Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) technologies support a direct move away from disparate systems operating in parallel towards a more common shared architecture, where systems evolve and merge together. Such an emergence however, presents a paradigm shift in the way that Information System (IS) lifecycles are viewed. The integration of IS in-line with the needs of the business is altering IS identity and extending their lifecycle. This makes evaluating the full impact of the system

The authors demonstrate, through a case study of IS applications within an e-Government framework, that EAI can be used as a portfolio of technologies that improves infrastructure integration. However, in doing so, the authors create the need to re-think traditional IS-Lifecycle norms.
