Project Plan and Priority Task List
US Interactive has extensive experience implementing complex integration projects. We will define a complete project plan outlining the tasks, deliverables and resources to be used.

Technical Architecture and Design
Based on the functional requirements, our architects would identify and recommend the architecture and technology options for you that would provide scalability, performance and reliability. US Interactive has an extensive set of pre-built user interaction flows, business process definitions and application connectivity adapters. Where applicable these will be considered in order to reduce the costs and time of development. These pre-built components can be used either with US Interactive's award winning e2eHub EAI framework, or with other supported 3rd party eBusiness integration platforms. Architecture definition would include the logical and physical architecture for hosting the solution. The design will cover all the aspects of functionality, usability, reliability, performance, scalability and operational manageability.

EAI: Modeling Distributed Business Processes
Distributed business processes spanning different backend enterprise applications would be defined at this time. This would typically require a Business Process Management tool. If US Interactive's e2eHub is used, the e2e Hub provides a robust and sophisticated graphical Business Process Designer. This enables very rapid configuration of the data flows required to support your particular business processes. In addition, US Interactive also has pre-built business process definitions for most customer facing CRM processes, and where applicable these will be considered in order to reduce the costs and time of development.
If the client has already invested in business process definitions based on existing EAI investments like BEA, Tibco, webMethods, etc, US Interactive's approach to Unified Views would leverage those investments.

EAI: Application Connectivity
Application connectivity can be a resource intensive challenge and a key element of the Integration solution. US Interactive has more than 50 man-years of developing Application connectivity to different generations of Enterprise applications in a seamless fashion. We have developed a complete framework of connector engineering tools and components that enable us to very rapidly develop a connector to your specific application. We work with any systems whether they are developed using JAVA or C++ environment; client server based applications; or legacy applications. Through these pre-built connectors, US Interactive's e2e Hub offers "out of the box" connectivity to many major applications. However, our teams have also built connectors for other leading middleware products from BEA, Tibco etc. and these components can be a complement to these other EAI products, enabling rapid integration at low cost.

Unified View: Modeling User Interaction Flows and Business Flows
A user centric view of the enterprise's business processes leads to superior user experience, customer satisfaction and productivity gains. US Interactive has developed the "eFlows" tool, part of e2eHub, to model the user interaction flows and business flows. The e2eHub is based on J2EE standards and is implemented on BEA WebLogic app server. We also have pre-built flows for most customer facing processes like order entry etc. Where applicable, these pre-built components will be considered in order to reduce the development cost and time. Or if the client has investments other platforms such as BEA WebLogic Integration or Tibco's ActivPortal, we will incorporate those investments into the overall approach.
If target presentation devices include wireless devices, we would develop appropriate user interaction flows for those devices as well. If US Interactive e2ehub is used, flows for wireless devices can be developed rapidly and easily using the "eFlows" tool; if the company has invested in other platforms for delivering wireless applications, we will leverage those invesments in the solution approach.

Unified View: User Experience development
High quality, branded user experience is an important element in eBusiness. The user experience look and feel would be developed around the user interaction flow templates. This would also include any personalization required. This would the visible part of the unified view to the end user constituents: customer, partner and enterprise employee. User experience as appropriate for the targeted end-user devices would be developed.

Solution deployment, Integration testing and User Testing
US Interactive will deploy the solution on a staging system in order to perform integration testing of all the components of the solution. User testing with participation of potential end-users also would be performed. US interactive can assist in this or the client can own the responsibility of the user testing.

Data Migration and Data Load
US Interactive will provide services to migrate existing data into new applications, including conversion of data; we will provide services for the initial data load and any development services required for data synchronization.

Pre-production Planning, Launch Support, Production Readiness
US Interactive will help plan and support the production launch of the new system, and provide guidelines for production readiness. US Interactive will also provide services to create operational run-books for operational staff on the production system.

Post-production Operational Support
US Interactive will provide post-production operational management support for the deployed solution to ensure uptime and assist with functions such as backup/restore, archival activities, and system maintenance activities.

Offshore Development Services
In addition to on-site services, US Interactive has proven offshore development and quality services with over 150 man years of experience in delivering integration solutions. This can greatly reduce your cost of development, and US Interactive is one of the few companies that has been able to make offshort development really work. We have an excellent track record and extensive experience in distributed development with on-site and offshore resources to balance the costs and optimize the execution time.
