MODEL DRIVEN ARCHITECTURE BASED REAL-TIME ENTERPRISE INFORMATION INTEGRATION - An approach and impact on businesses

Vikas S. Shah

Abstract

The rapid advancements of enterprise applications urge organizations to access and process information in multiple incompatible systems accumulated as massive complex data in diversified formats due to lack of an accepted common base in the development community. EII solutions must provide interoperability across various software platforms with an ability to react and adapt enterprise operations in favor of continues internal and external environmental alterations dealing with time sensitive information. Concept of RTE is based upon the premise of getting the right information to the right people at the right time in “real time”. MDA specifications lead the industry towards interoperable, reusable, and portable software components as well as information models based on standard models. Recently, MDA is considered as another evolutionary step introducing an engineering discipline to practice pattern-based software development. In this paper, we present an innovative approach to achieve the notion of intelligent EII through combining respective strengths of MDA and RTE along with implications over existing business models.
