mbi presents a client / server solution. The client-server communication is platform independent - means the server could run on a Linux system while the client (UI) runs on a Windows system.

The base functionality of the server enables the handling of the processes and the logging. Processes are defined in special workflow language. These workflows consist of Java module calls and internal commands for the control of procedure and processing. Java modules for the transformation, message processing, process automation and connectors are included in the basis system. The client includes functionality for the process monitoring and a Development Framework to test workflows and mappings.

Communication adapter

With the mendelson communication adapters you can connect all your partners - no matter whether they are in the automotive, retail, chemical, energy, transport and logistics or other industries. And all this with the highest security, performance and reliability.
