Avon Technologies Software's integration solutions support EAI projects
in two key ways. First, enterprise application integration solutions
can be built directly using Adapter Manager and adapters. Message transformation
and mapping, routing, and application access can occur rapidly and with
an absolute minimum of custom code, making it easy to integrate disparate
systems. Unlike custom point-to-point integration, Avon Adapter Manager
based solutions can be easily extended to plug into any standards-based
platform as integration architectures evolve to support straight-through
processing initiatives and large-scale Web services deployments. Avon
allows you to get value-added projects into production quickly without
impacting any future platform decision.
Enterprise resource planning (ERP)
These systems provide the information and core services that support
the internal operations of a business. Making these services and this
information available to people without their having to return to their
desktop PC can help improve productivity and reduce costs. Certain vertical
markets have high concentrations of mobile professionals and are already
experiencing improved efficiencies from the use of mobile devices. Some
of those vertical industries and the types of applications they are deploying
Customer relationship management (CRM)
Mobile devices make it easier for account managers to speed the ordering
process by having the latest product inventory levels, features and prices
at their fingertips. Those providing service at a remote customer facility
can automate their invoicing, have ready access to training materials,
and manage schedule changes more effectively, thereby reducing downtime
and wasted trips.
Supply Chain Management (SCM)
Describes the discipline of optimizing the delivery of goods, services
and information from supplier to customer. Typical supply chain management
goals include production schedule streamlining, inventory reduction,
pinpointing of bottlenecks, and efforts to improve order response time.
Companies today are looking to boost operational productivity and performance
while addressing the full range of information requirements throughout
the extended enterprise. Avon provides comprehensive business intelligence
functionality, allowing organizations to leverage any data asset, transform
it into useful information, and deliver it in an actionable format to
a much larger, more distributed scale of users.
Intelligence is more than just delivering reports from a data warehouse.
It's about providing large numbers of people – executives, analysts,
customers, partners, and everyone else – secure and simple access to
the right information so they can satisfy their unique reporting or analysis
requirements, then share that information accordingly. Avon enables your
users to become as self-sufficient and productive as possible. Avon unique
tool set provides reporting, analysis, and advanced data visualization
capabilities that can be embedded in any dashboard, portal, or Web self-service
environment. It also provides information for service-oriented purposes
and for optimizing operational systems.
Web services help users assemble new business processes from existing
applications, but their effectiveness depends on their consistency and
ease of creation. Avon provides simpler creation, management, and deployment
of a consistent Web services layer to ensure successful service oriented
Avon is a wizard-driven Web services adaptation tool that instantly unlocks
software assets as reusable Web services. It enables users to deploy
new applications quickly by reusing back-end systems without the expense
or delay of more complex application integration methods.
Avon helps you maximize your return on existing software investments
by providing rapid service creation, standards-based reusable output,
high-performance deployment, and robust activity monitoring and reporting.
It dramatically lowers the cost of integrating existing software in support
of new application development and deployment.
The enterprise portal has moved beyond its roots in role-based content
management to become a core component of software architecture—the universal
interface for enterprise applications. That puts portal development plans
center stage in overall enterprise technology strategy, and it raises
the stakes for software suppliers to extend deployment and integration
platforms with a standards-based presentation layer. Avon has done portal development for Z-Directory
a Thailand based company.
