Integration architecture variants

The fundamental integration architecture variants are:

  • Point-to-point architecture: A collection of independent systems which are connected through a network.
  • Hub-and-spoke architecture: A further stage in the evolution of application and system integration, in which a central hub takes over responsibility for communications.
  • Pipeline architecture: In pipeline architecture, independent systems along the value-added chain are integrated using a message bus. The bus capability results in the distribution of the interfaces to the central bus throughout the communication network, which gives applications a local access to a bus interface.
  • Service-oriented architecture: The integration of different applications to form ...
