Integration using SOA

To thrive and stay efficient and competitive, a company must be able to quickly respond to any changes, both internal and external. From this point of view, IT infrastructure is critical. The main requirements for IT infrastructure are flexibility and responsiveness. IT infrastructure is becoming more complex, which leads to increased costs, as well as resource and time consumption in relation to the integration of each new system. In addition, new business requirements emerge regularly.

Infrastructure flexibility can be achieved through the establishment of enterprise IT environments on the basis of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), in which business services are the main structural and functional elements. SOA is based on the single Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), which supports reliable interaction of systems in accordance with flexibly configurable routing rules and the necessary transformations with data enrichment. The Service Bus provides a cost-effective way to centrally configure, deploy, and manage a large-scale enterprise's systems.

From the SOA perspective, integration of business tasks is a process applied to IT applications in the form of business services.

Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) allows you to:

· increase responsiveness to changing business requirements

increase the flexibility of information systems and provide the necessary level of integration between them (both systems based on industry standards and proprietary ones)

reduce application development costs

improve the integration of the company's IT architecture and business processes

create sophisticated applications based on a set of integrated services

create controlled, transparent, and flexible business processes on the basis of sophisticated applications

The combination of BPM and SOA provides companies with next generation tools for rapid development of composite business applications. Such an approach allows you to ensure the most efficient use of all existing resources, as well as to quickly connect new ones.

Business benefits:

Full compliance of IT infrastructure with the strategic and tactical goals of the company

Reduced integration costs due to reusable services

New opportunities for integration with third parties and trading partners

Rapid adaptation to changing external conditions

Rapid satisfaction of user requirements
