Integration Overview

dcLINK® enables uninterrupted data collection, data validation, and transaction
submission as part of the work process, which allows warehouse, shop floor, and field
personnel to complete their jobs while data is seamlessly updated in Oracle’s JD
Edwards EnterpriseOne. Data is captured and validated as workhappens, resulting in
more accurate and timely reporting.
dcLINK’s real-time validation and update of Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne
enforces business process compliance on a mobile, paperless platform. Flexible
transaction work flows improve productivity. The solution operates on a wide variety
of mobile devices, including handheld, vehicle-mount, fixed, and cellular-enabled
mobile computers. dcLINK accepts data input via RFID, barcode, voice, mobile
applications, and automated machine interfaces.

Integration Details

The advanced architecture of dcLINK provides proven integration with enterprise
software, as well as the flexibility to match existing business processes. Data entry
errors are eliminated, as data is captured using RFID, bar code, and voice inputs, and
then validated using OLE-compliant connections to enterprise database tables. The
user is notified immediately of invalid data. Validated transactions are submitted
using synchronous or asynchronous communication.
Using XML or API integration with Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne,
un-modified master business functions are called to complete the transaction.

Enterprise application messages are returned to the user device and written to a
transaction log. If the enterprise software or network connection to the enterprise
server is unavailable, dcLINK validates data against secondary, replicated data
sources so that mission-critical operations can continue without interruption. Queued
transactions are then processed in sequence according to transaction dependencies
when the enterprise server is available.
