Gartner Magic Quadrant for SOA Infrastructure Projects

In June gartner published it’s Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure for Systematic SOA Infrastructure Projects. Due to the nature of SOA initiatives the selection of technologies and products aimed at supporting the implementation of the SOA infrastructure is done upfront. The resulting platform is shared among SOA applications and other integration initiatives in the enterprise.

To address the need for SOA infrastructure vendors typically have “SOA suites” of “SOA platforms”. These package products like:

All open source vendors are in the visionary quadrant. In some cases their offerings are more modern than the Leaders’ products, since they are hardly burdened with backward compatibility issues. However these vendors are constrained by their small size or sometimes inconsistent execution.

In general the open source platforms are less expensive and easier to implement and deploy. However their offerings are generally less comprehensive than the Leaders’ offerings. If these offerings fit your requirements this could be an easy-to-use/low-cost SOA infrastructure for your organisation. The open source platforms are a strong technology offering.
