System integration projects often derive from mergers and acquisitions that result in redundant processes, systems and functions.
One of the ways to make your business more efficient is to integrate all your assets into a central hub. The hub handles the management of failover and recovery, data transformation, and enables reuse of business logic. An integrated system infrastructure will allow you to add new applications, to easily grow and transform data as required. By centralizing common services you are able to reduce operational costs and make overall processes more efficient.
Integration initiatives are also about leveraging your assets in more powerful ways by enabling real-time access to internal systems, extending applications to the Web and mobile devices, and exposing portions of the data and applications to partners.
A well designed integration hub positions your company for future growth. When new applications are brought into the enterprise, the hub can be easily extended to support the new system without implementing direct connections from each application.
