Information Logistics Service Router. An ESB for integrating enterprise services
Jupiter System Partner is currently working on a product idea called Information Logistics. The product focuses on collecting information via modules from several services in an enterprise system. The product will be based upon financial systems which can be customized via modules. Specifically, the product will be based upon their existing system called eSecretary which extends the economy system with a document storage where invoices, packaging documents and signatures can be stored. One of the limitations addressed by the managers at Jupiter is the lack of an integration platform where the modules and implementation can be gathered. Part of the Information Logistics product idea is a web interface where customers which have issued invoices can check the progress of their orders. This is currently not possible as the eSecretary system is deployed in company domains. The managers have therefore posted a request for a platform which will publish functionality for checking order progress and other modules. This thesis addresses the request and presents Information Logistics Service Router, an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) which integrates the eSecretary web service and other services and applications into a common access point. Information Logistics Service Router is a BizTalk application which serves as a basis for the Information Logistics product idea. The system integrates applications and services into a common access point using the BizTalk platform. The evaluation of Information Logistics Service Router shows that the system implements a simple, but useful integration basis for Information Logistics compared to other integration platforms such as Mule ESB and IBM WebSphere MQ.
