Broadly speaking in the IT world, a Systems Integrator (“SI”) is someone who implements, plans, coordinates, schedules, tests, improves and, sometimes, maintains IT systems.
However, in terms of systems integration, the role of the integrator is restricted to enabling data integrations between the end client's different existing systems, defined in the scope of the project.
This can mean anything from simple internal point-to-point connections to very complex integrations, both internally and with third parties.
In this equation, the systems integrator designs, implements and tests the integration solution, as well as including ongoing management of the solutions, as well as liaising with third parties to enable connections with them.
Design, implement and integrate solutions
Systems integrators create, develop, synthesize and execute technological solutions adapted to the demands of an organization.
They are the ones who evaluate and authenticate the software with other information technology experts to ensure suitability before integrating it into the organization's primary system and network infrastructure.
In addition, those responsible for the area create work plans for team members and produce engineering plans, technical instructions, technical drawings and other documentation relevant to system integration.
Assist with customer support and solutions
Systems integration jobs are highly technical and need someone with hands-on experience working with clients.
They are responsible for evaluating and suggesting integration options based on customer needs and preferences.
You can expect frequent collaboration with the organization's management, administration and legal department (considering LGPD) to ensure that proposed solutions meet legal standards.
Documenting the process
A systems integrator curates documents and data related to integration principles.
In addition to producing documentation relating to installation, testing and administration of the system. It also provides the necessary documentation, highlighting the results of integration, performance and validation tests. This allows for better tracking and long-term delivery.
