Applications are not always connected; often, they should be. Business processes often require functions from many different systems. Applications need to work together to provide enhanced experiences; many applications have redundant functions that need coordination. Manual design processes are required for intensive investigation and analysis.
Goals and Objectives
Provide standardized, efficient, scalable, and secure mechanism for application integration, minimizing operational inefficiency.
Traditional technologies including EAI, microservices and API, ETL, enterprise service bus; cognitive intelligence technologies for data orchestration
Use Case Summary
Connected applications, preferably through standardized APIs, can be combined to provide greater value to business and customers to improve operational efficiency, higher productivity, and faster turnaround times.
