Enterprise application integration (EAI)
Integrated Development ensures that business information is kept consistent
Enterprise application integration (EAI) is an integration framework composed of a collection of technologies and services which form a middleware or "middleware framework" to enable integration of systems and applications across an enterprise.
Integrated Development will devise the types of business software which is suitable for your company to conduct its business: such as supply chain management applications, ERP systems, CRM applications for managing customers, business intelligence applications, payroll and human resources systems, all typically cannot communicate with one another in order to share data or business rules. For this reason, such applications are sometimes referred to as islands of automation or information silos. This lack of communication leads to inefficiencies, wherein identical data are stored in multiple locations, or straightforward processes are unable to be automated
Integrated Development role is to carry out the process of Enterprise application integration which is the process of linking such applications within a single organization together in order to simplify and automate business processes to the greatest extent possible, while at the same time avoiding having to make sweeping changes to the existing applications or data structure
