Eight Show-Stopper Problems with Current Integration Broker Technology

Integration broker Technology is relatively matured and is now offered by several Application Server providers and Packaged Application vendors including BEA, TIBCO, WebMethods, SeeBeyond, IBM, Vitria and Microsoft. Despite this, a Forrester survey estimates that 64 percent of companies spend between 60 and 80 percent of their integration budget on consulting services, most of which go towards programming the infrastructure to connect and transfer data through the enterprise. The reason for these continued high costs lies in the fact that in real-world implementation conditions, current integration solutions from these vendors suffer from some critical problems resulting in rigid, complex implementations that are difficult to maintain and modify, leading to delayed projects, poor ROI and major cost overruns.

A must read for CIOs, Enterprise Architects and IT Managers contemplating any kind of integration effort, this paper documents eight critical implementation-level problems faced by current integration broker technology and describes how these limitations will continue to have a serious adverse impact. These problems have been documented based on feedback from real developer experiences with a variety of integration technologies. Learn how alternatives are now available in the form of flexible, scalable and easy-to-implement solutions that meet the needs of a growing and extending Enterprise and avoid the pitfalls that plague the majority of Integration Projects.
