Reduced complexity with fewer interfaces
The number of interfaces is reduced drastically by the re-use of conversions and
intelligent routing. This also reduces the required time for creation,
administration and maintenance.
Separation of business logic and interface logic
The modelling of business logic is independent to the development of the
interfaces and mappings.
Flexibility, re-usability and the use of standards
Modular construction and standardised procedures allow agile actions.
EAI as the basis for web portals
Web portals and Web applications are easier to set up when an EAI infrastructure
already exists. These portals present various application possibilities in the
form of a unified web interface.
EAI as a starting point for B2B, SCM, CRM and e-commerce
Automated business to business communications, supply chain management, customer
relationship management and integrated process chains across company boundaries
present a unified access to many different data and functions.
EAI as a starting point for SOA, BPI and RTE
Modern IT strategies such as service-oriented architecture, business process
integration and real-time enterprise require EAI.
EAI for IT coupling after mergers
M&A (Mergers & Acquisitions) require the coupling of previously separate IT-
systems. EAI makes this possible as a gradual process during operations.
