Most organizations require a mechanism to schedule high-volume integrations at a specific time, typically at night, to avoid network slowdowns or interference with other applications. Such integrations typically involve the updating of hundreds of millions of customer records. This type of activity requires a batch mechanism capable of processing such large amounts of data in a timely manner. Siebel Enterprise Integration Manager (EIM) allows you to schedule high-volume data exchanges between Siebel applications and other applications whenever needed, at whatever frequency required (twice a day, nightly, weekly, and so on).

About the Enterprise Integration Manager

EIM acts as a high-volume batch interface. With EIM, you can import and export data from the Siebel Database to other corporate databases. Figure 14 shows the EIM batch data process. EIM includes database profiling that improves performance by supporting index specialization in Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMS).
