Overview

Businesses are being challenged to exploit new technologies while reducing costs, improving quality, and responding faster to opportunities. Electronic commerce, global markets, and Internet-speed business transactions demand fundamental changes. Business-to-business communications, enterprise portals, and application components are only some of the capabilities businesses must develop in order to compete. Fred Cummins provides guidelines for implementing an enterprise integration architecture that will enable you to capitalize on current and future technologies.

This comprehensive book begins by assessing the technology landscape, defining enterprise integration objectives, and providing a general enterprise integration architecture.

The author then dives into the keytechnologies for implementing this architecture, including:
* Messaging for EAI and communication between major business systems
* Component-based applications based on EJB and CORBA for rapid development and flexibility
* Using Extensible Markup Language (XML) for document exchange and electronic signatures
* Managing workflow for process automation and streamlining
* Web access and Web services for electronic commerce and supply-chain integration
* Security and public key infrastructure (PKI) to support single sign-on, encryption, and protection from hackers
