Fiorano Positioned in Visionary Quadrant for Application Infrastructure for Systematic Application Integration Projects

Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) June 28, 2012

Fiorano Software (, a leader in enterprise integration and messaging middleware solutions, announced today that it has been positioned in the Visionary Quadrant in Gartner, Inc.’s recently released research paper “Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure for Systematic Application Integration Projects.”

The report examines vendors whose products address the needs of systematic application-to-application (A2A), business-to-business (B2B) and cloud-to-on-premises application integration. Fioranos SOA Platform, Enterprise Service Bus (Fiorano ESB), Cloud platform (Fiorano Cloud), messaging software (FioranoMQ) and related application adapters were evaluated in this Magic Quadrant.

The exit of several vendors from the middleware business leaves Fiorano as the only vendor that has been featured in the Visionary Quadrant in this category for 9 straight years now; this makes it one of the most consistent innovators in the business.

Fiorano is the only vendor with both, application and distributed system integration capabilities and a unified approach toward hybrid deployments of cloud and on-premise applications, said Atul Saini, CEO of Fiorano Software. Fiorano is also the only vendor with a cohesive product set in contrast to the mega-vendors who have challenges with product rationalization and incompatibility issues with myriad products that they have acquired through take-overs. We are committed to maintaining our lead with continuous innovation in our products and their features, he added.

Explaining technology shifts, the Gartner report states: Historically, B2B and A2A integrations have been considered separate practices conducted by separate groups. However, at the technology level, B2B integration technology has much in common with middleware for A2A integration, including communication, transformation, adapters and orchestration features. For this reason, organizations are moving toward establishing best practices that create a unified approach for A2A and B2B integration.

The Quadrant shortlisted 27 vendors last year but has only 17 vendors this year, with a dozen vendors dropped for reasons such as lack of geographic coverage, lack of market penetration or becoming the subject of a merger or acquisition.

MuleSoft Selects CloverETL to Enrich the Data Integration Capabilities of the Mule ESB Enterprise and CloudHub Platforms

Arlington, VA (PRWEB) July 19, 2012

Javlin today announced that CloverETL data integration software will play an important role in MuleSofts Mule ESB and CloudHub offerings platforms that act as transit systems for carrying data between applications, simplifying the process of maintaining and growing application integrations.

As part of the partnership, CloverETLs Designer and Engine support Mule Studio, MuleSofts Eclipse-based graphical designer that drives Mule ESB and CloudHub. With Mule Studios visually intuitive DataMapper, users can easily interact with complex data sets and formats to create maps and transformations that support their integration use cases. Integrated into Mule Studio, the visual part of MuleSofts DataMapper builds upon a variety of CloverETL Designer APIs to provide integration developers with intuitive screens for development and design-time validation of data payload mapping.

The payload mapping is then translated into the CloverETL data transformation format utilized by the CloverETL Engine, which performs the actual payload transformation based on user-defined mapping. The CloverETL Engine has also been fully integrated into the Mule ESB Enterprise and CloudHub deployment platform environments to provide a seamless experience and support in production.

Business analysts looking for the value in their data can easily work with the common data integration functions such as:

Communication with databases, accessing message queues, exchanging data with packaged or custom applications (including legacy apps)
Working with data in different modern formats (XML, JSON), or legacy (CSV, fixed-length or Cobol)
Direct integration with data structures of Java programming language (POJOs, hash-maps or JavaBeans)

Built into Mule Studio, CloverETL helps drive data mapping with the easy-to-use, analyst-friendly GUI. As an Eclipse-based developer tool, Mule Studio allows users to graphically create and test Mule ESB flows. With the help of Clover, the need for direct programming knowledge is significantly reduced, said Ken Yagen, VP of Products for MuleSoft.

Info-Tech Research Group Urges Businesses to Stop Coding Their Own Demise and Adopt Data Integration Tools

London, Ontario (PRWEB) July 03, 2012

Data Integration tools are no longer a nice to have but a need to have according to Info-Tech Research Group. The research firm recently published a Data Integration Vendor Landscape where they found point-to-point integration stifles growth as architectures are unable to keep up with business growth and represent weak links in mission critical integration scenarios. Informatica, IBM and SAP all ranked as Champions in a market where a hand-coding monopoly will be a business biggest hurdle to overcome.

Developer resistance and prevalent in-house hand-coding continue to be data integrations greatest competitor even though there are a number of viable vendor tool solutions in the marketplace, said Stewart Bond, Senior Research Analyst for Info-Tech Research Group. Since most companies are already integrating multiple data sources, these tools can make those integrations easier, faster to build and more robust compared to hand coding alternatives. Beyond integration, DI tools also enable companies to effectively manage multiple data sources.

Informatica, ranked as a Champion in the report, provides a unified platform that is a one-stop shop for data integration. Achieving the highest advanced feature, product and vendor scores, Informaticas unified data integration platform is designed to access, integrate, and manage any type of data on any processing platform.

Cambridge Semantics Unveils Anzo Express Starter to Address Excel Integration, Collaboration and Reporting Challenges

San Francisco, CA and Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 04, 2012

At the 2012 Semantic Technology & Business Conference today, Cambridge Semantics announced a new, free downloadable version of the companys Anzo Express software. Anzo Express allows business users to link together data stored in multiple spreadsheets enabling real-time collaboration right in Microsoft Excel. Anzo Express also provides a dynamic, business-friendly web-based analytic dashboard for real-time reporting on data in spreadsheets and relational databases. Companies including Merck, Johnson & Johnson, Staples and GroupM, are already using Anzo to solve their key data management challenges.

Cambridge Semantics will be presenting Anzo Express with a live demo at SemTech in San Francisco on June 5th. Visit for the complete agenda.

Organizations are facing increasingly dynamic environments where business requirements change almost daily. Traditional databases lack the ability to quickly adapt to change and have driven business users to rely on Excel spreadsheets for key business operationsfrom supply chain management to compliance information management, competitive intelligence to budget reconciliation. IT departments have tried to replace spreadsheets with more governable services but have failed to do so because traditional technologies are not as flexible as spreadsheets.

Semantic Web technologies are significantly more flexible than traditional databases and can better adapt to changing requirements, making them uniquely suited to solving the spreadsheet data integration problem. With Anzo Express ordinary users can easily collaborate and report on data stored in Excel and relational databases, transforming disparate spreadsheet data into powerful business insights.

Semantic Web technologies have been gaining momentum as businesses require greater flexibility. However there is still a steep and tedious learning curve for everyday users who need powerful tools and scalable applications, said Lee Feigenbaum, co-founder of Cambridge Semantics. With Anzo Express businesses can get the best of both worlds. End users can continue to use Excel, only with significantly greater ability to share data between spreadsheets and departments, while IT, for the first time, gets the ability to govern, track, and report on data within those spreadsheets.

As the entry-level version of the full Anzo Enterprise software suite, Anzo Express focuses on addressing collaborative spreadsheet integration and web dashboards. This is the first time Anzo Express has been available as a free download, enabling much greater adoption for business users. From compliance reporting to supplier tracking, Anzo Express solves the Excel reporting and integration challenges that every organization faces.

In addition to showcasing Anzo Express Starter at the Semantic Technology & Business Conference, Cambridge Semantics customer Staples will be presenting a use case of how the company uses Anzo to manage their complex enterprise service bus (ESB). Attendees can also visit the Cambridge Semantics booth (#101) and learn more about recent offerings such as Anzo Unstructured.
