The Missing Link: Systems Integration in the Curriculum
This paper considers the need to include components of the body of knowledge required to do systems integration into the Information Systems curriculum. The fact that systems integration, often known as 'Enterprise Application Integration' (EAI), is often connected to the now common occurrence of bringing an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) package into an organization is addressed. Based on this fact, and the mandate to support legacy applications, the incorporation of various components into the Information Systems curriculum is advocated. Various system integration components which might be included in such a curriculum are identified and described.
Keywords: systems integration, enterprise application integration, EAI, systems analysis, systems design
