Session 2: What type of IS integration ? Loosely coupled ?

In this session we will discuss the information system integration . It has been largely dominated by the enterprise system perspective. This type of integration seems to be pre-Internet and induces difficulties in the implementation due to the fact that the organizational aspects of this technology has not been understood by companies. We will then present new type of architecture (SOA), and new type of technologies (web services) as they offer a radically different potential for the networked company. Slides from this session will be available here.
