Resiliency In Business Application Integration

Written byGuest Blogger

July 31, 2012

What happens when a business software application fails? Human intervenes. That’s the most common reaction.  This issue simulating conflicts or failures of software integration and/or automating system have been around since the early 80s. Two things can be attributed to this failure –  too much reaction or intervention of humans or the lack of it. Wrong decisions or the lack of plan in the event that a series of events occur that were deemed too unlikely to come into reality often comes in strings when humans intervenes.

When you look at the cause and effect of why a combination of improbable chain of proceedings add to that human interactions, you will find ways to develop application integration. At times you may require to generalize with other business integration software that will improve the operation side of your systems application. The most common overlooked in application integration software problem lies in the fact or the lack of system monitoring, log files of events and tracking matrix on every layer of the -system simply put it – documentation. The business system that we developed should be transparent to us, meaning every possible irregular occurring events should be noted and analyze corresponding reactions and its equivalent results. Doing things over and over again using various scenarios and actions until the event of failure is taken note of subjecting and planning additional parameters that will supply definitive reaction to each identified event.

When you develop a business application software, put into mind that people will be using it, in fact people of various capacity and state of thinking. When you think of it trying to prevent human error from causing more harm in the application software leads into further complicating the business software. What you do is usually to build up more means of operator to interact with the system.  To make the business system application resilient to failure one should make a ‘replication’ or duplicating procedures that will assist you to implore more reliable solutions.

Failures have the tendency to propagate through several layers in a business application system, in fact the more we try to solve one thing without deep examination and analysis causes more issues to arise. The thing is that you have to have ways of isolating the root cause of the error before even proceedings.  Thus, we suggest to practice failure in so many ways that way users will be provided with adequate scenarios of failure that they may be able to respond accordingly limiting further system fixings.

With this knowledge at hand, train and re-train the users essentially putting them in the most common area of miscalculations and event horizons. The purpose of which is that to make people analytic and well aware of how to react in various business application software flaws.  By allowing self training and system error logging every system user were able to gain and have themselves equipped with proper knowledge allowing them to use the system with confidence both to themselves and the integrated system itself.
