Epic is our enterprise level integration solution that offers B2B integration and Managed File Transfer. Designed specifically for large corporations with high traffic environments, Epic lets you integrate internal systems, business processes and trading partners.
High-performance solution, for high-performance enterprises:
Load balancing and high throughput
The ability to distribute processes across multiple machines and to then dynamically assign work to them creates an environment of very flexible load balancing. Assigning a priority level to tasks ensures that high priority tasks are processed first, no matter how great the workload of the system as a whole.
Resource on demand
EPIC uses a high performance and scalable database which, combined with Epic’s own scalability, allows it to handle the most demanding of high volume scenarios. The Resource on Demand concept ensures that your company is futureproof, taking away the need to invest in new software / hardware as your business grows.
OFTP2 – Certified by ODETTE
Epic is fully compliant with the OFTP2 specification. It has also been certified by ODETTE (the European EDI standards body) as being fully compatible and interoperable with other ODETTE-certified OFTP2 solutions.
Data security is as important as external defence which is why, using highly secure digital certificates in conjunction with the security capable protocols OFTP2, AS2 and S-FTP together with SSL access, EPIC users have all the security benefits of a highly secure private network.
Business activity monitoring
The Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) dashboard provides information on key performance indicators, giving assurance and visibility of activity and performance. The BAM dashboard gives a graphical representation of data flowing through the EPIC system.
Business process management
Epic uses workflows to give you complete control when integrating your systems. Workflows let you perform custom business logic processing such as encrypting documents, sending emails, calling other applications etc.
Comprehensive protocol support
Epic Connectors include all of the major methods for communicating with Trading Partners, including AS2, SFTP, FTP, Email, OFTP, MQ Series and OFTP2. Epic Connectors provide robust communication links and use delivery receipts to provide confirmation of delivery of your files.
Epic supports most common EDI syntaxes, including SAP IDoc, ODETTE, EDIFACT, ANSI X12, EANCOM, TRADACOM, XML and VDA, and also allows the use of user-defined flat files and delimited files. EPIC also validates XML files against an XML schema and verifies the digital signature of signed content.
EPIC’s Integrators are a set of standard tools that interface directly with most back office systems, such as Oracle and SAP. By utilising Epic’s Data Transformers, the Integrators can actively retrieve and post data into the back office system, providing an extra level of integration and achieving the close union of systems that you require.
Distributed Processing – 100% Availability
Epic makes the dream of 100% system availability a reality by distributing the application and dynamically re-allocating the workload. Designed with a distributed architecture, each aspect of Epic’s functionality has been split into component tasks that can operate simultaneously from different machines in the local or wide area network. Epic monitors each task on each machine to ensure it is operational and, in the event of a failure, the workload will be automatically re-assigned to another operational machine.
With Epic’s distributed architecture, the primary and backup site can be included in a single implementation model. In the event of a major incident at the primary site, Epic will automatically migrate operations to the backup site. Once the issue at the primary site has been resolved it will be automatically reinstated.
