Appvance Inc., a leader in application performance-security technology, announced today the completion of a ground-breaking study comparing the performance and costs of leading integration / middleware platforms. These include offerings from IBM, Red Hat (RHT), Oracle (ORCL), SoftwareAG and TIBCO (TIBX).

While we want everyone to download the Knowledge Kit to see for themselves, the clear winner this year is TIBCO. TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks was as much as 35% faster for developer productivity than all the rest."
