Let’s start with an overview of a few important concepts.
Thru is a cloud based Managed File Transfer as a Service (MFTaaS) platform that enables enterprises and their partners to share files based on a postal service model.
Both Enterprise and Partner organizations simply “Pickup” and or “Dropoff” files in Thru via a self-managed file exchange portal.
Internal teams, business units or systems can also use flows to interact with one another’s end points with the ability to subscribe to file exchange “Transports”.
This powerful combination of industry leading file exchange and integration platform solutions, enables enterprises to build complex file exchange processes into an enterprise business ecosystem with ease.
Thru is built on 3 primary components:
• Organizations – File exchange process participants
• End points – File exchange source and target locations
• Transports – File exchange work flow process
Once granted access by the Enterprise, Organizations self-manage their users and reusable End points.
End points are used to subscribe to the Transports (file exchange processes) that the Enterprise has exposed to the Organization.
The following sections are organized to provide a detailed understanding of these important components.
