Knowing the Siebel Architecture

Siebel is the leader in customer relationship management. That is why many are seeing through the Siebel architecture to learn about the greatness of its different software applications. Among the unique qualities of the Siebel architecture are the three layers it has for its applications. These are the user interface objects layer, business objects layer, and data objects layers.

The user interface objects layer contains the different visual elements that are used to interact with the user. Meanwhile, the business objects layer has both the business objects and business components. The business component is a necessary business module that includes the multiple fields that represent it. The business objects, on the other hand, has the collection of the various related business components. There is the so-called Siebel connector that communicates with the business object layer through the Siebel Java Data Bean. Lastly, the data objects layer has the objects definitions that give a logical representation of the basic physical database. Compared to the other two layers, the data objects layer is independent from the installed relational database management system. This layer is also not accessible through the Siebel Java Data Bean, unlike the business objects layer.

Aside from the different layers found in the architecture of Siebel applications, there are still other various unique qualities on them. Example of this is the distinctive Siebel environment which has implementations that demonstrate many servers of an enterprise. Siebel architecture is also unique with its five different client types. Each of these client types has their own architecture that makes them stand-out from other similar applications.
