This slowly got bigger and bigger as I incorporated the knowledge and discussions I had with my colleague Andy Garratt. The document looked at EAI, ESB, FTP, TCP/IP, SOA, Middleware, Hub and Spoke, ACID, AIA, Microservices, REST, SOAP, XML and many many more integration topics to boot. There was so much in there, that we felt we needed to share the knowledge with the wider world to help set the context of integration to those new to the industry, and maybe even those who are already in the industry.
As of this week, we now have published "A History of Application and Service Integration" which is available to download and read on iBooks: https://books.apple.com/gb/book/a-history-of-application-and-service-integration/id1489103440
Below is the accompanying video that describes A brief History of Integration in under 3 minutes.
