Boulder, CO (PRWEB) November 06, 2012
Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), a leading IT and data management research and consulting firm, today announced the release of its newest Radar Report titled, EMA Radar for Integration Technologies for Hybrid Cloud: Q4 2012. This report identifies the leading vendors in this space based on key criteria identified by EMA Research Director, Application Management, Julie Craig.
Today’s companies are increasingly “integrating the Cloud”. SaaS to SaaS, on-premise to SaaS, and multi-platform integrations are commonplace. This Radar examines the technologies companies are using to accomplish these integrations, as well as the scenarios, roles, and processes that are driving this evolution.
This research represents a new take on integration, profiling solutions that support businesses as they increasingly embrace the Cloud. They are characterized by their pre-built support for IaaS, SaaS, and/or PaaS public Cloud services, and go beyond traditional on-premise integration products in terms of versatility and ease of use.
“The products in this study are diverse, yet they share common functionality addressing hybrid Cloud integration and governance,” said Craig. “For example, they vary considerably in terms of the types of integrations and platforms they support, ideal users, breadth of technology coverage, manageability, and cost efficiency. What they do have in common is that they provide the underlying glue supporting hybrid Cloud implementations in a wide variety of permutations.”
While most focus on data- or application-level integration for Software as a Service, several also have some level of support for Platform as a Service, and/or Infrastructure as Service (IaaS) integrations as well. The goal is to enable readers to make more informed choices in developing a short list of vendors to evaluate, regardless of what types of Cloud integration projects they have in mind.
An in-depth analysis of the following vendors is included in this new Radar Report:
