ENTERPRISE APPLICATION INTEGRATION (EAI)
EAI (enterprise application integration) refers to the plans, methods, and tools designed to modernize, consolidate, and coordinate the various computer applications in an enterprise.
Most enterprises with existing legacy applications and databases continue to use them while adding or migrating to a new set of applications that can leverage the Internet, e-commerce and other budding technologies. This means a staggering amount of valuable information lies in the enterprise’s disparate and disconnected platforms. In today’s fast-moving digital economy, the ability to make agile, intelligent decisions requires unfettered access to that information and its context, no matter where it lies amongst those disparate and disconnected platforms which make up the enterprise’s IT infrastructure.
Our approach to EA enables one to access information regardless of where it lies, or what platform or applications it resides in. In addition, our approach to EA helps IT managers to isolate redundancies and pinpoint gaps in the IT infrastructure. When coupled with performance metrics, the enterprise architecture becomes a tool through which business and IT leaders can make the organization more efficient and responsive.
