Previously, business operations of most large enterprises were supported by a number of isolated IT systems performing diverse specific tasks, from real-time process control to administrative functionality such as payroll and billing. In order to better achieve business goals, these systems have in recent years been extended, and more importantly, integrated into a company-wide system in its own right, the enterprise IT system. Due to its history, this system is composed of a considerable number of heterogeneous components interacting by means of equally diverse connectors.
