While it is easy to criticize these enterprises, they have done the best they could, given the available technology. Understanding the Enterprise and Problem Domain Step 2: This was clear from the earliest days of EAI when most, if not all, integration efforts focused on bundling packaged applications among themselves as well as among the other applications in the enterprise.

The integration of applications to save precious development dollars creates a competitive edge for corporations who share application information either within the corporation or with trading partners.

Whether correctly or not, traditional IT leveraged the power of these newer, more open platforms. While acknowledging that smaller and more open systems can hold a very important place in the enterprise, this decision-making process lacked the perspective and foresight that might have minimized, or possibly avoided, many integration problems.

For example, if you want to expand your sales order entry system to allow unknown customers to link to your company Web site and purchase your linthicm, you would have to expose that information using techniques and technology created by EAI. Many enterprises that needed to integrate applications have implemented such integration architectures within their enterprises and continue to maintain them today.
