Accelerating Information System Interoperability for Secured Business Processes Automation
Faced with increased information privacy legislation, organizations must secure their online, automated business processes with partners to meet corporate governance obligations. They are challenged to achieve these goals because their information systems, such as HR, ERP, CRM, finance, and sales were not designed to provide the secure interoperability required for automating business processes. An emerging alternative model for Services-Oriented Architecture (SOA) deployment includes a network-embedded SOA backbone that provides IT system interoperability for corporate-wide security and regulatory compliance. This network-based approach provides significant advantages because it is application - independent, needing no modification to web services-aware applications, and reduces the TCO for IT systems.
