IntraLinks, an information exchange solutions provider, released complementary integration technologies that enable organizations to more easily and securely extend the reach of their enterprise applications outside of their firewall. These technologies -- IntraLinks APIs, the IntraLinks Integration Adapter, and IntraLinks Connectors -- will increase corporate efficiency by allowing various systems to seamlessly share information and deliver new business processes faster while reducing the cost of application development.

IntraLinks API is a comprehensive development interface to the IntraLinks environment that allows for the management and control of content, users, sessions, and system administration. Developed on Representational State Transfer (REST) architecture, IntraLinks APIs are Web services ready and used extensively by IntraLinks development teams to create applications.

The IntraLinks Integration Adapter is a client-side .NET application that uses XML-based file messaging to enable communications between IntraLinks and client-based applications. These adapters will become a powerful component of an organization’s open and flexible technology infrastructure.

IntraLinks Connectors integrate IntraLinks with the APIs of other complementary systems including Microsoft SharePoint. This extends the use cases for those systems, enabling firms to maximize existing software investments. Packaged services include file transfer, permissioning users, reporting, and workflow.

“IntraLinks’ new integration capabilities allow our customers to securely communicate with other enterprise applications such as enterprise content management, collaboration, and CRM systems,” said Fahim Siddiqui, executive vice president of product development and operations for IntraLinks. “These integration solutions will enable businesses to extend the use cases for both the IntraLinks solutions and other existing enterprise solutions while reducing the effort and cost required to do so.”
