integration systems

Engineering defines system integration as a process of connecting the component subsystems into a single whole with the system’s overarching functionality. Information technology, in its turn, describes this process as different computing systems and software solutions combined to act as a coordinated whole.

System integration incorporates a range of methods to achieve this goal, including manual programming, business process management, enterprise application integration, and computer networking. Can you imagine that such complex processes may happen automatically and without a single line of code written by the person who creates the integration?
