The sub-set of the English language that is AEM-based jargon uses the word, integration, in the way defined within Wikipedia as “system integration:”
In information technology, systems integration is the process of linking together different computing systems and software applications physically or functionally, to act as a coordinated whole.
Since Adobe has many complementary, but separate, applications that can provide even greater benefits to their customers when used together, “integration” gains prominence when speaking of using Adobe Experience Manager to its full potential. In addition, OSGi forms the functional framework behind AEM. With its modular design it encourages adding building blocks that go wild with all sorts of interactions between applications and services.
Jakub Kaniewski presented at the Connect Web Experience in Basel, Switzerland, three types of integrations with AEM 6. He showed off symbiotic relationships between AEM and FrameMaker, PhantomJS/SlimerJS, and GeoSpatial data within Solr.
