The need for integration of diversified applications and systems, within the enterprise as well as beyond its boundaries, has been present for a very long time. The driving forces behind integration requirements have been information gathering, data exchange, data transformation, function exchange and intelligent routing across applications and business processes - within and beyond the enterprise.
The evolution of integration solutions has been particularly interesting. Starting with point to point and expensive (to implement, change, manage and scale) interfaces, and building them as the need be, integration solutions today are far more intelligent, less expensive, more flexible, easier to build, deploy and change and even to monitor and improve, thanks to the EAI (Enterprise Application Integration) / BPMS (Business Process Management Suite) integrated platform for application development, wherein BPM comes in to fill the gaps between systems, processes and people.
At the architectural level, BPM and EAI suites provide a strong foundation based on a Service Oriented Architecture - SOA, an architecture that aims at the identification, design, construction and implementation of reusable services that expose application functionality and data, that the organization may want to make available to other internal or external applications, customers, suppliers, partners, or other internal clients within the organization.
At iFactum, we provide world class application development and integration services thanks to our strong base in EAI/BPM methodologies and technologies that result in business solutions that integrate document management, portals, customer relationship management and enterprise resource planning systems to name a few.
