Business description: Cast Iron is a groundbreaking company with a solution that simplifies and enables business integration. Our management team has decades of business integration experience with software vendors, hardware vendors and systems integrators. The Application Router dramatically reduces the cost and complexity for integration projects because the hardware, software and network interfaces have been carefully and completely integrated once – by our engineering team. Most integration projects involve simple business processes. First generation integration solutions were developed before the appearance of standards. As a result, they support many complex and uncommon systems and operational methodologies. This complexity does not add value for most projects.
