Types of Integration

Integration architecture is usually built systematically in several layers. The idea behind this is to break the problem into several smaller problems and solve each sub-problem step by step (similar to, for example, the way in which network architecture is broken up into layers, as defined by ISO OSI). Therefore, today integration can be seen in several layers. We usually start building the integration architecture at the lowest layer and climb gradually. Omitting a layer is a short-term solution to speed up the process, but we will almost certainly have to pay back this time later. The most important types of integration are:

  • Data-level integration
  • Application integration
  • Business process integration
  • Presentation integration ...
