Abstract

We identify important phases in managing enterprise integration projects so as to obtain consensus for integration requirements, select suitable integration technologies and estimate total cost of ownership with an integration project schedule. We propose an Enterprise Integration Project Management (EIPM) process where we identify the requirements of integration by modelling and analysing the organisations’ business process. Here, consensus among the stakeholders is obtained by allowing collaborative planning through the Delphi technique. The total cost of ownership for integration is estimated through software complexity metrics and the resource requirements based on the work breakdown structure. Further, for successful management projects, we demonstrate the application of the Distributed Arrival Time Control (DATC) algorithm for integration project management. The application of DATC allows us to generate adaptive schedules that meet due dates for management under highly uncertain tasks of enterprise integration. Finally, we present a case study to demonstrate the overall capabilities of EIPM.
