Enterprise Application Integration Fundamentals
Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) grew out of the incompatibility between the many different ERP applications prevalent during the 1990s and the many in-house applications that needed to use them. ERP applications like SAP, PeopleSoft, and JD Edwards, and customer relationship management systems (CRMs) like Clarify and Siebel quickly became enterprise data silos, and it became increasingly important to reuse the data and functionality in those systems. EAI is an architectural approach for integrating disparate services and data in software. EAI seeks to simplify and automate business processes without requiring comprehensive changes to the existing applications and data structures.
