What is Enterprise Application Integration?
The pace of contemporary business motivates a number of companies to implement ever more innovative IT services so as to meet the growing demands of clients and shareholders.
Most such services require integration with existing IT environment systems in order to utilize their full potential.
Simultaneously, what can be observed is a paradigm shift from “perfection” to “agility”, i.e. the possibility to quickly adapt to changes in the economic, technological, cultural and legal environment. However, bad integration of IT systems may stand in the way of such agility and significantly reduce the “time-to-market” capabilities for new applications.
It is thus essential to approach IT architecture so as to enable sharing services among domain systems of a company while simultaneously ensuring maximum agility of business and IT.
Appropriately applied EAI patterns, such as SOA or micro-service, help eradicate symptoms of poorly designed integration, i.e.:
- information silos
- point-to-point systems
- non-compliance with communication standards
A well-designed integration strategy is the key to simplifying an organization’s IT environment, reducing its maintenance costs and managing it efficiently.
It brings business and technology closer to each other.
It is also the necessary foundation for:
- business process automation (BPM) by orchestrating available services
- seamless integration of enterprise systems with mobile applications and cloud solutions
- building a flexible B2B channel for the purposes of maintaining relations with partners and data monetization
- enabling operating BI and making decisions in real time
- efficient migration from legacy systems and integration of IT environments within M&A framework
Implementing a strategic enterprise architecture poses a number of challenges:
- It requires in-depth knowledge of architectural patterns, reference models and communication standards.
- In most cases it requires making an about-face over the traditional way of thinking about system integration.
