Business critical systems—off-the-shelf systems, custom-built applications, or software-as-a-service—consist of many logical end points. However, they are all common in exposing a set of inputs and a set of outputs. They also produce and consume data of different forms, custom binary or a standard format like XML, EDI, JSON, and so on. This data needs to follow a particular protocol—TCP/IP, HTTP, or FTP—in order to ensure seamless communication between different end points.
Integration is a buzzword we hear all the time, but what does it really mean? Essentially, integration is the act of allowing these different end points to work together in meaningful ways to accomplish business value. IBM IIB version 10 provides a significant leap forward from version 9 and provides key enhancements in terms of experience as well as capabilities.
