Business Integration and SOA

Perficient’s business integration software consulting practice specializes in Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), Business Process Management (BPM), Event-Driven Architecture (EDA), Complex Event Processing (CEP), Master Data Management (MDM) and Enterprise Application Integration (EAI). We often use these technologies together to modernize legacy application architecture and support mufti-channel user experiences such as portals, B2B APIs, social media and mobility applications.

Our services create a coherent architecture on which to rationalize and modernize legacy systems, automate and optimize business processes, and improve data quality and accessibility. We create flexible architectures and service-oriented business applications that enable enterprise agility.

Perficient has been practicing the SOA approach for more than ten years and we have built systems that include hundreds of business services for Fortune 500 companies. These systems are some of the largest and most complex SOA implementations in the world.

Through our many client engagements and rigorous capture of best practices, we have built SOA methodology, patterns and standards that are unrivaled in the industry. Our SOA methodology covers the complete services lifecycle from strategic concepts such as roadmaps and governance models to standards for development, testing and running large-scale SOA infrastructures.

We partner with the leading software vendors in the industry including IBM, Oracle, TIBCO, SOA Software, Vordel, ITKO, JBoss, Mule and many others. We have captured and created best practices and standards for these technologies and have a process for customizing these standards to our client’s needs.

Perficient’s proven SOA methodology is called the Quick Start Rulebook (QSR). The QSR defines an approach to designing business services, events, rules, business processes, common business objects, and the common components to support SOA.

Our more than 250 successful SOA projects – including some of the largest ever undertaken – have given us the insight and experience necessary to create industry-leading service and solution offerings that quickly add value to SOA efforts and business process automation.
