API Integration

TIDWIT unleashes the exponential power of ecosystems by making it easy, quick and secure to launch cloud ecosystems, connecting them to existing backend systems, and providing automated extensibility, knowledge sharing, and data interchange between partners.

Benefits of Cloud Ecosystem Integration

Seamless interconnectivity is critical for ecosystems to grow and thrive. TIDWIT provides the ability for any organization to launch an ecosystem instance in minutes and integrate it tightly with pre-existing systems where users already are. From there, your organization is empowered to inter-connect instantly to any other partner on the TIDWIT Ecosystems Network, circumventing the hassles, time and costs involved in point-to-point integrations.

The flexibility of the TIDWIT architecture delivers the benefit of tight integration and matches it with unprecedented interconnectivity in scaling a wider, deeper footprint between key alliance partners. TIDWIT is unique in allowing knowledge to flow throughout the ecosystem network to connected partner ecosystems systems and the legacies where their users already are.

 

Integration Scenarios

The TIDWIT architecture supports multiple integration scenarios. For example, content ingestion into a cloud ecosystem on TIDWIT can be fully automated through TIDWIT APIs and/or connectors. The ability to keep content where it already is (e.g. an LMS) and to simply integrate it into the cloud ecosystem instance saves both time and resources. This way, anything that gets added, edited, or retired at the source will be automatically updated on the cloud ecosystem instance and syndicated to all the connected partners with zero additional effort.

 

TIDWIT also supports integration into publisher systems, which may have their own UX. In this scenario, catalogs are pulled into the TIDWIT Cloud Ecosystem Network, distributed to the partner and the UX of the partner is served up by the publisher through an SSO handshake (this process might also include batch processes to ingest the catalogs, content, or interchange metrics).

 

 

Other ecosystem integration scenarios based on a mix of the above approaches can also be deployed utilizing the following tools: APIs, connectors, and processes.

Rest API

The TIDWIT Rest API makes it seamless for existing organizational systems to integrate with TIDWIT to dynamically pull or push content from/to TIDWIT as well as interchange metrics and reports. To access a part of the TIDWIT Rest API, please click here.

LMS Extensibility through Connectors

TIDWIT provides extensibility to pre-existing Learning Management Systems (LMS) to make their integration with partners easier and more scalable.  TIDWIT offers out of the box integrations with tools such as SumTotal, IBM Your Learning, Brainshark, Success Factors, EdX and more.  TIDWIT LMS connectors enable ecosystem cloud instances to either pull or push content together with the respective metrics–extending the life and maximizing usage and ROI of the LMS.

 
 

ECM Extensibility and Cloud Storage Tools Connectors

TIDWIT also provides integration through ad-hoc API connectors to global ECM tools such as Microsoft SharePoint as well as popular cloud storage tools such as OneDrive, Box, Google Drive, IBM Cloud Storage, and Dropbox. This allows for easier management, consolidation, and versioning of source files.
