In today’s competitive and dynamic business environment, applications such as Supply Chain Management (SCM), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Business Intelligence and Integrated Collaboration environments have become imperative for organizations that need to maintain their competitive advantage.
Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) is the process of linking applications such as Supply Chain Management (SCM), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Business Intelligence in order to realize financial and operational competitive advantages. Overcoming information bottlenecks that require human intervention in the form of decision-making or data entry.
Domain Integrators address the problem of EAI by applying Service-oriented architecture (SOA) where existing or new functionality are grouped into atomic services. These services would communicate with each other, for example, passing data from one service to another or coordinating an activity between one or more services.
