Lower costs, less mistakes
Increased automation reduces costs and errors. Processing times are reduced
leading to improvement of co-operation and more flexible processes.
Simple to create connections open up new and flexible usage and functions.
If the same data (e.g. Contract data) is repeatedly manually entered (redundant)
then inconsistencies can arise which may result in mistakes during entering.
Coupling of heterogeneous software systems
EAI enables the linking of different applications from different Producers. One
is therefore not forced to commit to only a single software producer.
Simplified replacement of individual software components
EAI simplifies the replacement of single software products (e.g. new releases or
software from a different manufacturer), since communication is done via a
central integration system, and only one interface needs to be adjusted.
Integration instead of migration
EAI allows the continued use and binding of legacy-systems, without costly
software re-engineering, reverse engineering or re-implementation.
Flexible and agile business processes
EAI allows modular assembly of business processes and work flows, whilst
simplifying changes leading to a better business process optimisation and more
