As a result, companies are faced with several ‘integration challenges’, including
- establishing reliable and secure communication between internal and external systems;
- automating business processes across solutions;
- preserving the ‘speed of innovation’ when IT needs to focus entirely on keeping things running.
Handling integration complexity
The integration of business applications often flows from an enterprise architecture exercise. It needs to take several levels of complexity into account:
- Technological: on premise, hybrid, or SaaS
- Stakeholders: employees, clients, government agencies, subcontractors, partners etc.
- A plethora of applications, each with their own protocols.

Our approach: Integration as a Service
To handle integration complexity and boost business efficiency, the integration team at delaware has developed a customized methodology. The main features of our approach are:
- A step-by-step method with clear priorities to tackle time and budget restraints.
- A thorough assessment of needs and objectives.
- Frequent ‘synchronization’ sessions to enable further optimization.
- A ‘master view’ to keep track of the whole.
- Close collaboration and involvement of the client.
- Thorough automated and regression testing.
- Use of pre-developed accelerators based on experience and end-to-end process expertise.
The year is 2015. Only a handful of people, a small office in the heart of Budapest and one dream. The dream to establish the globally already recognized brand of delaware on the Hungarian market and win not only the respect and recognition of the local customers, but their hearts as well. During these years, the current teams have emerged: our Infrastructure Team focusing mainly on the Eastern European market, our Digital Team working on fascinating .NET based CMS and CRM projects and our SAP Team providing expertise to the international efforts as well as gaining more and more ground within the circle of the other ERP consultancy companies in the country.
Over the past decades, the internet has become an essential part of our lives and its use in the corporate environment is also constantly expanding. Outstanding among these is the use of the Cloud, which is also one of the main strategic pillars for SAP. Although the ever-expanding range of cloud-based services has been available within SAP since 2012, logistics and most of all warehousing logistics has been so far less open towards this area.
However, the general growing trust in the direction of the Cloud and in many cases the applications that are only available through the Cloud platform have also led to a more open mindset in this industry as well. The SAP integration of transport (TM – Transport Management) and warehouse logistics (EWM - Extended Warehouse Management) already contains many process improvement and optimization elements, but the use of the Cloud expands the range of possibilities further.
Most of us like standard solutions due to how fast, easy, and effective they are. Then how is it even possible that not everybody chooses this option? Every company has its very own, unique business need and at delaware we know perfectly well that there are special cases — and special customers — who will require a completely unique solution to suit them perfectly. This was the case with Joris Ide as well.
