Method and System for Automatically Integrating One or More Unique Software Products During Installation

Disclosed is a method and system for integrating one or more unique software products for improving time to value and reducing manual configuration efforts required to integrate the one or more unique software products.

Figure illustrates an exemplary architecture of the system for integrating the one or more unique software products.

The system includes a Data Integration Service (DIS) that interacts with the one or more software products for the purpose of integrating the one or more software products. In accordance with the method disclosed herein, software products register with the DIS during their installation phase. While registering with the DIS, host information such as password, product, database access information are also passed to the IDS. This information is stored in a sensitive product information (SPI) vault of the DIS and is made available only to other products in a family with access to the DIS.

Subsequently, when a new software product gets installed, the DIS checks for potential integration with existing software products. The DIS determines integration points associated with the existing software products. Accordingly, appropriate host information is pulled from DIS and local xml/data/db files are automatically updated. This provides out of the box integration capabilities without requiring any manual configuration. Further, addit...
