1C:Enterprise is an open system. It allows integration with almost any third-party software and hardware and equipment based on acknowledged open data transmission standards and protocols.
1C:Enterprise tools help exchange files of various formats, allow access to all system objects from third-party applications, support various exchange protocols and standards for interacting with other subsystems (XML, JSON, etc.), and enable Internet and email.
In applications, 1C:Enterprise supports creating web and HTTP services and using third-party web and HTTP services. Also, the system allows third-party systems to access 1C apps' data over the OData protocol.
1C:Enterprise solutions can be integrated with various equipment—including shop and storage gear (data terminals, card readers, etc.). Integration with commonly used shop and industrial equipment is available out of the box in most standard solutions.
Distributed infobases help quickly create locally distributed systems in 1C:Enterprise.
The universal data exchange mechanism allows establishing the interaction with various data systems—including those beyond 1C.
Data exchange functionality embedded in the 1C:Enterprise technological platform allows you to create geographically distributed information systems, which can be based on 1C:Enterprise infobases or can include third-party information systems. For example, the headquarters, branch offices, and warehouses can all use a single infobase or, alternatively, a 1C:Enterprise infobase can be integrated with an existing MySQL database.
The web services support allows you to create web services within 1C:Enterprise configurations. It also allows for interaction between 1C:Enterprise configurations and web services published by third-party vendors.
1C:Enterprise supports integration with applied systems based on XML documents, which are currently the most common data presentation tool.
External sources allow you to use data from external databases in applied solutions. This includes databases that are not based on 1C:Enterprise.
DBF integration tools are intended for manipulating DBF databases directly from 1C:Enterprise script. Virtually all data manipulation types are possible.
The main purpose of external connections is to provide fast and reliable software access to 1C:Enterprise data from external applications.
The main purpose of the 1C:Enterprise automation server is to manage the 1C:Enterprise system from third-party applications and perform actions that are identical to interactive actions.
Access to file system operations allows you to interact with other information systems through shared directories.
The external component support is intended for integration tasks that require close interaction between the 1C:Enterprise system and third-party software.
The ActiveDocument technology allows you to edit documents using external editors instead of built-in 1C:Enterprise tools.
Text files are the simplest method for exchanging data, which can be used for a variety of tasks. The main advantages are accessibility and convenient data presentation in text format.
Data exchange based on text documents can be one of the least resource-consuming methods of interaction with third-party information systems. In addition to the standard text editing tools (reading, writing, adding, inserting lines, and retrieving lines), developers have the option to generate text documents dynamically based on previously created templates.
The web extension is a standalone software product that provides access to 1C:Enterprise data from websites and web applications. It allows you to create web applications that use 1C:Enterprise infobases.
XDTO support is intended mostly for describing parameter types and return values of web services. This feature can also be used for exchanging data between 1C:Enterprise configurations and other information systems.
Additionally to the automated REST interface of the application, the platform allows creating native HTTP services in the application.
For the purposes of managing ZIP archives, the system has a set of 1C:Enterprise language objects.
The 1C:Enterprise language contains a set of low-level tools for managing binary data.
The platform can automatically generate a REST interface for the entire applied solution. Once an applied solution is published to a web server, third-party systems can access it through the REST interface using HTTP requests. The automatically generated REST interface, which is universal and cross-platform, is the primary tool for integration with third-party systems.
