Integrations can be done efficiently with IPaaS tools. Quickly set up point-to-point connectors, add logic and orchestration, and the integration is done and configured. The difficulty comes with more custom and bespoke systems. For example, when custom fields are added to an ERP or CRM, when you need to integrate with a legacy system, or when there is no connector to interact with. Linx can assist in cases where high flexibility and customization are required.

Generating files for data extracts, reporting and even data migration is a crucial part of any back-end team. A typical data team will have to generate many files to be sent to various clients or consumers inside or outside of the organisation.
