Role of SOA, ESB, and BPM in Integration Projects
Today, in order to increase efficiency and be competitive, companies must quickly respond to any internal or external changes in business processes. The company’s IT infrastructure, plays a critical role in responding to such changes considering it is built based on a flexible and agile architecture.
The complexity of the IT infrastructure leads to increased costs, resources, and integration time.
The infrastructure flexibility and agility of an enterprise, can be achieved by building an IT environment based on Service Oriented Architecture – SOA.
Key Components of a SOA:
– Enterprise Service Bus (ESB)
– Business Process Execution Language (BPEL)
– Business Rules
– Complex Event Processing (CEP)
– SOA Governance
– B2B Integration
– Business Activity Monitoring (BAM)
– Unified Management & Monitoring
Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) – is a communication system between mutually interacting software applications in the service-oriented architecture (SOA). ESB provides a cost-effective way to centrally configure, deploy, and manage services across a large enterprise.
The SOA’s goal is to set up an IT infrastructure in which all the necessary IT resources of the company are provided in a flexible, efficient and fast way.
Accelerating Business through Business Process Management and SOA
BPM (Business Process Management) is a common attribute of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), and an instrument through which a company can apply SOA to high-value business challenges. Both SOA and BPM can be applied individually, but the two agreed approaches offer mutual benefits for business.
The combination of BPM and SOA provides companies with a new generation of tools for the rapid development of composite business applications. This allows to maximize the use of all available resources of the company, as well as quickly connect new ones.
