Open Architecture

Open by design, enabling faster, secure integration to your eco-system

finova has created a suite of solutions that have been developed to co-exist within the modern open architectures that we see today. There are a few key principles that underpin this open architecture:

Simple Integrations Icon
Be simple to integrate with
Our solutions expose modern RESTful APIs that facilitate the easy of third party integration, this includes exposing our APIs to orchestration services such Zapier in the form of easily configurable Zapps
API for Life Icon
APIs are for life, not just for show
Our architecture is built upon the same APIs that your eco-system will interact with, they are not just a façade over the services we choose. Integration between the finova components uses the same patterns, APIs and data payloads that you will use, ensuring that your ecosystem is seamlessly integrated into our services, just like our own
Events Icon
Events make everything democratic
The event manager concept within our solutions mean that everyone can be informed the moment something happens, with the associated data payloads to allow them to react in their own way, without recourse to the system publishing the event
Mask Complexity Icon
Mask that complexity
Often open architected systems can just expose everything, leaving the consumer to reconstruct how the APIs should be called, we mask this through business consumable APIs to simplify any integration
Data Icon
Data is key
The safe and secure management, transport and audit of data into and out of the system is a primary principle
API First Icon
API first
With our newer systems, we lead with an API first design principle to ensure that our systems are as open as possible

The mechanisms and patterns for integration come and go, we have created an architecture that is able to insulate our systems and any consuming services through that by providing API Gateways into and out of the system that can flex as the business and technical demands change
