IFS Connect is an integration broker, designed for XML and web services. It can be used to facilitate integration of business logic with external business processes, applications, and devices.
The openness and flexibility of IFS Connect is achieved through the concept of transport connectors. Transport Connectors provide the connectivity between external devices/applications and IFS Connect. They provide protocol and data format conversion between IFS Cloud internal XML format and external formats. For example, the Mail connector translates to MIME format and SMTP protocol. The connectors are hosted by a framework that provides services such as SOAP enveloping and XML transformation.
