With the deployment of Costpoint’s cloud offering, there comes a shift in connection mentality. Historically, people have simply used SQL to write data directly into the Costpoint database. This required a very special skillset and a strong working knowledge of the database tables and fields. Putting invalid data in to the database is a risky process.
To alleviate this risk, Deltek provides a Web Integration Console (WIC). A window into the world of Costpoint, in which data can be automatically sent to Costpoint being validated along the way. This is a giant leap forward for automation and integration capabilities between Deltek and other systems.
However, like any new system, there is little information around the interworking of this service and even fewer best practices out there. While there are a lot of IT companies that specialize in API integration, there are few with the working knowledge of the Costpoint WIC.
We are posting this blog for users, developers and Deltek customers to share their questions, help answer questions and share solution best practices as you venture down this path. We will periodically post our success and failures in our LinkedIn Forum in hopes that you all will do the same. Together we can make this a better experience.
