FRENDS is a hybrid integration platform based on a distributed agent architecture,with integrated features to enable self-service DevOps integration.
The FRENDS developer experience is a business-centric approach based around BPMN, while maximizing flexibility in integration scenarios.
ALLOW EXPERTS FULL CONTROL OVER INTEGRATIONS
One key aspect of our developer experience is: enabling experts to work unbelievably fast, while still maintaining citizen-integrator capabilities.
TEACH USERS TO BECOME EXPERTS
The FRENDS operational experience is designed to allow you to focus on what's important - maintaining integration and system health, relevant analytical information and on-going change management.
ONLY DISPLAY INFORMATION RELEVANT TO THE USERS ROLE
This is why all configuration and management in FRENDS can be done visually - clicks not code.

As a hybrid integration platform, one of the most important features of FRENDS is toseamlessly connect cloud and on-premise systems and services together.
FRENDS implements this by utilizing our distributed Agent architecture, where one Agent within a selected enviornment is installed on an on-premise server whilst the other is installed in the FRENDS iPaaS cloud.
ON-PREMISE ONLY REQUIRES OUTGOING CONNECTIONS
To ensure that taking advantage of this hybrid technology is as effortless as possible, we've made sure that installing the Agents can be done by a single-click installer and that the Agent only requires outgoing connections to be open from the on-premise.
This enables FRENDS to execute integration flows so that one-part of an integration flow can be executed in the cloud and the other on-premise.
BOTH ON-PREMISE AND CLOUD IN THE SAME INTEGRATION FLOW
The different cloud agents communicate with one-another through the centralized FRENDS hub using a message queue technology, to minimize latency and to ensure that no messages get lost while in transit.
