Module 4: Enterprise integration architecture and strategies Preview This module introduces enterprise-wide integration strategies and explores success and failures in this technically complex and challenging area of information technology. You will review the successful strategies, which generated current best practices. The current integration standards are introduced in the context of process-driven and service-oriented architectures. This module provides an overview of how organizations use workflow and integration strategies to conduct inter-organizational transactions to support extended enterprises across the web. In addition, the virtual organization is introduced as a rather recent business model. You will learn about automated intelligent agents, their relationship to external integration as used in web services, and their potential impact on e-business in the next wave of automation. You will take a closer look at web services and how software components are finally being created to establish a solid foundation for enterprise integration. As large international organizations continue to expand and develop the use of information technology to gain competitive advantage, they also set new IT benchmarks in terms of increased functionality and lower costs for IT infrastructures. The advances made by these large organizations are now being positioned by the IT providers to address the needs of this very large market known as the small to medium enterprises (SME). You will explore the changes that IT providers are designing for the SME marketplace. Knowledge objectives z Describe the integration of an ES with the Internet, and contrast service-oriented architectures (SOA) with enterprise application integration (EAI). z Describe how service-oriented architectures and service-oriented processes work together to support business processes. z Explain how workflow is being used to support inter-organizational transactions. z Describe the potential changes that information technology may have on the small to medium enterprise (SME). z Explain the importance of business process reengineering (BPR) and how it has evolved over the last decade. z Describe the difference between an extended enterprise and a virtual organization.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
