A tight and uncertain economic climate has prompted firms to seek low-cost yet effective ways to meet their needs for application and data integration.
Open source is on the radar of more and more enterprises
Forrester's research, commissioned on behalf of Red Hat, indicates that a growing number of enterprises across all industries are now considering, piloting, or deploying open source integration solutions. In this webinar, our guest speaker, Forrester Research VP and Principal Analyst John R. Rymer, joins Red Hat Director, Integration and BPM Product Marketing, Pierre Fricke to discuss this Forrester study in depth.
Topics for this session include:
- Why enterprises are considering or currently leveraging open source integration software.
- Which integration scenarios customers favor for open source solutions.
Pierre also covers Red Hat’s view on how lightweight, distributed integration infrastructure must easily work with standards-based, easy-to-use business process management (BPM) tools to enable a truly intelligent, integrated enterprise.
