Key Capabilities of the Opus Platform
TraceLink's Opus platform is a low code development environment for creating network-building multienterprise applications. The platform has many unique capabilities that enable the creation of a "network of networks".
Shared Apps Create Networks
Multienterprise applications built on Opus link companies, people, processes and systems together in a network built around a common business purpose.
Companies, and people within those companies, can either be network owners or trade partners, depending on the role, policy, and assignment definitions established in the multienterprise application.
The Opus Platform provides all of the security, role definition and assignment, and policy definitions that you need to securely manage application and data access across teams, and it’s built on a highly scalable cloud architecture.
A Process Network consists of the companies and locations that are linked together in a multienterprise applications, each with specific roles and access rights.
Each multienterprise app has at least one Process Network.
A Process Network consists of the app owner and the linked entities which the app Owner has shared their application.
A Process Team is the end user membership of the app Owner and a specific linked entity in the Process Network, each with specific roles and app experiences. Teams are comprised of the specific people who have membership on a link between company and partner and location.
Process Teams bring people together from both inside and outside the enterprise to share one digital version of the truth specific to a business process. Both sides share the same information, the same context, and can work collaboratively together for a shared business purpose.
Share Data and Processes
Process Messages & Workflows refers to the unique way data is shared across the network. Process Messages are based on a canonical meta data model that defines attributes and relationships of the business objects and data elements received, which then maps that data into a format that can be understood by each network partner.
Process Messages includes customizable metadata models and customizable workflows integrated with relationships across the full metadata for all apps. It includes native multienterprise permissioning that supports simultaneous owner and partner access to the same messages, with built in indexing and search driven from annotations in the metadata model.
Not all companies are created equal. Other multienterprise business networks want all parties to connect using a single specification. We let partners connect according to their technical capability - we call it Integrate Once, Interoperate with Everyone.
Ensure Partner Success
TraceLink provides network management services to ensure every trading partner is successful.
Unlike other multienterprise business networks, we provide dedicated support to non-paying trade partners and give them a direct contact at TraceLink for help and guidance.
Our Network Success Team onboards partners into the network, establishes their unique ID, verifies certificates, vets users to ensure they belong to the trading partner, creates a B2B link setting their connection protocols, aligns on format and data requirements, and conducts end-to-end system testing.
Build Customized Solutions
Solution Builder is a core Opus capability that enables TraceLink, customers and solution partners to create custom solutions.
You can design and configure users experience and logic, workflows, data models, create and modify roles, and configure policies to determine user access to data and actions.
Harness The Collective Intelligence of the Network
Intelligence gathering across the app network is a core service on the TraceLink platform thanks to our distributed data mesh architecture.
Monolithic, centralized data lake architectures often have trouble scaling. Our data mesh architecture is distributed and powers analytics at scale within each application as well as across all applications in the network.
Data is gathered from across an integrated network of networks, providing intelligence never before possible.
Customers get signals of emerging disruptions, recalls, expiry, shift in demand and performance.
Leverage the Collective Intelligence of the Network
Network members - collectively - act more intelligently than any person, group or computer has ever done before.
