Enterprise Application Integration

As software vendors continually add functionality to their packages, the need for integration increases.  In many cases, organizations have chosen "best-of-breed" applications that must be integrated.  For example, a procurement suite (e.g., Purchasing, Accounts Payable, Inventory) from one vendor may need to be integrated with the financial suite (e.g. General Ledger) from a different vendor.
