    Messaging middleware supports cross platform data transfer in a secure manner. Message queuing engines are positioned to support application transaction data sharing across applications and across operating systems. IBM MQSeries has become the defacto standard for transaction message data transfer.

    Modular, simple systems are the most successful in the market. They support ease of use. Modular applications tools are evolving above middleware messaging that will revolutionize application development. Systems can be evolved by looking at one record, and generalizing from that. The value of middleware messaging is in its simplicity. The need to protect that simplicity is the greatest challenge facing the existing vendor group.

    Message queuing engines are used to move data from distributed computing environments to back office processing centers.

Messaging Middleware

Markets Explode -- Strategic Options and Forecasts to 2001

 

 

Messaging middleware supports cross platform data transfer in a secure manner.  Message queuing engines are positioned to support application transaction data sharing across applications and across operating systems.  IBM MQSeries has become the de facto standard for transaction message data transfer. 

 

The value of middleware messaging is in its simplicity.  The need to protect that simplicity is the greatest challenge facing the existing vendor group. 

 

Modularity protects the simplicity of systems.  Simple systems are the most successful in the market.  They support ease of use.  Modular application tools are evolving above middleware messaging that revolutionize application development.  Application systems are being evolved that support applications development from looking at one record, and generalizing from that.

 

Message queuing engines are used to move data from distributed computing environments to back office processing centers.  Security and guaranteed delivery represent central data protections offered by middleware messaging systems.  These systems are built to scale so the ever increasing large volumes of transaction data can be managed very efficiently.  Message systems protect against loss of data when the connection between disparate systems is not available, or goes down.

 

Push computing has stimulated another type of middleware message passing by providing the base technology for distributed messaging systems.  These types of message systems are supporting data transfer across dispersed computing platforms, from one distributed system to another.  These systems are built to scale data transmission from one system to many.

 

 

        Explosive growth of messaging middleware markets has been stimulated by the Internet.
