icon-WP-gartner-magicquadrantOrganizations have often struggled with finding an effective way to unify and integrate disparate applications. Gartner’s 2012 Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure for Systematic Application Integration Projects report puts the spotlight on best practices on application integration, market trends and technological advancements.

The leading analyst firm’s researchers have spent plenty of time vetting application integration providers and their application technology portfolios. After evaluating how well 16 vendors and their products met a wide range of criteria—including completeness of vision and ability to execute—Gartner placed SEEBURGER in their “Visionaries” category. Businesses placed in the category demonstrate innovation from a product and technology innovation perspective. They have significant investments in integration technology, and their prospects for survival and growth depend on their ability to establish a strong presence in the market for application infrastructure for application integration. However, the products of some larger Visionaries have relatively small installed bases; in some cases, their production readiness is not fully proved via a spectrum of mission-critical deployments.)

Through diligent and focused execution, some Visionaries could become Leaders, but the likelihood is small. Limited sales, marketing, engineering and support resources create enormous obstacles for such ambitions. Many of these vendors are likely to merge or be acquired by larger companies, but some offer excellent and highly innovative products that outperform large vendors’ offerings.

Often, products from vendors in the Visionaries quadrant can be used with point products from other vendors to create a comprehensive middleware infrastructure that has all the features offered by the one-stop-shopping suites of larger vendors in the Leaders quadrant.

Finding a comprehensive application infrastructure solution that meets the need for B2B, A2A, data and cloud integration can be a mind bender with today’s overwhelmingly large number of choices. With the engineering and vision to back it up, SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite (BIS) is a complete consolidation solution that remains the platform of choice for thousands of global innovators.
