Siebel Enterprise Integration Manager (EIM) provides a solution for a high volume batch integration. For more information, see “About the Enterprise Integration Manager” on page 43 . Design for an Application Integration Project The questions you must answer as part of the planning phase for an application integration project include: How is the data that is used in my organization shared? Which access mechanism makes the most sense for my situation? Which preexisting connector best applies to my situation? It is important to identify your requirements before you design the integration. Categories on which your design choice can be based include: Data Transformation. Data transformation between two systems is an important part of an integration project. You might be required to implement this data transformation by using the data transformation functions that are provided by Siebel. If your organization is already standardized on a data transformation tool, then you might choose to model the integration flow so that it uses this tool for data transformation. Data Sharing. If you must view data from an external source within your Siebel application, and if you do not need to replicate the data, then you can use a specific set of objects and tools that are designed specifically for this purpose. For example, you might need to view credit card transaction details from within a Siebel application while the credit card transaction details are stored on a mainframe system. Real-Time or Batch. You must consider whether you require real-time or batch mode integration. For example, you might need to publish to an external system a new opportunity that is created in a Siebel application as soon as the opportunity occurs. Or you might need to exchange information in batch mode when you must aggregate product catalog information from your suppliers.

Integration with Siebel EAI Overview of Integration with Siebel EAI Overview: Siebel Enterprise Application Integration Version 8.1 31 Siebel Business Interfaces After you design your integration requirements for each business process flow, you can apply the different components of Siebel EAI to implement a solution. Figure 8 illustrates the different types of applications with which Siebel Business Applications can integrate. Real-Time and Batch Mode Usage Models When considering your requirements, you must develop an understanding of how you intend to use the integration capabilities that are provided by Siebel EAI. You must determine how the integration behaves under specific circumstances. How are you planning to use this integration? This model is referred to as the usage model . Figure 8.

Batch mode uses a single mode, while real- time uses two modes, either tightly coupled or loosely coupled. To help you determine the appropriate usage model, answer the following questions: How do I plan to integrate Siebel applications with other applications?

    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.
