Building integrations to CRM applications? Find out eight things that each product manager and technical executive should know in The CRM Integration Guide: 8 Things Experts Are Considering in Their API Strategy.

I had a brand new talk at OBJEKTspektrum Information Days 2013 in Frankfurt and Munich this week: Enterprise Integration Patterns Revisited. I wanna share my slides with you.


Applications have to be integrated – no matter which programming languages, databases or infrastructures are used. However, the realization of integration scenarios is a complex and time-consuming task. Over 10 years ago, Enteprise Integration Patterns (EIP) became the world wide defacto standard for splitting huge, complex integration scenarios into smaller recurring problems. These patterns appear in almost every integration project.

This session revisits EIPs and gives shows status quo. After giving a short introduction with several examples, the audience will learn which EIPs still have a „right to exist“, and which new EIPs emerged in the meantime. The end of the session shows different frameworks and tools which already implement EIPs and therefore help the architect to reduce efforts a lot.


Your API is not enough. Learn why (and how) leading SaaS providers are turning their products into platforms with API integration in the ebook, Build Platforms, Not Products from Cloud Elements.
