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.

* 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
