A recent press release reports, “Liaison Technologies, a recognized leader in cloud-based integration and data management solutions released a report: The Great Middleware Transition, developed in partnership with Aberdeen Group, a leading industry analyst firm. The report examines the state of integration middleware solutions in today’s business environment, which is being disrupted by the rise in the number of cloud applications and data sources. Authored by Research Analyst Michael Caton, and based on comprehensive research conducted by Aberdeen, the report brings important new facts to light on how enterprises are reacting to a change in business strategy as profound as the Industrial Revolution—Digital Transformation. The complimentary report is available here.”
The release continues, “Among the report’s most significant findings are: 76% of surveyed organizations plan to fully or partially replace their integration middleware platforms. 84% of all middleware will be replaced in the next four years. Only 30% of those surveyed are considering on-premises solutions. 84% of companies surveyed have 50 or more business applications to integrate. ‘The numbers we discovered are surprising to see,’ said Caton. ‘IT organizations are about to undertake one of the most dramatic infrastructure shifts we’ve seen in 20 years, and the transition will be to the cloud. This shift makes sense as companies look for greater flexibility, scalability, and predictable cost models.’ The primary driver for IT to shift integration middleware platforms—many of which were introduced more than 20 years ago—to newer cloud-based solutions, is increasing demand for integration between business applications. The survey showed IT organizations feel pressure to keep integration costs down while finding developers with sufficient skills and expertise to handle the growing number of integrations between increasingly disparate applications and data sources.”
