Abstract:

A thorough examination of the Secure Application Integration Methodology SAIM for applicability in the Department of the Navy DON would provide useful information about a beneficial methodology. SAIM is analyzed, by accessing its step by step directions, for suitability in the integration of the Enterprise Resource Planning ERP projects implemented by the SYSTEMS COMMANDS SYSCOMS. The Navy Enterprise Convergence Team NECT that leads the ERP integration effort could benefit from a sound Enterprise Application Integration methodology. Results do not support SAIM as the sole guiding EAI methodology however it could have some value to the NECT. SAIM has three primary benefits which NECT could employ 1 It provides a complete walkthrough of the EAI process, 2 It emphasizes the importance of an Enterprise Architecture, and 3 It provides useful management checklists along with other important considerations.
