for Enterprise e-Business Integration

by Mike Ferguson, Colin White, Clive Finkelstein, John Kneiling, Chris Loosley


The Internet has become a key marketing, sales, and support channel for the modern enterprise, and e-Business initiatives dominate new IT development projects.
These projects, however, are not always successful, and e-business applications are often poorly integrated with existing enterprise IT systems.
To maximize business benefits and ROI, e-business applications need to be carefully planned, and fully integrated into core business systems.
It is also important that corporate e-business applications interoperate efficiently with those of trading partners and key clients.
