This paper argues that technical integration is not the only reasonable choice in situations where access to data and functionality from different sources is critical. Rather, user interface integration, an approach in which integration takes place primarily in the mind of the user, can be a more favorable option. In this paper, CWT Connect, a travel management portal developed by Carlson Wagonlit Travel, is taken as a case of user interface integration. The paper starts with outlining frequent problems in integrating information systems and discusses how the portal metaphor is related to integration. The case of CWT Connect and its application at electrical engineering provider Cegelec is then depicted in detail. The following discussion outlines how the approach contributed to the objectives of both companies, why more extensive technical integration was inappropriate in the particular scenario, and what limitations and shortcomings result from user interface integration in the particular case.
