NEW YORK, March 29, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- IntraLinks, the leading provider of critical information exchange solutions, today announced the availability of complementary integration technologies that enable organizations to more easily and securely extend the reach of their enterprise applications outside of their firewall. These technologies, consisting of IntraLinks APIs, the IntraLinks Integration Adapter and IntraLinks Connectors, will increase corporate efficiency by allowing various systems to seamlessly share information and deliver new business processes faster while reducing the cost of application development.
- IntraLinks API is a comprehensive development interface to the IntraLinks environment that allows for the management and control of content, users, sessions and system administration. Developed on Representational State Transfer (REST) architecture, IntraLinks APIs are web services ready and used extensively by IntraLinks development teams to create applications. - The IntraLinks Integration Adapter is a client-side .NET application that uses XML-based file messaging to enable communications between IntraLinks and client-based applications. These adapters will become a powerful component of an organization's open and flexible technology infrastructure. - IntraLinks Connectors integrate IntraLinks with the APIs of other complementary systems including Microsoft SharePoint. This extends the use cases for those systems, enabling firms to maximize existing software investments. Packaged services include file transfer, permissioning users, reporting and workflow.
The idea here is to go beyond virtual data rooms, which offer secure sharing of documents outside of institutions' firewalls, to integrate with enterprise systems such as SharePoint for greater depth of business insight, said Rik Turner, Senior Analyst at Ovum. The offering is clearly applicable in the financial services arena but also in any other vertical where secure collaboration between companies is required.
IntraLinks' new integration capabilities allow our customers to securely communicate with other enterprise applications such as Enterprise Content Management, Collaboration and CRM systems, said Fahim Siddiqui, executive vice president of product development and operations for IntraLinks. These integration solutions will enable businesses to extend the use cases for both the IntraLinks solutions and other existing enterprise solutions while reducing the effort and cost required to do so.
IntraLinks provides on-demand solutions for businesses to securely collaborate, communicate and exchange critical information inside and outside the enterprise. For more than a decade, 750,000 professionals from more than 90,000 organizations have relied on IntraLinks to accelerate workflow, optimize business processes and realize new profit potential.
