EII's Enterprise Integration Vision

EII specializes in Enterprise Integration, a term that means different things to different people. We are often asked by our customers, precisely what do you mean by Enterprise Integration and what does it mean to provide Enterprise Integration solutions? We have found that the easiest way to answer this question is to describe the types of problems that we are often asked to solve and the solutions that we provide.

First, we provide a definition of Enterprise Integration:

Enterprise Integration is the alignment of strategies, business processes, and information systems, technologies, and data across organizational boundaries to provide competitive advantage. The process of achieving Enterprise Integration includes all managerial and technological factors that enable Cross-Functional Business Process Integration. The result is a customer-oriented management structure with information systems that are formally linked to processes and the integration of processes needed to establish/retain competitive advantage.

The predominant characteristic of our definition is that it describes a holistic management solution as opposed to a narrow technical solution. The methodologies for achieving Enterprise Integration could be applied to a wide range of problems and industries. EII has worked in many areas, but we specialize in Logistics and Supply Chain solutions that are enabled by the latest business process oriented solutions. Our solutions are enabled by technology, but our competitive advantage is in our ability to scope and solve complex problems.
