I hope the presentation will help others to explore affordable pay-per-transaction solutions and consequently to save money on IT infrastructure and get a better ROI on Salesforce licenses by using included features.

Welcome to this step-by-step guide on how to implement scalable, low-code and low-budget near real-time Salesforce integrations with third-party systems. In this post, I will describe how to reproduce the live demo I did during my first Dreamforce session .
The reason behind the presented architecture is that I didn’t have any on-premise infrastructure and I had a very limited IT budget so I couldn’t afford a complete ESB.
You will learn how to combine Salesforce Outbound Messages, AWS services, as well as Talend Open Studio for Data Integration.
I promise you it will be very cheap (totally free up to a few thousand records and few hundred thousand transactions), but it takes some time to configure especially if you’re not familiar with some of the tools involved, so please be patient.

Given the limited amount of IT budget and no on-premise servers to run my integration jobs, after some research, I found a reasonable solution which I summarize below.
