Integration solutions

M3 has a significant support for asynchronous integration with third-party solutions through an integration layer known as the M3 Application Program Interface (API) layer. M3 contains more than 6000 different API transactions making a large part of the M3 business logic directly accessible by other applications. External client’s access M3 APIs through the REST API interface via the API Gateway or ION API and using OAuth 2.

The recommended solution for retrieval of larger amounts of data and data synchronizations to external systems are data retrieval through Infor Data Lake. Infor Data Lake is continuously updated by M3 and its data is close to real time. Additional information can be found in the ION Development Guide, chapter 15 Data Lake queries and in this KB 2186646.
