The way “system integration” started was re-entering data between systems. That’s how data was shared. The sneaker net method. Along came EDI, which has been used for 25+ years. Less than 10 years ago, EAI, which integrated applications internally. Less than 5 years ago, B2B products started to be used. Even more recently, process automation software has become more common. The future is what we call “orchestration,” which includes the best of EAI for internal integration, B2B for external, and process automation to bring it all together, and allow people to focus on the real challenge: integrating business processes within and between orgs, not connecting systems.
