Get system integration &
service oriented architecture
System Integration involves joining component subsystems together by “gluing” their interfaces.
In today’s competitive and dynamic business environment, applications such as Supply Chain Management, Customer Relationship Management, and Business Intelligence have become imperative for organizations to maintain their competitive advantage.
Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) is the process of linking these applications and others to realize financial and operational competitive advantages.
One of the challenges modern organizations face is giving all their workers complete, transparent and real-time access to information.
Many of the legacy applications still in use today were developed using arcane and proprietary technologies, thus creating information silos across departmental lines.
These systems did not enable seamless movement of information from one application to the other. EAI, as a discipline, aims to alleviate many of these problems, as well as create new paradigms for lean proactive organizations.
EAI intends to:
Transcend the simple goal of linking applications
Enable new and innovative ways of leveraging organizational knowledge
When different systems can’t share their data effectively, they create information bottlenecks that require human intervention in the form of decision making or data entry.
With a properly deployed EAI architecture, organizations are able to focus most of their efforts on their value-creating core competencies instead of focusing on workflow management.
