Enterprise integration is a key part of building applications that connect to other applications and data. At Enkay, we have implemented solutions for our customers using Microsoft Azure Integration Services (AIS), which includes API Management, Logic Apps, Service Bus, and Event Grid. AIS helps our customers connect applications and data seamlessly to the cloud for services such as machine learning, cognitive services, robotic process automation (RPA), internet of things (IoT) and analytics, enabling increased enterprise-wide visibility and agility. Gartner has positioned Microsoft as a leader in the 2020 EiPaaS Magic Quadrant, based on Microsoft’s ability to execute and completeness of their vision. Microsoft has now remained an EiPaaS MQ leader for the past three years. Read the complete report here.
We implemented a Chat BOT for a major midwestern insurance company. The following link describes the use case and the benefits of having a conversational Chat BOT to help improve customer service. The Lien BOT was developed using Microsoft BOT framework version 4.7 and uses dynamic cards, carousels, triggers, interrupts and hero cards.
We recently completed an internet of things (iot) project that allowed users to provision a controller using HMI (Human Machine Interface) that was hosted within a Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS) cluster. This allowed engineers to setup a controller before they went to the field to configure it. The controller HMI in the cloud was connected using Azure iot hub to on premise controller hardware that contained a PostgreSQL database. The controller PostgreSQL database in the controller hardware was the master, which would keep data in a remote PostgreSQL cloud database via events. More details can be found here.

Until BizTalk 2016, there was no direct way to communicate with Azure Blob storage to send files. Hence, we had to use WCF-WebHttp adapter to send files to the blob storage. It also required us to write a custom pipeline component to strip the filename from the file path (example – “file.txt” from “c:\files\file.txt” ) before sending it to Azure Blob storage else the file name in Azure blob storage would end up being “c:\files\file.txt” instead of just “file.txt”. However, BizTalk Server 2020 comes in with a built in Azure Blob Storage adapter using which you can directly communicate with the blob storage. This also eliminates the need for a custom pipeline.

To integrate business partners who do not use CargoWise One (CW1) with your CW1 system, it’s best to have an integration solution in place.
Enkay delivered another App In A Day (AIAD) Training at Microsoft Technology Center in Chicago on May 1st, 2019. Attendees learnt how to build a canvas and model driven applications using PowerApps, Flow, and Common Data Services. We had good customer representation, and discussed several real-world use cases where PowerApps could be used to build mobile apps that improve productivity and automate business processes. #PowerApps #Flow #dynamics365 #office365 #sharepointonline
We implemented a cloud only EDI solution for a customer looking for a B2B solution to connect to their trading partners and shippers. The solution allowed the customer to quickly deploy an EDI AS2 transactions without having to invest in on premise infrastructure or software licenses. Instead, we used cloud hosted integration accounts and logic apps, so the customer only has to pay for what they use based on a subscription model.

We recently completed a security project for our customer using Azure and IoT. The device/controller had to always boot securely using Variscite HAB, and we used Azure storage to securely store key and other device configuration details.
