Fiorano Positioned as "Visionary" for the 7th Time in Gartner's Application
Integration Magic Quadrants
PALO ALTO, California, July 18, 2013 Fiorano Software today announced that it has again been positioned by Gartner Inc., a leading industry analyst firm, in the "Visionary" quadrant of the newly-published "Magic Quadrant for On-Premises Application Integration Suites"* which examined 17 vendors among many others whose products provide features addressing the needs of systematic application-to-application, B2B and cloud-based application integration.
This makes Fiorano the only vendor to be named in the 'Visionary' quadrant for 7 times in the last 10 years in Gartner's Magic Quadrant research for application integration spectrum. "We believe this comes as recognition to Fiorano's dedication in providing best-in-class integration solution, which has been in the forefront in maintaining lead with continuous innovation in products and its features," said Atul Saini, CEO of Fiorano Software.
According to Gartner "Many users are looking to support their integration projects with an integrated suite provided by one vendor, thus eliminating the burden to act as a system integrator for application infrastructure. To address this, even market-leading vendors have more work to do to complete the modernization and consolidation of the technologies they offer to support integration projects."
Gartner claims that application integration is defined as giving applications that were designed independently the ability to work together. For Gartner to consider to include in this Magic Quadrant, vendors must have sufficient technology and expertise in their portfolio (regardless of packaging) to be sole application infrastructure providers for all types of systematic application integration projects.
Fiorano products evaluated in the Magic Quadrant include Fiorano SOA Platform®, Fiorano ESB®, Fiorano B2B™ and Fiorano's comprehensive array of adapters. Fiorano ESB, a solid JMS messaging-based ESB within Fiorano SOA is a REST-enabled platform for real-time business built on an Event-Driven Architecture (EDA). Fiorano B2B (available from July 29, 2013) is an enterprise-level B2B gateway for transacting business electronically with customers, trading partners and distributors worldwide.
