Abstracts

In modern business operations, it has become imperative that processes, systems and sometimes organizations integrate. This is for various reasons such as maximizing profits, efficiency, expansion etc. Developing a robust integration plan, architecture and process mapping are key to any B2B integration. B2B integration can be defined as the integration of applications, programs, or systems extending the walls of an organisation and it include heterogeneous infrastructures, data, application software, and business processes integration between two or more businesses. The growth and change of systems and related technology is a very rapid arena, thus requiring almost every software system to have constant modification, integration and/or configuration, to provide enhanced integrated solutions to the changing world. Simply put it is developing an approach to expanded and extended collaboration, communication, resource sharing, optimization, profitability and efficiency within and between organisations. Integration is a general term for the tools and applications that are involved to enable different systems to interoperate and communicate with each other within or beyond a business enterprise, thus allowing complete integration of services and data sources among different applications. Current integration architectures are sufficient on the basis of service or product needs. But most B2B integrations do not sufficiently consider the involved processes, which contain most if not all stakeholders concerns and quality attributes. In this study, we take a look at the art of integration architecture and patterns, the impact on business processes, services and products as well as challenges hitherto.

Keywords :

Integrations; business to business; service oriented architecture; process; nodes; architecture.
