The article “Architectures in context: on the evolution of business, application software, and ICT platform architectures” discusses that with recent advances in information technology (IT) including the internet and e-business technologies, the need for achieving business continuity based on continuous computing (CC) technologies became even more critical. Therefore, business continuity management (BCM) should be an essential part of any contemporary organization's information management. BCM involves several measures and activities that have to be planned in order to have higher availability ratios of an information system. Most of these measures and activities are inter-dependent, hence an integrated solution is needed. A framework for developing an integrated operating environment (IOE) for business continuity was developed and is presented in this paper. The primary goal of such integration is to enhance the levels of enterprise information systems' availability, reliability and scalability, thus, to achieve CC as a main prerequisite toward business continuity. Important components of the framework are a set of CC drivers (enablers) and the features of contemporary servers and server operating systems (SOS) that need to be integrated.

The article Exploring the relationship between information technology and business process reengineering” discusses that frequently used solutions are multi-functional systems and devices, integrated desktop applications, and integrated enterprise-wide systems such as enterprise resource planning (ERP), supply chain management (SCM), customer relationship management (CRM), business intelligence, integration protocols, middleware products and integrated systems management products. Published research articles on general aspects of systems integration tend to focus on both or one of data integration and application integration. Sage and Lynch (2004) provide an overview of principles, practices, and perspectives of systems integration and systems architecting.

The article Research commentary: introducing a third dimension in information systems design - the case for incentive alignment” states that the first three domains are mainly considered in the systems integration literature. Therefore, they put forward strategic model for implementing integrated IS which incorporates an organizational domain. Erasala et al. (2003) define EAI drivers as main factors driving the use of EAI in organizations: e-commerce, mergers and consolidations, ERP packages. Peak et al. (2005) present a case study in IT alignment planning.

This article “Ideal patterns of strategic alignment and business performance” discusses that the ultimate systems integration needs to address organizational problems that occur between IT subsystem and the rest of organization. For example, implementing an ERP system is a widely accepted solution to achieve an integrated enterprise information system. The ERP implementation requires many technical undertakings such as client-server setting, networking protocols, construction of master data, configuration of an ERP software, etc. However, an equally important aspect of this kind of systems integration is the re-engineering part of the organization. Moon (2007) provides a comprehensive literature survey on ERP systems and their issues. Chakraborty and Sharma (2007) presented an integrated strategic framework for identifying parameters in achieving successful ERP implementations. Aerts et al. (2004) discuss several models of ICT platform architectures and their role in IS development ...
