Transport Mechanisms

Many companies have standardized transport solutions such as MQSeries from IBM or MSMQ from Microsoft. These transports allow the transportation of messages between one system and another. Siebel Systems conforms to this standard by allowing you to "plug" Siebel Financial Services applications into these environments through Siebel Financial Services eAI's comprehensive set of adapters, that include the MQSeries adapter, the MSMQ adapter, the HTTP adapter, and technologies that support BizTalk.

Transport adapters developed by Siebel Systems and Siebel-certified partners allow diverse applications to communicate with Siebel Financial Services applications across virtually any operating system, network, and database. Figure 6 shows the various available transports to and from Siebel Financial Services applications as a new customer's information is processed. Any one or any combination of these transports could be used in an integration solution, depending upon existing applications and other factors.
