Definition - What does Integration Architecture mean?
Integration architecture is a software architecture that facilitates the integration of multiple IT components. This architecture changes with the advances in cross-platform utility and other development paradigms for new kinds of digital operations.
Techopedia explains Integration Architecture
Using tools like APIs, middleware and other resources, engineers cobble together workable architectures that successfully integrate their many parts. When applied to business, this is often called enterprise application integration, and is done to support key business goals.
Another way to think about integration architecture is as the "skeleton" of an IT system or, as some experts call it, the "plumbing" of a system. There are different methods, like point-to-point integration, and different "topologies" for integration that make a difference in design.
