Overview

What’s the business case for middleware?

Integration with the systems of your partners, suppliers and customers is increasingly a necessity. Middleware is a technology layer which embeds agility into any architecture, decoupling applications, de-risking change initiatives and easing integration challenges. Middleware allows project teams to create an abstract layer that makes creating and managing data exchange between applications and out to external parties much easier. Middleware can be a technical catalyst that creates competitive advantage flowing from flexibility and agility. It is a strategic toolset which positions your organisation to rapidly and easily take advantage of new technology, increase automation, achieve ‘straight through’ processing, and manage by exception rather than rote.
 
Today, middleware is much more than integration. As a strategic lever in your organisation it has never been more relevant. This paper is a guide to help you evaluate if a middleware solution is suitable for your business, and what to look for if it is.
