Integration of Independent Applications and EAI Systems using Service Oriented Enterprise Bus and Open System Application Development Standards

By Quist-Aphetsi Kester Koumadi Koudjo M Nii.Narku Quaynor

DOI:, Pub. Date: 1 Jun. 2013

Businesses today are dependent on custom enterprise software and web applications from independent software developers and software companies. This creates a lot of problems such as integration, interoperability, security, and system maintenance. Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) and Business-to-Business integration control several key technologies and swift advancement in technology to meet the increasing needs for integration in the enterprise which often results in a lot of challenges due to differences between one proprietary approach and another. This paper seeks to provide an approach of integrating independent applications and EAI systems by using Web services standards and open application development standards in dealing with the challenges faced in integrating applications. This will make it possible for organizations to add a new layer of abstraction that is open, standards-based, and easy to integrate with any new or existing system and also make easy for data discovery as well as building of new concepts from existing data. The combination of Service Oriented Architecture and Web services will be used to provide a rapid integration solution and also publishing services in a manner that new concepts can easily be built from existing services.
