COTS in a Reactive Architecture - James Lovell, Improving Ottawa (YoppWorks)

We will be discussing a pattern to integrate a COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) solution within an enterprise in a reactive way. In many cases it makes sense for a business to acquire a COTS solution to solve a particular business need. However, rarely are these systems implemented in a reactive way, making it challenging to work with when you are trying to make your enterprise more reactive. This pattern identifies a system within an enterprise landscape that the business finds value in and elevates it without rewriting it. The issue we are trying to solve is to make it fit safely within the rest of the enterprise, not strangle it out. We are trying to clarify its place and magnify its value for the enterprise. In other words, we want to bring appropriate focus to the system by defining its purpose, detangling it from the rest of the enterprise, and elevating it to a position where it can provide the value it was acquired for.
