Today mergers of larger financial institutions are quite common place. You often find conglomerates that stem from a sequence of merger & acquisition activities. In each such case, IT management is confronted with more than one set of applications, often more than one IT service organization and the question is how to deal with such a situation. Typically management likes to reduce cost by migrating to just one application landscape and one IT service organization. This article describes a few observations and patterns how these challenges can be dealt with.

Von Workflow über EAI zu WebServices: see below - but for this conference in German
OOP 2005 // Mi 16, Wednesday, 26 JAN, 2005
17:15 - 18:15
From Workflow and EAI to Orchestration and Web Services (Slides - pdf)
and EAI have been the key to integration not long ago. While some people are
thinking in these terms, the software world has moved on to Web Services,
Service Oriented Architectures and Orchestration. This talk will give you a
summary of the evolution that led to the current view on integration
architectures. It gives you an idea of the architectural paradigm shifts in
the last two years. The talk will enable you to see what has changed, what
remains constant, and where large scale users have still their problem with
Web Services based integration. As examples we will use approaches from
large vendors. The technologies Web Services, Orchestration, Workflow, EAI,
Vitria, IBM Web Sphere Business Integration, SAP NetWeaver, SAP XI will also
be addressed in this session.
Software Architects who want to know how the current Orchestration and Web
Services hype relates to EAI, Workflow and current product offerings

Germania versus the Timeless Way of Building: A few remarks on how to sell Enterprise IT Architecture to your Peers and Bosses. (Slides - pdf)
|This talk gives you as
an enterprise architect a few hints how to manage the expectations of your
peers and bosses. The talk starts with the usual job description of an
Enterprise Architect. We propose city architecture and the pattern- based
philosophy of the timeless way of building and piecemeal growth. The talk
also presents a few rules on how to divide labour between the project
architects and the enterprise architects. And finally, on the important
topic of business alignment, the talk shows you a few things which are
essential at the very beginning of IT alignment.
