In a context where information systems are increasingly distributed and specialized, integration is the critical feature that keeps the global system efficient and effective.
The classic approach used to be vertical (with the visibility of the specific integration needs of each single project and the communication technique negotiated between project teams) and such approach generated a large number of application interfaces within the companies’ systems, the so called Spaghetti Architecture in slang, which meant increase of costs of setup/maintenance and compromising the flexibility and agility needed to shape the processes accordingly to business needs.
The spreading of Enterprise Application Integration platforms based on messaging technologies, on the contrary, is able to determine a structured approach to minimize the proliferation of point-to-point connections that slow down a complex system making it ungovernable.
Moreover, the establishment of SOA (Services Oriented Architecture) automatically set a standard that simplified the implementation and the management of services, by promoting their reuse in a heterogeneous context through an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB).
ESB supports all open standards to make virtualization services, orchestration, integration, mediation, cataloguing, security management and governance within a complex architecture.
However, the success of an EAI/ESB is not guaranteed only by the mere knowledge of the technology and the products employed for the implementation but a required feature is solid experience that leads to solving the real problems that are actually the crucial factors for winning in an integration process.
i-Seed can design, create and manage messaging and Enterprise Service Bus infrastructures with a team of skilled professionals with the right qualities and original approach.
