Enterprise Interceptor: A framework for applications interchangeability
Business have invested heavily toward business system applications in an effort toward process standardization and having a single version of the truth data-wise to no avail. Most businesses application architecture is littered with various enterprise business application solutions without ever achieving the promise of standardization on a single application footprint, or ever achieving the single version of the truth. ^ We can walk into Home Depot today and buy a standard bathroom sink faucet that we like from any manufacturer, bring it home and install it on our bathroom sink. This is the same with practically all the components used in our homes, from the windows, to the tubs, to the sinks and so on. This is achieved obviously because of standards, but the standards do not limit one to the point where they are difficult to implement. For example, you can have bathrooms of all sizes using standard components. The standards in this case do not limit the size of the bathroom that one desires. We have made great strides in Information Technology (IT) in the area of object reusability applications and data integrations. However, we are constantly building and rebuilding databases/applications, moving data from one database/application to another over and over again. ^ This research will show how to we can utilize the Structured Query Language (SQL) Interceptor to help rational data movement among business application, and a mechanism toward business applications functionality interchangeability. The Interceptor deployed as a web services application, provides the middleware interoperability framework we are looking for to seamlessly integrate disparate business applications without impinging on the sources application or the target application. The Enterprise Interceptor: A Framework for Applications Interchangeability can be utilized to transform not only the way we build applications today, but the way we build applications in the future and how to better integrate our existing disparate business applications. By introducing the same principles and concepts as used in the construction of our homes, we can streamline applications deployment to the assembly of components from different vendors. Business application architect can then map the data to the targeted base repository. ^
