using a standard programming language for customizing interface code, making it easier to find development resources by allowing the large pool of JAVA developers to work on Qorus Integration Engine® 4.0

See Developing in Java for more information.

REUSABLE CUSTOM SOLUTIONS: Extensible building blocks for re-usable, user-driven solutions.

Besides the ease of use and tailor-made solution for our customers, we have some great news for our partners: we have enabled Extensible building blocks for re-usable, user-driven solutions.
Qorus 4.0. introduces integrated partner API to enable our SI partners to build integration solutions on top of Qorus and reuse/remodel them for other customers to solve specific integration challenges. 
On the customer side, interface object configuration item support enables end-users to control the runtime behavior of Qorus interfaces and to eliminate the need for further development.

HOW THIS WORKS IN PRACTICE:

Each new solution, pre-defined by customer needs, can be easily placed on top of Qorus by method of simplified development through our building-block architecture. Whenever a new customer would face a similar issue this module can be re-used with only slight changes so you don’t have to do it from ground 0 every time.
