Integration with external systems
Modern enterprise applications and their data sources are rarely self-contained. Integration protocols and interoperability standards federate the data that is traditionally locked away in legacy systems of record, so that you can design applications that link multiple physically distributed resources. Pega Platform™ provides a comprehensive range of data and integration capabilities that simplify the task of connecting your application to these distributed resources and enable easy, flexible, and real-time access to the rich data that they store.
Integration is a broad subject that applies to many aspects of Pega Platform. Pega Platform natively supports a range of integration standards and communication protocols, allowing you to focus on the business requirements of your application rather than on connectivity issues. For more information, see the following articles. For integration on Pega Cloud, see Integration in your Pega Cloud environment.
