Introduction

This Ovum Decision Matrix (ODM) presents the result of a comprehensive evaluation of the MWaaS suites of key middleware vendors to answer the questions of enterprise IT leaders tackling complex hybrid integration issues arising from fast-changing digital business requirements. Enterprise IT leaders should consult this ODM to shortlist the appropriate middleware vendors for a RFP and subsequent proof-of-concept evaluation.

Highlights

  • MWaaS adoption in enterprises is both for strategic and tactical hybrid integration initiatives. Major middleware and leading cloud-based integration platform vendors dominate this market, although their routes to the development of a MWaaS suite are rather different.
  • A comprehensive MWaaS suite combines iPaaS, apiPaaS, MBaaS, and other cloud-based integration services, such as data-centric PaaS and cloud-based B2B integration services, to offer a cohesive set of integration capabilities required to support digital business.

Features and Benefits

  • Understand which middleware vendors are better placed to meet cloud, API creation and API management, B2B, and mobile application integration requirements via a well-integrated MWaaS suite.
  • Understand which iPaaS vendors can effectively meet the requirements of API-led integration and API management, B2B, and mobile application integration.

Key questions answered

  • Which vendors are stronger in terms of cloud, API creation and API management, B2B, and mobile application integration capabilities?
  • Which vendors have high scores across the "technology" and "execution and market impact" dimensions?
