Hi there AppWorks fans,
Finally, you landed on the page where your unexplained abbreviation will get a meaning! The list will be extended with new abbreviation during our AppWorks journey as a lot of these can be found in all the documentation and software.
Keep the page as a look-up to get more information. You can search for an abbreviation in the top search.
And here it is…The list:

A centralized system where we can store data in a structured way and collaborate on it
- EDO = Enterprise Data Object
- EIS = Enterprise Information System
AppWorks is an ‘Enterprise’ product/system as it can improve the enterprise business processes and can do all kind of integrations. It offers a high value service for large data that is used in large and complex organizations where information is key!

- ERM = Entity Relation Model
- ESB = Enterprise Service Bus
All the modules that are needed to send information from one service (Like is a SOA) to another and make sure they are also received in a secure way.

The spider in the web for the authentication handling for the OpenText services
- PAM = Pluggable Authentication Modules
- PCL = Process Component Library
This brings us all back to the basics and makes modules reusable. For our AppWorks platform there are reusable solutions available like for example ‘Service Center’ of ‘People Center’, but also reusable connectors are available to connect to other systems like for example ‘Documentum’

And this gives the overview for the AppWorks abbreviation list and we’ll probably never give it a ‘DONE’ as new abbreviation will be introduced. Have a nice day and see U on another post about AppWorks.
