Enterprise Architecture

Application integration

Discover how we work together with project teams to improve how the University's IT systems link to each other and how data flows between them, so that the systems provide a joined up service to our students and staff.

Examples of integration

There are several approaches that can be taken to integrate applications. We work with projects and services to choose a design that best fits each situation.

APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) are the connection points that allow IT systems to link with each other when they need data immediately.

Integration platforms

Our integration platforms connect different IT systems together, specifying which functions will be called and which data will flow between them.
