Historically, business applications were built, deployed and managed separately by department and job function. EAI succeeded in transferring data from one application to another, but it failed to deliver a higher level of customer value. When Business Process Management (BPM) came onto the scene it was able to fill holes where EAI had failed including:
- Orchestrating business processes
- Triggering events
- Handling exceptions
- Ability to except change and collaboration needs
