With software as a service (SaaS) applications becoming the norm, ease of integration has emerged as a key consideration for organizations as they assess their software options. Companies want new apps to plug and play across diverse environments of best-of-breed cloud and on-premise systems. The last thing they want is a complex and months-long integration project.

As long ago as 2008, 451 Research noted that “the heyday of the enterprise service bus may have come and gone.”
Nine years later, it’s fair to ask whether legacy enterprise service bus (ESB) systems can possibly keep up with the data integration requirements of today’s enterprises.
