Nowadays expectations for IT solutions in business are fairly high. Probably the most important criteria for these solutions is the ability to integrate them. The previously used modules were heterogeneous and separated, but now it is getting more important to connect the systems running on different platforms also at large companies.
To deal with the new challenges, a new paradigm was created, which implements integration effectively, and declares how to create complex but manageable systems. This new integration scheme is called Service Oriented Architecture (SOA).
The central element of Service Oriented Architecture is the Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), which has key role, as it is responsible for the integration of services. It is able to implement this central integration on enterprise level, via hiding the differences between the components' data representation and protocol.
The achievements of the thesis:
I conducted bibliographic research, where I became familiar with SOA, ESB and further technologies and standards, necessary to accomplish the task.
I created a simulation for inter-bank systems using IBM ESB solutions, focusing on the bank, which started the transfer. The solutions was provided for the whole work process from design to implementation.
