  5. The Enterprise Framework Enterprise Portal CRM WFO ERP Publish /Subscribe Content/ KnowledgeMgt. Identity Mgmt Business Applications EIP / Add-on Service Apps Web Services: Workflow, Reporting, Security, Messaging, EAI, etc. Data Access Services: External, Internal Infrastructure / Enabling Technologies “The Enterprise Information Portal (EIP) as Information Aggregator”

  6. Enterprise Framework Characteristics • Scalable, Extensible and Secure • Standards-based (LDAP, X.509, XML, RosettaNet, etc.) • Modular EIP Functionality (gadgets, portlets, XpertLinX, etc.) • Platform Neutral • Vendor Neutral – modular • Robust • 100% XML where possible • Minimize use of applets / add-ins – thin presentation layer • Standard XML translation capabilities (XSLT) • Enable Best-of-Breed functionality through “plug-and-play” architecture • Minimize data redundancy

  7. Abstraction (integration of repositories) Individualized / Role-based access (taxonomies) Federated Search Visual Builders (customization / personalization) Federated Portals (integration with other portals) Enterprise Portal Objectives Enterprise Portal • Legacy Application Support • Internationalization • Mobile / Wireless Support • Offline / Remote Support • Web Collectors (e.g. scraping, content aggregation)

  8. Enterprise Portal ROI Drivers • New-style role-based interface • Advanced search capability • Aggregation of content • LDAP>Directory services • Advanced security and Single Sign-On • Application/process/data integration • Collaboration support • Expertise monitoring and knowledge capture • Business function and vertical industry specialization • Common Extranet, Intranet and Internet services backplane

  9. Contents • Solution Strategy • Enterprise Framework and Components • ERP / EIP Integration • Major Considerations • Alternative 1 – Complete EIP / Web Service Components • Alternative 2 – Maximized Use of ERP Components • Alternative 3 – Hybrid ERP / Web Services Components Summary • Recap • Enterprise Information Portals • Application Architecture

  10. EIP / ERP Integration – Major Considerations • The integration of an EIP with ERP features and capabilities has several complications. Factors include: • ERP portal robustness • ERP underlying web services – capabilities, openness and ease of use • Enterprise commitment to ERP • Web services used in other enterprise web-based apps • Web Services provided by third party providers • Enterprise disposition to approach • Factors can be considered both PRO and CON depending on overall architecture and disposition “Deciding on the ERP role in an enterprise framework is critical”

  11. Alternative 1:Complete EIP / Web Services Components Enterprise Portal 2 1 ERP • PRO: Web Services readily exposed • PRO: Web Services at leading edge • CON: Use of additional products 3 Web Services: Workflow, Reporting, Security, Messaging, EAI, etc. • PRO/CON: Does not rely on ERP portal CON: ERP probably requires modifications Overall • PRO: Ability to select best-of-breed web services / best available enterprise solution • PRO/CON: full ERP capabilities probably not utilized • PRO/CON: Lessened dependency on ERP • PRO/CON: Additional EIP product

  12. Alternative 2:Maximized use of ERP Components ERP Portal 2 1 Other Apps ERP • ERP exposes web services through it’s portal • PRO: No third party EIP investment • PRO: Few ERP modifications • CON: Potentially high per-seat charges • CON: Limited to ERP portal functions • PRO/CON: Committed to ERP / toolset 3 ERP Web Services: Workflow, Reporting, Security, Messaging, EAI, etc. • Other applications need to be integrated into portal framework with Single Sign-on • CON: ERP may not expose value-added functionality to other applications • Publish/subscribe • Alerts Other applications need modifications to utilize ERP web services: Workflow, Security, Messaging, etc. PRO/CON: ERP reliance CON: ERP capabilities may be lagging “ERP portals as an Enterprise asset requires a significant ERP commitment”

  13. Alternative 3:Hybrid ERP / Web Services Components ERP/EIP Portal 2 1 Other Apps ERP • ERP exposes web services through it’s portal • PRO: No third party EIP investment • PRO: Few ERP modifications • CON: Potentially high per-seat charges • CON: Limited to ERP portal functions • PRO/CON: Committed to ERP / toolset 3 4 ERP Web Services ERP Web Services Third-party Web Services: Workflow, Messaging, EAI, etc. 5 Overall • PRO: Flexibility to select ERP web services / pick best available enterprise solution • CON: Increased number of integration points • PRO/CON: Lessened dependency on ERP “The most flexible solution is also the most complicated”

  14. ERP Integration Recap • EAP Portals (Enterprise Application Portal) • Use of EAP may be indicated when organization is heavily entrenched in a single vendor solution, and: • Application toolset is recognized as enterprise standard • Other applications can be initiated via EAP • Other applications can easily utilize EAP web services (e.g. workflow, reporting, security, etc.) • EAP Web Services • EAP should contain services required for all web-based applications: • Workflow • Reporting • Messaging / Notifications / Alerts • Security • If deficient in any area, middleware may be required to satisfy business requirements • Applications, including EAP, may need to be modified to use middleware
