Role of Systematic Reuse in Enterprise Integration

· Integration Zone

Build APIs from SQL and NoSQL data sources in seconds. Read the Creating REST APIs white paper, brought to you in partnership with CA Technologies.

Systematic reuse in the context of enterprise integration provides several benefits:

  • allows the team to evolve consistent set of data interfaces across integration efforts – if multiple systems need to integrate with yours, can you define a generic data model for your domain-specific concepts? This could be file layout(s), service interface schemas, or platform specific APIs
  • enables common interfaces for domain specific services and business processes
  • integration points often need cross-cutting concerns such as logging, transaction management, exception handling, etc. that can be reused
  • reusable utilities can help with support and testing tools – for instance,  reply failed messages, drain message queues/topics, generate high volume test data, etc.


Question is – are your teams taking advantage of integration points? or is each integration point implementing identical or similar functionality in an inconsistent fashion?
