Welcome to GLU
GLU Global is a Specialist Integration Team that creates value through simplified connections
Born in Emerging Markets
GLU.Ware™ is an Integration Platform that is built for the Emerging Markets. It brings systems together to create value faster by cutting cost, simplifying, and accelerating integration projects. GLU.Ware is fundamentally about enabling Business Agility.
Client Self Sufficiency
A ‘configuration over code’ principle underpins the design of GLU.Ware™. No programming skills are needed as Systems Analysts can configure transactions via the GLU.Console. The outcome of the configuration work is a compiled GLU.Engine. The GLU.Engine is deployed by the Client within their ecosystem and security control boundary. This establishes the integrated ecosystem including all connections, transactions and orchestrations, previously achieved through tedious and expensive software development.
Software as a Service
GLU.Ware™ solves the cost and time to market challenges of traditional systems integration approaches. The business case for new services is typically burdened by large integration CAPEX and associated OPEX costs. GLU.Ware is offered on a ‘pay-as-you-go, pay-as-you-grow’ (SaaS) cost model which eliminates the CAPEX barrier to adoption while encouraging experimentation.
GLU.Ware - Simplifying the Business of Expansion
The ability to empower your own Analysts with the ability to implement and maintain your own integrated ecosystem is now possible with GLU.Ware. Built with the objective of 'Client Self-Sufficiency' GLU.Ware has been designed and built from the ground up with a view to simplifying the murky world of system integration.
The GLU.Console™ is the ‘brain’ of GLU.Ware. It provides the ability for an Analyst to rapidly configure integrations via a GUI. There is no need for expensive and scarce development skills! The outcome of the configuration work is a compiled component called the GLU.Engine™. It is deployed by the Client within their ecosystem i.e. within their operational and security control boundary. This establishes the integrated ecosystem including all connections, transactions and orchestrations, previously achieved through tedious, expensive software development.
Clients can expose Open APIs to the market behind which a multitude of Internal and external 3rd Party systems can be integrated. Alternatively, Clients have the ability to create Bespoke APIs to uniquely match the existing APIs of specific Initiating Systems. In this model the need for any changes to those upstream system APIs is eliminated and time to market is accelerated.
The GLU.Engine performs the required Protocol Translation between Initiating Systems and Receiving Systems. Parameter Validation on all inbound messages can be applied so as to filter out spurious messages thus protecting the downstream ecosystem. Rules configuration enables the GLU.Engine to perform transaction flow Orchestration by running inflight rules to route messages based on their respective parameters. Enrichment of message parameter sets is achieved by adding static parameters within the GLU.Engine or from data received from any step in the flow.
