Joint Venture IT Requirements
• Production reporting at defined intervals of
• Tracking of variable costs during defined
  intervals of processing
          The Opportunity
• New systems to support mining and
  extraction of bitumen
• New systems to track variable costs for
• New configurations of existing systems
• Enterprise Application Integration (EAI)
  tools are finally ready
          The Challenge
• Rapid evaluations and timely selection
  of EAI tools
• Rapid implementation EAI infrastructure
• Integration of several heterogeneous,
  geographically diverse systems
• Learning what’s the hard part
• Learning what’s the easy part
   Rapid Evaluation & Timely
• Review of existing software investments
• Head to head evaluation of short listed
  EAI applications
  – Criteria
     •   Functionality
     •   Flexibility
     •   Existing out of box adapters to applications
     •   Integration development effort
     •   Maintainability and support
       Rapid Infrastructure
• Creation of Integration Department
• Internal Education:
  – what EAI is
  – what EAI can do
  – when EAI should be used
• Establishment of development, test and
  production environments
