OpenEAI Presentation Details - JA-SIG Summer 2007 Conference

OpenEAI President Tod Jackson & MAXIMUS Present: "Integrating the SchoolMAX Enterprise Student Information System with the OpenEAI Open Source Enterprise Service Bus"

Track: Projects, Applications, & Solutions, Tuesday, June 26, 2007 2:00PM-3:00PM

This presentation will show how, without modification to the system, SchoolMAX Enterprise can be plugged into the OpenEAI Sample Enterprise and integrated with uPortal, Sakai, CAS, OpenLDAP, a data warehouse, and other systems, using both the exposed service interface and using generalized connectors that can be used to expose any system. To plug SchoolMAX into the OpenEAI sample enterprise, all that is required are transformations from MAXIMUS objects to other systems' objects implemented in the ESB middleware.

MAXIMUS is one of America's leading government services companies devoted to providing program management, consulting and information technology services. The Company has more than 5,200 employees located in more than 220 offices in the United States, Canada and Australia. In 1999, 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2005 MAXIMUS was selected by Forbes Magazine as one of the Best 200 Small Companies in America for that year. Additionally, MAXIMUS is included in the Russell 2000 Index and the S&P SmallCap 600 Index.

About the OpenEAI Project

The OpenEAI Project is an open-source project dedicated to discovering and documenting the controlling dynamics, principles, and practices of enterprise application integration and to present, implement, and promote those findings to its members and community through the open source licensing of its software. The Project is comprised of six distinct, but closely-related departments, which address OpenEAI Methodology, Application Foundation APIs, Message Object API, Message Definitions, Reference Implementations, and Deployment and Administration which together form the foundation of the OpenEAI ESB.
