Quick and Easy Data Integration with Node-RED
Companies rely upon data from many different internal and external sources to provide a holistic view of the company and make informed decisions. However, data integration can be a challenging task, especially when dealing with multiple data formats, protocols, and sources.
Node-RED’s low code development environment and extensive library of nodes makes it easy for anyone to collect data from different sources, take action on the data and update/store/transmit data to a new service
Challenges of Data Integration
Data comes from different sources, including internal IT systems (ERP, CRM, SCM), IoT devices, external data services (weather, foreign exchange, etc.)
Data is accessible in a wide variety of formats, including CSV files, REST Api, XML, YAML, MQTT.
Access to data is often gated by IT departments making it slow and timing consuming for departments to get access to new integrated data.
Data needs to be stored in different formats and databases.
Data needs to be visualized and communicated back to a user.
Why Node-RED is the
Data Integration Solution
Accessible for Anyone
Node-RED’s low code visual environment makes it easy for non-programmers to integrate data from different sources without needing to know how to code.
Now, departments can work on their own data integration projects without requiring support from IT
Support for Different Protocols
FlowForge makes it possible for teams to collaborate on the same Node-RED flows. Team members can now share the same Node-RED instances to make for quicker and more efficient development of your Node-RED application.
Real-Time Data Visualisation
Node-RED makes it easy to create real-time data visualizations and dashboards. Data in real-time can be filtered, transformed and analyzed through a Node-RED flow.
Support for Different Data Formats
Data is available in many different formats. By default Node-RED supports parsing the following formats: csv, html, json, xml and yaml. Support for other data formats are available from the Node-RED library.
FlowForge Adds DevOps
to Node-RED for Data Integration
FlowForge makes it possible for teams to collaborate on the same Node-RED flows.
Team members can now share the same Node-RED instances to make for quicker and more efficient development of your Node-RED application.
Managed Node-RED Service
FlowForge offers a managed service for running Node-RED instances so you don’t need to worry about the production reliability of your Node-RED application.
Software Delivery Pipelines
FlowForge allows you to create snapshots of Node-RED instances so you can create software delivery pipelines for development > test > production.
It is also possible to revert to a previous version of a snapshot to rollback any changes.
