flowground – the integration-solution of Deutsche Telekom for API-based data integration
NOTE: The operation of the flowground platform will be discontinued on October 31st, 2020. Therefore we can no longer offer you the service.
As a partner for the digitalisation of your company we will continue to support you on your way into the digital future. Here you can find our offers for business customers.
Digitization of business processes presents companies with ever greater challenges
The integration of data from innumerable sources into an increasingly heterogeneous application landscape is difficult and time-consuming to accomplish – especially for medium-sized companies. Existing integration solutions on the market are primarily focused on the US market and, in terms of the concrete requirements of small and medium-sized companies, usually too complex and inflexible.
Close your digital gap – efficient digitization of business processes
Smooth and secure integration of cloud services into existing infrastructure: Connect API-based cloud applications (SaaS) with each other or with existing on-premises/legacy IT systems to optimise business processes in your company. The flowground integration platform supports on-premise, single and multicloud solutions.
Reliable integration with ready-to-use connectors
Connectors use existing interfaces (APIs) to connect your applications to flowground. The platform gives you free access to quality-assured connectors for leading software solutions. You can connect these to integrated workflows in your own project rooms. Once created, workflows can be adapted, expanded and replicated at any time. And if you're missing a connector to a particular solution, just add it yourself.
Up to 5x faster integration
About 80% time saving* compared with a conventional point-to-point project. Your programming effort is reduced, while your project runtime is shortened.

Up to 10x more efficient
flowground offers you a scalable runtime environment to support several projects simultaneously. Once created, workflows can be adapted, extended and replicated at any time. And if you lack a connector to a specific solution, you can add it yourself.
Open and neutral
Benefit from the open source concept, an integration platform without vendor login and thereby take advantage of the global offering of SaaS solutions.
Security “Made in Germany”
Benefit from high security standards of Deutsche Telekom.
The platform is hosted in secure Telekom data centres in Germany in compliance with EU GDPR.

Value creation in flow:
The flowground principle
flowground is an integration platform from the Telekom Cloud. It allows you to securely and efficiently integrate applications and data from various sources: on-premise applications as well as cloud software (SaaS).
With flowground, Deutsche Telekom offers a lean solution tailored to the needs of medium-sized companies – powerful and secure, yet open and neutral.
Ready-to-use API connectors are available on the flowground platform. These can be used to connect software applications in the project room to flows. All flows run on a secure, high-performance and scalable platform.
What is the project room?
flowground offers you an individual project room for your integration projects, with unlimited number of workspaces in which you can create and run integration flows.
- Connecting software solutions and making them available as complete flow
- Importing connectors from private or public repositories (git)
- Efficient collaboration in teams via project rooms and workspaces
What are connectors?
Connectors are the interface to software components. Developers can deploy ready-to-use connectors, build new connectors or extend existing ones.
- Connectors are software components developed with node.js or Java
- They trigger bidirectional API-based data exchange between the software applications that they connect
- flowground offers access to more than 1,500 connectors for leading business applications and services
What are flows?
In the Flow Creator you create integration flows: Connect data sources from several applications via connectors to "flows". This allows you to run business processes automatically.
- Connect two or more connectors individually
- Alternative: use existing flows
- Operate flows on a secure, high-performance and scalable platform
