Traditionally, EAI and application integration has been done using point to point interfaces or by utilizing commercial integration engines that each enterprise individually buys, installs, configures, and maintains at great expense in terms of license, administration, and maintenance resources.
However, in reality, there is only a finite set of integration patterns and connectors that are required to hook up different applications together and allow them to exchange data securely and efficiently. Basically, each of these companies is doing unnecessary extra work and paying unnecessary extra money.
Why should each enterprise need to reinvent the wheel of EAI/integration/ESB (Enterprise Service Bus)? It seems to me that the recent advances in cloud technology need to be applied to the Integration, EAI and ESB environments.
What if you had a very effective, lightweight, small-footprint Open Source ESB/Integration engine based on Open Source that runs in all flavors of cloud services? Why not have the ability to provision, monitor and manage your Composite/SOA/ESB/Integration/EAI applications to popular cloud services providing platform-as-a-service right from your IDE or web based Administration Console? I believe it’s not rocket science to be able to accomplish this and its benefit is very clear. That is what we do.
