Iptor launches next generation of open API framework platform – aperio version 2 Available through IBM Partner

Iptor launches next generation of open API framework platform – aperio version 2 Available through IBM Partner
Iptor Supply Chain Systems (Iptor), a leader in supply chain management, planning and logistics software and services, today announced the launch of “aperio version 2” – the next evolution of its open integration platform. aperio has the ability to open up any IBMi infrastructure implementation, providing comprehensive cloud integration and a powerful development studio to release the rich functionality of core ERP systems to a connected world.

As well as being available for Iptor distribution and publishing customers, aperio v2 will be accessible to non-Iptor customers using IBM technology stacks and will be available from the end of February.

The open API architecture consists of 3 layers:
  • a back end which hosts methods and API lifecycle management 
  • a middle layer handling connection pooling, security / authentication, logging and connection monitoring 
  • a front end which hosts HTML 5 rendering. 

Enhanced components include a graphical signature, bank ID to support document and transaction signing, web push notifications to subscribe to and clearly display asynchronous messages coming from the back-end application, a form control to compose email messages and a component to manage calendar events.

Leading Nordic technology business, EVRY, recently decided to use aperio for their integration and connectivity roadmap for ERP TRYGG/2000, developing mobile web applications using the aperio mobile development studio.

Christopher Catterfeld, Chief Marketing Officer at Iptor and a speaker at IBM’s Think 2019, said, “Every global business using the IBMi stack should be looking at aperio version 2 as a way of opening up the rich back end functionality of their ERP system. Our market analysis and customer feedback shows there is nothing available close to aperio in terms of flexibility, integration and connectivity. This provides businesses with the opportunity to get even greater value from their ERP systems in a cloud connected world.”
