While the claims of no-code, service-based solutions like Redox can be tempting, it's crucial to consider the drawbacks that may come with a purely "hands-off" approach — escalating costs, diminished control, and limited adaptability.
At iNTERFACEWARE, we recognize the critical decision-making involved in selecting the right integration engine for long-term success.
Uncover why Iguana stands as the optimal solution over Redox for your healthcare integration needs.
Iguana is a leading integration engine trusted by healthcare organizations worldwide. With its robust transformation engine, extensive connectivity options, and focus on data quality control, Iguana empowers organizations to seamlessly integrate disparate systems and improve patient care.
In the complex realm of integration engines, partnering with a company you can trust is key to long term success:
Iguana: Quick and easy interface development with code autocompletion and live annotations.
Reusable modules speed up the process, especially when scaling up with new interfaces.
Future proof your integration, knowing that Iguana can be customized to handle any unique requirements.
"Iguana is a very easy product to use..."
"...a pleasure to work with, and its user-friendliness and capabilities really set it apart..."
"What I like most is the flexibility for creating and updating custom interface channels."
Redox: While interfaces are constructed on your behalf, it's essential to acknowledge that internal development is still required to initiate the connections to Redox’s endpoints.
On the surface they may seem to offer convenience, but users ultimately surrender direct control over interface customization. Consider also deployment timelines—will it align with your schedule or be dictated by Redox?
Opt for an integration engine that puts you in full control, and empowers you with the tools and flexibility to build interfaces to your standards.
Iguana: Iguana's robust logging system makes troubleshooting easy.
Search message logs with text queries or regular expressions to extract the insight you need.
Built-in Git version control makes it easy to compare versions and reverse changes as needed.
Iguana's comprehensive documentation and exceptionally responsive support team ensure you are never without guidance.
"Iguana is easy to use and has great tools for analysis, evaluation, troubleshooting, etc."
"There is nothing to dislike. Great support, very reliable, easy to troubleshoot issues."
Redox: While Redox offers a managed solution, it's crucial to weigh the reliance on a third party for ongoing maintenance.
Consider the potential need for support hours, and the impact caused by the inability to make necessary updates on your own. With potentially limited or costly support hours, addressing concerns about timely assistance and the potential for vendor lock-in becomes paramount.
Consider choosing an integration engine that makes it easier for you to monitor and update your own interfaces, with full direct control.
Iguana: With clear and simple pricing based on the number of interfaces, Iguana brings no surprises when it comes to cost.
The value extends well beyond the product itself – iNTERFACEWARE is a partner you can rely on for the long run.
"Iguana has been rock solid from the day we installed it, 13 years ago. It is so stable we have not needed to upgrade!"
"The business model is built on service!… We are not a number – Your team is viewed as an extension of our local resources.”
Redox: As with any engine, it is important to thoroughly understand the pricing structure with Redox and inquire about potential initial, recurring, or transaction-based fees tied to usage.
Assess the overall value proposition and contemplate how additional support or custom development might impact costs. Remember to evaluate these considerations in relation to Redox's 'integration as a service,' taking into account your project scope and future expansion plans.
Whether you're evaluating options or looking to switch from Redox, discover how Iguana revolutionizes healthcare connectivity.
