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.

In its eBook on quote-to-cash (Q2C), Salesforce describes Q2C as covering everything from the offer, order, and billing through revenue recognition and renewals, plus analytics.
