  • Web Service will talk to SmartGT system SQL Server using DB Adapter.
  • Web Service (SOAP or REST) can be consumed by any application or system.
  • Need to identify capability of External System(eg. Oracle ERP/SAP or any application) to interact with Secured Web Service. API used by those systems to consume Web Service which would interact with SmartGT System.
