EAI application integration has become vital to every large organization. EAI provides the ability to respond to changing market demands, seize new market opportunities, improve customer service, and achieve business growth potential. Competitive pressure to lower costs and deliver universal information across an enterprise fuels the trend toward EAI. The ability to incorporate and exploit existing information systems, prior technology investments, independent legacy systems, and other established applications and databases depends on use of EAI.

EAI message broker integration engines are groups of modules that interact to route messages from one application or database to another, outside the application. Routing may occur in a hub structure, linearly pushing information to the entire network, or in an IP style. Message brokering adds value during the routing process. EAI frameworks leverage investment in message broker suits by providing integration of best of breed EAI routing, transformation, adapter, and rules engines. Frameworks provide facilities for interconnection in a wide variety of existing application environments.
