BTR How to encounter today’s EAI messaging challenges

How to encounter today’s EAI messaging challenges
Enterprise integration is a critical part of today's company strategies. Integration projects are equally or even
more difficult than most application development efforts. This difficulty stems from complexities in both the
business and technical domains. Given the experiences with large application development efforts, embarking on
complex enterprise application integration (EAI) projects may scare many business sponsors and IT departments.
Once the EAI solution is implemented, IT Managers are facing challenges to find the right long-term balance between
cost control and user satisfaction of the services they are providing. Based on a research with different IT departments, we
have summarized the most common EAI related reasons:
Difficult to hire and retain IT people with the right skills to maintain and manage
Expensive training programs to maintain IT people’s knowledge
Difficult to integrate upgrades of or new business applications
Instability of the existing EAI solution
An important compelling event why e-Gate customers are facing these difficulties is the near retirement of their EAI solution.
Unfortunately is upgrading no longer an option. Sun’s acquisition by Oracle has caused a chain reaction of diminishing eGate and
JCAPS support. It is forcing many companies to evaluate alternative solutions which fit in CIO’s the long-term mission: deliver high
quality services with competitive budget to optimize economies of scale.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could just ask someone all those important questions or have someone assist you through the
complete lifecycle of your endeavor? Well, that’s where BTR Services can help and assist.
BTR helps to migrate your existing interfaces and flows from Sun Seebeyonds eGate to IBMs Websphere in an accurately and
cost-effective manner while also adopting a solution that provides more flexibility and stability. We use the IBM toolkit to migrate
your old existing code to new code usable in the Websphere solution.
