Demystifying Enterprise Service Bus Technology
Learn how ESBs cut implementation complexities and dramatically reduce TCO of Integration projects
Over the past few years, the emergence of standards for enterprise communication, connectivity, transformation, portability and security have tried to simplify the enterprise Integration and middleware problem. The Enterprise Service Bus, a new variation of software infrastructure, has added to the range of standards-based technologies that enterprises can use as the enterprise-nervous-system backbone. This whitepaper tries to demystify the newly emerging Enterprise Service Bus technology and also examines the subtle but important differences in implementations of ESB technology by different vendors.
An ESB can be a sensible first step toward a systematic Enterprise Nervous System because it provides the basic connectivity backbone. It can interoperate with a variety of disparate application servers simultaneously, smoothing over technical differences and also providing services for communication and integration said Roy Schulte, VP and Research Fellow, Gartner Research.
