Presentation: TweetPractical Enterprise Integration
Some of the most expensive development tasks in large IT projects involve systems integration. Frequently these run over budget due to apparently simple concerns such as adherence to agreed messaging standards, which hide a large degree of complexity that often isn't fully apparent until the system moves into production. While there is no single 'right' way to address these challenges, there are approaches that are proven to reduce development time and increase operational reliability.
This session will showcase tried and tested patterns which have successfully delivered numerous systems integration projects and continue to keep them running as standards and systems evolve. You'll see how ESBs and frameworks such as Mule, Camel, Integration Objects & Spring Integration provide a foundation that scales to processing hundreds of thousands of messages per second with minimal latency and reduces the pain of regular updates to message formats.
Whether you're handling 10s of messages per day or 10s of millions of messages per hour, processing per-message or per-batch, handling binary SS7 telecommunications messages, EDIFACT messages for a retail client, FIX / SWIFT financial services messages or more universal XML & CSV, this session will help you regain control over your enterprise integration.
