How to install Nodinite for a Proof of Concept (POC)
You get the short-hand information required to conduct a POC on this page.
We think it is a good idea that you have a solid use case for the POC. We recommend that you have at least run three different use-cases:
- A simple scenario, like a managed file transfer.
- A more complex scenario, usually a request-response with multiple systems, message formats and alike.
- A complex scenario, do include correlated events spanning some time, maybe with a split, multiple receivers in several systems. This use case should involve the business users in one way or another.
