Meeting the middleware needs of more than 35,000 customers, Oracle has announced that Oracle Fusion Middleware was positioned in the Leaders Quadrant of four new Gartner Magic Quadrants tracking the Application Infrastructure Market.
The Magic Quadrants cover: Application Infrastructure; Application Infrastructure for New Service-Oriented Business Application Projects; Application Infrastructure for Composite-Application Projects; and Application Infrastructure for Back-End Application Integration Projects.
In the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure, Gartner states, “Gartner has defined a new market for application infrastructure that reflects the convergence and overlap of many of the products available to support application development, deployment and execution.”
Moreover, “Application Infrastructure includes the majority of runtime middleware, as well as application development and management tools that support the new generation of application styles based on Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), event-driven architecture and business process management (BPM) technology.”
“Oracle Fusion Middleware is a highly-integrated and comprehensive family of products and as a result, it is increasingly serving as the foundation for organizations’ service-oriented integrations,” said Thomas Kurian, Oracle Senior Vice President, Server Technologies.
“We believe that Oracle’s position in the Leaders Quadrant for Gartner’s four Magic Quadrants for Application Infrastructure demonstrates Oracle Fusion Middleware’s ability to provide best-in-class capabilities for a wide range of integration projects while delivering tangible benefits.”
Oracle Positioned in Leaders Quadrant in Application Infrastructure
Gartner states, “Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure, 2Q07, analyzes the total application infrastructure market and the relevance of suppliers whose products might be used in a variety of project types.”
Positioned in the Leaders Quadrant in the Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure, Oracle delivers a comprehensive standards-based portfolio of middleware software that spans enterprise application servers, business integration, business process management, identity management and SOA offerings as well as developer tools.
Oracle Positioned in Leaders Quadrant in New Service-Oriented Business Application Projects
Gartner states that the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure for New Service-Oriented Business Application (SOBA) Projects “evaluates vendors against the relevant subset of all technology attributes of application infrastructure: modelling and design of SOA-style applications and engineering and management of new user-facing software as well as back-end application components (service implementations and interfaces) and flows.”
Located in the Leaders Quadrant of this Magic Quadrant, Oracle delivers with Oracle Fusion Middleware a best-in-class Business Process Execution Language (BPEL) engine, SOA Suite, metadata repository and business process management capabilities that make it easier for organizations to create SOAs.
Oracle Positioned in Leaders Quadrant in Composite-Application Projects
According to Gartner, “Although composite applications are not new, they have gained increased prominence owing to service-oriented architecture (SOA), so a requirement for comprehensive, end-to-end application infrastructure for supporting their implementation is emerging from the user community.”
Positioned in the Leaders Quadrant in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Composite-Application Projects, Oracle provides organizations comprehensive business process management, SOA, integration and development tools that support heterogeneous environments.
Oracle Positioned in Leaders Quadrant in Back-End Application Integration Projects
In the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure for Back-End Application Integration Projects Gartner states, “More germane to the back-end application integration market is that Enterprise service buses (ESBs) provide low-cost, easy-to-use alternatives to integration suites in projects that require interfaces with simple and medium complexity.”
Located in the Leaders Quadrant for this report, the hot-pluggable architecture of Oracle Fusion Middleware’s SOA Suite and ESB, coupled with its expansive portfolio of adapters, enable organizations to more easily integrate their heterogeneous back-end applications.
