| Enterprises large and small have elaborate processes to smooth our ability to weld activities in multiple units into one corporate process. Regardless of where you work or the tools you use, you have to balance the books, keep customers happy, and satisfy auditors. Integration is much more difficult for larger organizations with many human and machine connection points.
Companies are struggling to link all their disparate processes to regain control over the books, manage order fulfillment, leverage purchasing, and improve effectiveness and productivity. This is all within a world of rapid change among customers and in markets, legislation, technology, business processes, and teams. Mergers, acquisitions, and market consolidation further complicate the problem. So, it's no surprise that, for the past two decades, B2B integration methods have become increasingly important for companies seeking greater effectiveness and efficiency.
The only way forward is to integrate with whatever your customers and partners use. You must link your front-ends to your back-end processes. And process integration requires application integration. For the past five years, the level of activity and expenditure in sophisticated integration has mushroomed. Analysts frequently state that approximately 40 percent of all computing costs are for integration-related activity. Using EAI, the industry has sought to reduce that cost and the associated time.
Integration makes the world go around. Without it, we have no culture, no teams, no birth rate, no chance of making world trade grow, and internal agony as we strive for corporate growth. Integration and EAI are vital to B2B - no one should believe otherwise.
