Middleware should be more than mapping data from one data source to another. Unless you can manipulate that data there are many restrictions on what can be done. EASYProcess allows for very complex rules to be applied to data moving through an application. Orchestration is the name used for the manipulation of this data. A developer can adjust date formats, currency formats, and any mathematical calculation. Decisions can be made on that data and alerts or emails sent. Comparisons of all kinds can be made against data from any system within your enterprise. A growing list of these services is available here.
Orchestration of data in EASYProcess happens within a very user-friendly, graphical interface. Familiar flow chart icons are used to build the data flow with all of the necessary decision-making branching. The programmer drags and drops these elements onto the page and connects them in the direction that the logic requires. Your business rules are fleshed out in a straightforward, easy to follow, format. K-Rise Systems' developers demonstrate this orchestration during our live webinars and conferences; a task that would normally take a programmer much longer than one hour to complete.

What is Orchestration?
Orchestration has become a word to describe the manipulation of data using a more graphically driven user interface. The EASYProcess orchestration is very flexible, allowing for the inclusion of any business rule at any point in an application. Programmers learning EASYProcess are able to begin building basic orchestration after a day of training and are soon producing very complex processes.
One way to understand this concept of orchestration is to imagine the place order button in a web store (EASYCommerce). When the customer clicks that button, it begins a long progression of tasks that must be completed with the data sitting in the shopping cart. The rule that manipulates this data and pushes it into your ERP to create the sales order is the orchestration. The individual, step by step tools that manipulate the data are called services.
