EAI support tools

EAI Tools requirements

Application integration means connecting disparate systems together by providing a way for them to communicate with each other using standards such as XML, J2EE, and JMS. In order to integrate applications across enterprises or business networks and support the performance, scalability, and flexibility required, an integration platform must have a distributed architecture. It must also allow the addition, replacement or deletion of applications, non-intrusively, without requiring any changes to be made to existing IT systems.

EAI Components

  • The basic components in EAI packages are:
  • Library of standard adaptors and connectors for connecting with various systems, applications and databases
  • XML mapping tools and other tools for building customised connectors and adaptors
  • Web services management tools

Vendors and products

Application Integration technologies come under a variety of names such as EAI, Enterprise Information portals, middleware, Application Servers, B2B etc. Over 80 main vendors are active in this market a figure that includes most of the major software companies such as IBM, Oracle,  Sun and Microsoft. Well known integration tools/platforms include: MS-Biztalk, Oracle 9iAS, IBM WebSphere/MQ Series,ActiveWorks , TIBCO, iWay, ItemField, Librados, Mercator,  webMethods, BEA- eLink, Vitria-Businessware, Software AG, Geneva Business Process Automator, Integration Brokers, iWave Integrator, M-Business Services, etc.

A critical view of EAI

EAI is designed primarily for large enterprises with thousands of different sources of data. For such organisations, the business return of integrating all their applications with expensive EAI solutions may be justified. That justification may dissolve, however, when the enterprise compares the huge cost of EAI with alternative solutions aimed primarily at enterprise unification rather than application integration.
