Work Horse Integrations: The Integration Process Experts

Erich Leipold, Managing Partner and Senior Integrator Today's enterprises seek to utilize dynamic and multifaceted applications to enhance productivity and reduce operational costs without applying excessive structural changes. To harness the power of enterprise applications, they require businesses to overcome complex systems integration challenges, both within the organization and outside, while dealing with external partners and customers. Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) bridges the gap between different systems, enabling data flow and providing an interface to manage the information exchange from one program to another. That said, application programming interfaces (APIs) are the key to flexible and secure enterprise application integrations. APIs create value for all the related stakeholders in the value chain by enabling businesses to gain a competitive advantage not only from a consumption point of view but also helps in provisioning and building robust applications. However, enterprises are often hindered by their unwillingness and lack of understanding of API-led development. This is where Work Horse Integrations is carving out a niche for itself. With decades of MuleSoft experience, Work Horse Integrations offers legacy systems integration, modernization consulting, and application integration services through API-led connectivity solutions. The firm's highly experienced professionals deliver best-in-class MuleSoft integration services and complex architectural solutions for IT and legacy business applications in a service-oriented environment. "We offer the expertise to enable digital transformation with companies using MuleSoft products, designing and implementing API-led architecture," adds Erich Leipold, managing partner and senior integrator at Work Horse Integrations.

Work Horse has a long-standing relationship with MuleSoft, which enables it to swiftly enhance a client’s legacy systems with modern Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) and API applications. Work Horse is a specialist in migrating point-to-point integration applications to create a high-performing, robust, and reusable integration architecture to drive new value for customers and employees through API-led connectivity. With years of enterprise project expertise in various industries, including insurance, healthcare, and banking, Work Horse's highly-experienced consultants provide clients with complete project management support and establish an API strategy to support their business strategies.

The firm's consultants closely engage with customers to thoroughly assess their existing business applications and operations in order to build a center for enablement that allows customers to identify and implement the best practices for their enterprise. "We take a customer-centric approach to understand and learn from their business approach to address each particular requirement and execute an API infrastructure that streamlines corporate acquisition and integration efforts," explains Leipold.
Over the years, Work Horse has garnered a reputation as integration process experts, successfully helping companies grow their operations through automation and process efficiency in more than 30 cities throughout the United States, Great Britain, Jamaica, and Barbados. The company's extensive knowledge of the complexities associated with integrating several networked systems allows them to provide customers with industry-standard procedures and practices to quickly get their developers to build and deploy integration applications using MuleSoft products. To further elaborate on Work Horse's proficiency, Leipold cites Work Horse’s association with a large company located in the Mid-West that had planned a complete overhaul of its software application infrastructure and had thousands of applications that supported its business. In addition, the customer also sought a consistent, reliable, and efficient way for their clients to find and consume these applications. Such a large-scale initiative takes decades to be fully implemented with a traditional development strategy and environment. However, Work Horse implemented a MuleSoft framework in just two years that enabled users to develop, test, and monitor the integration environment. The integration process expert provided a platform to the business that minimized the full application development lifecycle and allowed consumption and management of applications as quickly as possible, with minimal latency.

In the current scenario, the explosion of APIs, SaaS applications, and mobile devices has created a massive integration wave resulting in a paradigm shift in IT. As the development model transitions from writing codes to composing APIs together, a new generation of middle-tier application architecture is ‘born’. "With rapid growth in the enterprise application integrations space, we plan to shift from a sub-contractor model to more direct customer engagements. We also aim to continue bringing talented individuals on board to add to our already highly-experienced team," concludes Leipold.
