NOTE: Siebel EAI supports both batch and real-time integration. Because batch integration optimizes interactions for high throughput, it uses computing resources more efficiently. By contrast, real-time integration optimizes response time. Figure 6. Peer-to-Peer Integration

Overview of Siebel EAI About Siebel EAI Integration Strategies Overview: Siebel Enterprise Application Integration Version 8.1 27 Application Connection with an Integration Server Integration can be achieved by connecting an application through an integration server that provides an information bus or a hub and spoke architecture to tie disparate applications together. The benefit of using an integration server is that it reduces the number of physical connections. Figure 7 illustrates how each application connects only one time, through an adapter, to the integration server. The integration server also provides a reliable integration infrastructure that is successfully implemented in a large and critical deployment. A Siebel application can integrate with an integration server by using an adapter provided by a partner, such as IBM, TIBCO, or WebMethods. For information about supported integration servers, see Siebel System Requirements and Supported Platforms . Other Integration Strategies Some of the other integration strategies that can be used include: Multiple Application Process Integration . A successful business requires business processes that span multiple applications. For example, a quote to cash business process spans credit check, inventory management, billing, shipping, and other application services. Siebel EAI facilitates multiple application business processes. Master Data Partitioning. Master data refers to the set of data that is required by a community of applications. Master data is partitioned between applications. Although each piece of data is owned by one application, the community imposes rules for the creation and update of master data. Data Sharing. Siebel EAI allows Siebel Business Applications to access external data in real time without having to maintain a local, duplicate copy. This is a common requirement in the financial services industry, where the file for customer information typically resides on a mainframe. Figure 7. Integration Server

Overview: Siebel Enterprise Application Integration Version 8.1 Overview of Siebel EAI About Siebel EAI Integration Strategies 28 Presentation Layer Integration. Siebel EAI supports client integration in a Web client environment. Client integration includes integrating applications at the user interface level, either by juxtaposing the screens within a portal and coordinating the content, or by screen scraping the content of one screen into the content of another screen. Data Mapping and Transformation. Data that is shared between applications might not be structured or encoded in the same way. To facilitate integration of data structures that are not identical, Siebel EAI specifies mapping and transformation rules, including filtering and structural changes.

    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.
