Identity Service Using Enterprise Service Bus

Time 11/03/10 04:30PM-05:30PM

Session Abstract

Emory University has established a strategic direction in its IT operations to utilize Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) to streamline the integration among various applications. ESB offers multiple messaging modalities and a set of common enterprise services to ease the burden of integrating a large number of heterogeneous applications within a large enterprise. OpenEAI, an open source ESB, has been selected as the integration platform. ESB serves as the backbone for Emory University to build a service-oriented IT architecture to foster collaboration and innovation, and to increase its returns on IT investment.

One common integration task at Emory is for an application to acquire identity data from PeopleSoft or other authoritative sources. An Identity Service using ESB has been developed for this purpose. A number of common enterprise objects have been developed, including Person, SponsoredPerson, Employee, Student, NetworkIdentity, for this purpose. A set of corresponding enterprise messages have also been developed. Identity data changes are detected at scheduled interval. Create, delete, and update messages are published to the enterprise service bus. Any authenticated/authorized application can listen and consume those messages to apply changes. Applications can also query the Identity Service for specific enterprise identity objects they are interested.
