David S. Linthicum is an internationally known distributed-computing and application integration expert who speaks at popular technical conferences throughout the United States.
He has almost twenty years of experience in the integration-technology industry, most recently as CTO of Mercator Software, Inc. He has consulted for hundreds of major corporations engaged in systems analysis, design, and development, with a concentration in complex distributed systems. This is David's third book on application integration. Enterprise Application Integration.
It encompasses technologies that enable business processes and data to speak to one another across applications, integrating many individual systems into a seamless whole. You will find an overview of EAI goals and approaches, a review of the technologies that support it, and a roadmap to implementing an EAI solution.
You will also find an in-depth explanation of the four major types of EAI: data-level, application interface-level, method-level, and user interface-level. Applying Technology. Chaos Today Order Tomorrow. Evolution of Stovepipes.

Enterprise Application Integration
Defining EAI As corporate dependence on technology has grown more complex and far reaching, the need for a method of integrating disparate applications into a unified set of business processes has emerged as a priority. After creating islands of automation through generations of technology, users and business managers are demanding that seamless bridges be built to join them. In effect, they are demanding that ways be found to bind these applications into a single, unified enterprise application. The development of Enterprise Application Integration EAI , which allows many of the stovepipe applications that exist today to share both processes and data, allows us to finally answer this demand. Interest in EAI is driven by a number of important factors. With the pressures of a competitive business environment moving IT management to shorter application life cycles, financial prudence demands that IT managers learn to use existing databases and application services rather than recreate the same business processes and data repositories over and over see Figure 1.
B2B Application Integration
In B2B Application Integration , noted enterprise application integration expert David Linthicum presents a timely, sophisticated introduction to middleware: the glue that holds today's rapidly changing e-Business IT infrastructures together. This book covers all aspects of e-Business integration, from concepts to technology, helping any IT professional understand how to leverage middleware to achieve business goals. Using real-world case studies and examples, he shows how to define an e-Business technical strategy that aligns with the objectives of the business; how to architect superior integrated B2B systems and infrastructure; and how to make the most of today's best tactical tools and techniques. For all IT managers, application integrators, and system architects concerned with delivering B2B systems that integrate diverse applications, both within the enterprise and beyond its borders. These emerging electronic business-to-business B2B relationships require a new type of integration technology that is dependent on intelligent, flexible middleware layers that glue disparate applications, databases, and processes together. B2B Application Integration is a comprehensive guide to the concepts, techniques, and technologies that enable application integration, the technical foundation of e-Business.
