TECHNOLOGY AUDIT - Fiorano ESB™ 3.7
Fiorano Enterprise Service Bus is a distributed Peer-to-Peer (P2P) integration platform that supports rapid integration between existing applications as well as the development of composite applications in multiple languages. Integration has proved one of the biggest management headaches of recent years, as different applications need to integrate with each other in order to support business processes that cover a range of different application silos.
Fiorano ESB takes an incremental approach to integration, and its P2P approach avoids the bottlenecks of traditional hub-and-spoke architectures without losing management control of the network. Limited legacy application support makes this more suitable for organisations that have significant J2EE investments.
