A FinancialForce integration to Magento eCommerce can enable a scalable infrastructure for delivering personalized service, along with customized support and customer interaction. Setting up an integration between FinancialForce and Magento
eCommerce can be very challenging in order to establish the optimal configuration within the respective frameworks. This includes the business logic, the workflows, as well as the technical architecture to ensure that the application
integration will run smoothly and effectively. To safeguard a favorable outcome with your FinancialForce integration to Magento eCommerce, we highly recommend that you work with a partner with demonstrated success in delivering excellent
results on similar integrations with what your business needs. An added qualification is experience within similar industries or concepts that your business requires, while possessing the ability to expertly configure and work with both
FinancialForce and Magento.
From a setup and configuration perspective, Magento eCommerce uses the Magento web API framework and FinancialForce uses REST API endpoints. These endpoints have the ability to expose essentially any of the core or custom entities and fields
within sales of FinancialForce and Magento eCommerce. Although all these fields are available, it's important to follow best practices with regard to business logic so that you can ensure the full advantages of building capabilities and
FinancialForce imaging into Magento. That's why we advise you to collaborate with a partner who has considerable experience with these applications and possesses the necessary skills to deliver capabilities that match up to your company’s
usage of FinancialForce and Magento eCommerce.
In addition, the integration platform itself needs to be reliable, scalable, adaptive, and customizable to your specific needs. For a business that's growing, scaling, and offering continual updates or improvements to its automation, it’s
critical that the integrating application, such as Clarity Connect, can deliver customizability on a per-job basis. A job is commonly defined as an integration task. For example, syncing accounts from FinancialForce into Magento eCommerce is
a particular job, and pulling product data from FinancialForce with regards to inventory and pricing is another job. These jobs, also called tasks, can either update in real-time or near real-time within Magento eCommerce.
In order to do that effectively, it's vital that the integration platform has a scalable and robust architecture that's securely connected to the FinancialForce REST API and the Magento web API framework. This ensures that security and
scalability are intact while running jobs are persistent. In many cases, it's best practice to make the tasks queue-based or have them follow some kind of persistence model that can log and report back if there are any issues. In the event of
problems, the tasks should keep trying until successfully completed. It's also of importance to be able to scale and enable redundancy so that in the occurrence of a high load, excess traffic, or elevated usage, the resources can scale up in
order to handle the situation. The feature of redundancy comes handy when there’s an outage, as the infrastructure can leverage backup and failover redundancies to continue processing the integrations.
