Our annual evaluation of application, process and data integration solutions is now available on our Web site; "2010 Update: Evaluating Integration Alternatives" by Forrester analysts Ken Vollmer, Rob Karel and Noel Yuhanna.
Here's the executive summary:
"Just as in 2009, technical innovation and merger and acquisition (M&A) activity have continued to have a significant impact on the integration space. The most common trend has been the expansion of existing
products and services to the point where boundaries between specific integration market categories have blurred considerably and application, process, and data integration are no longer isolated islands of functionality. Enterprises should consider responding to this trend by consolidating their varied integration resources into a single shared services group (an integration competency center) that will be
able to deal with a multitude of interconnected integration challenges in the most effective manner.
The report provides detailed analysis of application, process and data integration solutions and provides guidance on how to successfully navigate the complex area.
