Real-Time Data and UI Integrations
So far, we have looked at batch integrations that run either on a schedule or are triggered to run by some event, and then process whole batches of records. These jobs all center around data movements—moving data from some source, transforming it, and then loading it into Salesforce. Depending on your business requirements, this may not be the best solution for your users. In this chapter, we examine some alternatives to batch integrations, with a focus on real-time integrations. Remember, this is a patterns and practices book, so I do not focus on the details of how to implement them; I want to make you aware of your options and point you in the right direction.
