Gartner Says Integration Software Market Revenue Will Reach $27 Billion in 2017 (without Blockchain Integration)
We at unibright.io provide the first unified blockchain based framework for business integration. Part of our framework is the Uniyte Connector — the Unibright Connector integrates existing IT-landscapes and separate IT-systems into the blockchain world. The connector encapsulates the blockchain communication in regard to Unibright conformant smart contracts in different blockchains and enables On- and Off-blockchain integration.
Gartner predicts a market revenue of $27 Billion in 2017 as quoted in the following without the upcoming demands in terms of blockchain based business integration.
So we have to add the blockchain world and its portential to that huge markt of $27 Billion to see the market potential of frameworks like unibright.io.
Thats huge and we are striving to be a significant player on that market!
On https://www.gartner.com/newsroom/id/3642017 Gartner states:
The worldwide application integration and middleware (AIM) software market continues to grow faster than the overall infrastructure software market, with revenue on pace to surpass $27 billion in 2017, an increase of 7 percent from 2016, according to Gartner, Inc (see Table 1).
“Established approaches to application infrastructure are too rigid, closed and cumbersome to support many digital business requirements,” said Fabrizio Biscotti, research vice president at Gartner.
“Growth in mobile, big data, analytics, in-memory computing, cloud and Internet of Things initiatives is associated with digital business and requires application and integration professionals to invest in new AIM technologies,” said Mr. Biscotti. “This in turn drives fresh integration approaches with new AIM technologies at their core, such as application programmable interface management and integration platform as a service.”
Three main requirements are central to this shift. Firstly, digital organizations need an open, flexible and lightweight model that enables simpler and faster configuration, as well as deployment of both cloud and on-premises resources. In addition, they need platforms that support diverse combinations of resources, applications, data, processes and things from within and outside the organization. Finally, they need self-service middleware that can increase and decrease in scale rapidly.
“Cloud application infrastructure offerings are still maturing, yet already meet market demands for greater agility, scalability, productivity and efficiency better than their on-premises alternatives,” said Mr Biscotti. “The older technology, however, often remains more suitable for the most demanding scenarios.”
For us at Unibright, business integration is the vital part of our daily work for more than 15 years. For our customers we have been projecting and developing tailor-made solutions beginning in the pre internet era up to current cloud architectures.
It has been more than 2 years for unibright.io digging deep into the blockchain world and establishing a framwork for blockchain based business integration.
We are so keen on this logical, next-step for our solutions.
