How to install Nodinite for a Proof of Concept (POC)

You get the short-hand information required to conduct a POC on this page.

You can sign up for our free e-learning package at nodinite.com/learn

What are you going to prove?

We think it is a good idea that you have a solid use case for the POC. We recommend that you run at least three different use-cases:

  1. A simple scenario, like a managed file transfer.
  2. A more complex scenario, usually a request-response with multiple systems, message formats and alike.
  3. 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.

The customer or a partner with access to the target environment must perform these steps before installing Nodinite
