Enterprise Integration

EAL’s enterprise integration service assists our clients to develop enterprise integration architectures, service-oriented architectures, and integrated service designs that provide the basis for:

  • the secure and efficient integration of business systems;
  • the secure and efficient integration of business processes;
  • the secure exposure and control of internal and external facing services; and
  • the consumption of external services provided by processing partners.

EAL has implemented enterprise integration architectures using all major vendor platforms and can assist our clients in choosing the integration platform most suited to their budget and their needs.

EAL’s enterprise integration service can also provide component architectures that enable businesses to be more flexible in their adoption and use of packaged services (e.g. SaaS).

Why Would You Need This Service?

Within the modern technology world integration is a fundamental theme. Rich interactions across the internet demand integrated services presented to customers, suppliers, partners and internally within the organisation. All of this requires a robust enterprise integration capability and a flexible and secure integration architecture.

Increased integration enables more efficient business processes and the possibility of monetising data and services in a way previously not possible; however, it also poses a significant security threat as the inner functions of a business are exposed to the world. A properly designed integration capability can transform a business, a poorly designed one can be an existential threat.

How We Deliver This Service

EAL will review and assess the project requirements to determine the appropriate enterprise integration architecture styles and patterns such as:

  • Developing an enterprise integration strategy;
  • Developing an integration component architecture;
  • Implementing a service-oriented architecture (SOA);
  • Developing integration requirements;
  • Developing an integration roadmap;
  • Evaluating integration platform options and recommending a suitable platform considering the integration requirements;
  • Implementing an enterprise integration platform;
  • Transformation from legacy integrated systems to a streamlined single common solution that integrates the business processes, data and systems
  • Capturing and documenting existing interfaces into an interfaces catalog;
  • Documenting interface specifications;
  • Recommending integration architecture and design patterns;
  • Developing the “As Is” integration architecture and the “To Be” integration architecture;
  • Capturing the integration design in an architecture tool.

Deliverables

  • Enterprise integration strategy;
  • Service oriented architecture (including micro-services);

Typical Outcomes

Most commonly EAL sees clients undertaking Enterprise Integration initiatives in conjunction with other business or IT transformation activities. In these scenarios Enterprise Integration is a foundational element without which the transformation cannot succeed. Only once the Enterprise Integration architecture is in place, can transformation can be successfully achieved.
