Often, an application needs to communicate with the various upstream systems to consume data and downstream systems to supply data, so it is essential to establish that communication seamlessly.

For example, an e-commerce application needs to work with other applications in the supply chain management ecosystem. This includes enterprise resource planning applications to keep a record of all transactions, transportation life cycle management, shipping companies, order management, warehouse management, and labor management.

All applications should be able to exchange data seamlessly to achieve an end-to-end feature from customer order to delivery. You will encounter similar use cases everywhere, whether it is a healthcare application, manufacturing application, or telecom application.
