Enterprise Application Integration
Enterprise Application Integration refers to the plans, methods, and tools aimed at modernizing, consolidating, and coordinating the computer applications in an enterprise. Typically, an enterprise has existing legacy applications and databases and wants to continue to use them while adding or migrating to a new set of applications that exploit the Internet, e-commerce and other new technologies.
Enterprise Application Integration provides the following:
- Reduces systems/IT total cost of ownership
- Maximizes investments in existing systems
- Implements business change in underlying information technology systems
