Synthesizing System Integration Requirements Model Fragments
Source: City University of Hong Kong
Systems integration is an enduring issue in organizations. Many organizations have often been faced with the predicament of managing large and complex IT infrastructures accumulated over the years. Before proposing suitable integration architecture and selecting appropriate implementation solutions, a holistic and clear understanding of the enterprise-wide integration requirements among various internal and external systems is needed. This paper builds on prior literature on conceptual modelling of integration requirements to present an algorithm that synthesizes model fragments, i.e., piecemeal sections of the integration requirements.
