Canon’s Enterprise Imaging Platform (EIP)
EIP leverages Oracle Fusion Middleware

Service-oriented architecture 
(SOA) is a software design and software architecture design pattern based on discrete pieces of software providing application functionality as services to other applications. This is known as Service-orientation. It is independent of any vendor, product or technology

Industry veterans may immediately note that Xerox also uses the acronym EIP, which stands for Extensible Interface Platform. Xerox’s EIP is an embedded software platform used by Xerox’s own MFPs. However, Canon’s EIP is completely different than the similarly named technology from Xerox and does not rely on MFPs for the process to function, unless the process is specifically designed to include these devices. While the overlap in naming initially confused us, it was pretty clear the offerings were very different from the beginning.
