Learn How To Embrace Lightweight ESBs

Lightweight ESBs Should Be An Option Within Your SOA Strategy

    Why Read This Report

    Enterprise service buses (ESBs) come in a wide range of shapes and sizes, and some are so loaded with capabilities that they can take months to fully implement. Such complexity is one reason why developers often seek the simple solution: a lightweight ESB. Yet this choice may result in long-term problems for enterprise architects who are trying to optimize infrastructure across multiple projects. To resolve this tension, architects should embrace simplicity and guide developers toward lightweight solutions that can also fit into a broader enterprise service-oriented architecture (SOA) strategy, rather than fighting simplicity and being seen as agents of complexity.
