Why Read This Report

Open source and cloud-based integration solutions are becoming more prevalent in many organizations. Still, many others are resisting these new alternatives, sometimes based on rational concerns but in many cases due to outdated perceptions related to security exposures. This report examines current trends for both of these technologies and provides application development professionals and enterprise architects guidance on how to fairly evaluate their potential for improving enterprise integration solutions.
