Enterprise Application Integration - Where Is It Now (And What Is It Now)? Part 2: Where Is It Now?
Enterprise Application Integration has changed massively in the past two years. Where is the market, and what vendors are left in the game?

Enterprise Application Integration - the Latest Trend in Getting Value from Data


Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) is one of the hot-button issues in IT for the Year 2000. Information Week Research's survey of 300 technology managers showed nearly 75% of respondents said EAI is a planned project for their IT departments in the coming year. According to a survey conducted by Bank Boston, the market for EAI is expected to be $50 Billion USD by 2001. However, successful EAI requires a careful combination of a middleware framework, distributed object technologies, and custom consulting.

Look for packaged EAI applications to become more prevalent in the next two years (90% probability). Custom consulting, however, will still be required to wire the middleware together (100% probability.)

Architecture Evolution: From Web-based to Service-oriented Architecture


Traditional enterprise systems have proven difficult to change and extend. The inherent problem of old core code and business logic duplication is part of the reason traditional enterprise resource planning systems have not readily taken to e-commerce.

Gartner defines SOA as an application topology in which the business logic of the application is organized in modules (services) with clear identity, purpose, and programmatic-access interfaces. Services behave as black boxes : Their internal design is independent of the nature and purpose of the requestor. In SOA, data and business logic are encapsulated in modular business components Read More

Architecture-Centered Information Systems In The Manufacturing Domain - Part III - Steps in the Architecture Process


Architecture bridges the semantic gap between the requirements and software. Application software systems must be architected in order to deal with the current and future needs of the business organization. Managing software projects using architecture–centered methodologies must be an intentional step in the process of deploying information systems – not an accidental by–product of the software acquisition and integration process.

The CORBA Interface Definition Language (IDL), an ISO standard notation for ODP computational architectures, becomes a fundamental notation for software architects at these boundaries. It has no programming language and operating system dependencies, and can be translated to most popular programming languages for both CORBA and Microsoft technology bases (i.e., COM/DCOM). Engineering Viewpoint The engineering viewpoint defines the infrastructure requirements independent of Read More

Architecture Evolution: From Mainframes to Service-oriented Architecture


Product architecture is going to do much more than simply provide the technical functionality, the user interface, and the platform support. It is going to determine whether a product is going to be able to accommodate increasingly evolving user requirements.

Web services, however, can wrap around virtually any type of existing business functionality. Further, Web services tends to be simpler, partly b Read More

J.D. Edwards Saved By SCM, Narrowly, And Only For Now


On March 5, J.D. Edwards reported financial results for Q1 2001. Although the company posted a symbolic profit, the revenue decline begs the question why the company seems to be in a doldrums at the same time when its competitors seem to be upbeat.
