Case study of distributed multi-agent system application in manufacturing company information flow integration. Company structure is reflected in set of agents responsible for activities specific to organizational units. Agents interconnect diverse IT systems and integrate information from them, basing on asynchronous message passing communication. Findings: multi-agent systems are analogous to actor model, can work on top of existing IT solutions, utilize power of cloud computing and solve real information flow problems in enterprise applications, assisting in decision-making with high-quality integrated information.
