Unlocking business value and breaking down IT silos with EAI)
Just a few years ago, successive IT systems were frequently being implemented in an uncoordinated way. This practice led to the creation of IT silos, which have not shared the data critical to the functioning of the organization between themselves.
In response to that challenge, the Enterprise Application Integration has been created.
EAI allows the multiple applications (often made by various vendors) to communicate automatically with each other through an API in order to share the data. Thus, the company can utilize the information in a coherent manner and the changes of basic business data imputed by one application are accurately represented in other applications.
Integration of company’s data and applications is the key to improving the business processes. By sharing the vital data, simplifying the processes and maximizing the existing IT systems, the companies are able to increase the number of clients, range of activity and income.
