Siebel EAI is the domain that deals with integrating siebel to other hetrogenous and homogenous systems or Applications such as Java, .Net and siebel itself.
EAI stands for Enterprise Application Integration. It is according to me is one of the most intresting and challenging jobs in siebel. If you love web and web related things then you are going to love it too. But beware you might end up spending sleepless nights (just kidding, but still you need to put a lot of hard work). The most common implementation of EAI today is Web Services. To get more information on Web Services you can go through articles on Web Services and Web Service PPT that I created during my intial days of working on EAI.Siebel EAI can be summarised by following points
- Integration with other Applications such as .Net, Java and Siebel Itself.
- Integrating with the help of 3rd Party Middlewares such as TIBCO, MQ Series, BizTalk, Oracle Apps etc.
- Integrating directly using Web Services.
- Understanding of XML, XSD, HTTP is desirable.
