Well... well... well!
Maybe EAI is about to get exciting again! I do hope so. Consolidation in the integration space has been long overdue.
A market that was once the preserve of niche players (and IBM, of course) now has heavyweights such as Microsoft and SAP playing... it was only a matter of time before the shakeout began in earnest.
The question now is: will they disappear without a trace (whatever happened to New Era of Networks?) or will something truly interesting emerge?
Bring it on!
