6 EAI Defined

7 What is Application Integration Yankee Group; …the continuous process of improving the enterprises’ entire information technology base-applications, information, communications, and infrastructure to support the business. Yankee Group; …the continuous process of improving the enterprises’ entire information technology base-applications, information, communications, and infrastructure to support the business. Gartner Group says; “Application integration is defined as making independently designed application systems work together.” Mercator; …EAI is the process of integrating different applications to enable an enterprise to communicate with a single voice.

8 The Integration Problem “Imagine if you didn’t have common electric outlets and plugs in your house, and every time you bought a new appliance, you had to wire up the appliance to the wires in your wall. And everybody’s wires in everybody’s walls were different. And everybody’s appliance wiring was different. That’s really the way it works today with trying to integrate business software applications.” - Paul Margolis, past chairman of the OAG, Inc.

9 The Integration Problem Multiple, disparate applications Multiple platforms Multiple databases Multiple transaction processors Multiple data entry points Multiple versions of the same data Incompatible business data Multiple, disparate applications Multiple platforms Multiple databases Multiple transaction processors Multiple data entry points Multiple versions of the same data Incompatible business data

10 Factors Contributing to the Problem Application systems are built at different times by different groups operating independently of each other Organizations are stuck w/ incompatible architectures and hard-to-maintain, but harder-to- eliminate legacy applications Organizations are embracing a buy before build strategy that favours purchased application packages over internal development Application systems are built at different times by different groups operating independently of each other Organizations are stuck w/ incompatible architectures and hard-to-maintain, but harder-to- eliminate legacy applications Organizations are embracing a buy before build strategy that favours purchased application packages over internal development

12 – Need a systematic approach to the problem – No E.F. Codd of Integration No mathematical basis No mathematical basis No relevant academic leadership No relevant academic leadership – Multiple Vendor Specific Frameworks unlike DBMS marketplace where DB implementations are similar unlike DBMS marketplace where DB implementations are similar Integration Software vendors have widely different implementation frameworks Integration Software vendors have widely different implementation frameworks – Need a systematic approach to the problem – No E.F.

23 Hub and Spoke Pattern Point to Point Hub & Spoke Hub and spoke organizing principles 1. Don’t connect anything directly to anything 2. Applications are autonomous and share no databases directly 3. Knowledge of interconnections removed from source and targets and moved to the hub Benefits 1. Operational simplification 2. Adaptation to change 3. Reuse leverage

24 – 2 Brokers are in place: Homegrown Broker supports near-time integration patterns Homegrown Broker supports near-time integration patterns Broker is MVS based using MQSeries to connect to applications on: Broker is MVS based using MQSeries to connect to applications on: – AS/400, NT, DEC/ALPHA, AIX, MVS Mercator supports batch integration patterns Mercator supports batch integration patterns – Mercator is used for most of the transformations – Bulk data movement is done using homegrown File Transfer/MQSeries – 2 Brokers are in place: Homegrown Broker supports near-time integration patterns Homegrown Broker supports near-time integration patterns Broker is MVS based using MQSeries to connect to applications on: Broker is MVS based using MQSeries to connect to applications on: – AS/400, NT, DEC/ALPHA, AIX, MVS Mercator supports batch integration patterns Mercator supports batch integration patterns – Mercator is used for most of the transformations – Bulk data movement is done using homegrown File Transfer/MQSeries CTC Integration Infrastructure
