An enterprise cooperative environment is combination of emerging technologies and methodologies on which both enterprise employee and customers can perform necessary business activities. A business activity will involve many systems of an enterprise. Integration between those systems becomes a critical issue because inter-/intra- enterprises will have heterogeneous systems. Recently, many new technologies boost the evolution of the integration toward a more efficient and effective computing. Enterprise has to choose suitable technology as integration platform to make value. However, only a few enterprises can really utilize those technologies because they do not have a proper infrastructure. Those technologies lose their advantages. In this paper, we design an infrastructure to provide the integration platform. It is iCell that provides flexible and useful mechanism to archive business operation. It is light-weigh architecture and can be adopt into existed enterprise environment easy. Based on the mechanism, the integration becomes possible and constructing enterprise cooperative becomes easy.
