Recipe for application integration tools lists a delicate mix of key ingredients

Sponsored by SearchSOA.com

When choosing the best application integration tools, it's all about striking the right balance. Bells and whistles can be alluring, but if those features don't match your company's needs, your software choice can quickly become shelfware.

In making that vital purchasing decision, there's much to consider. App integration tools are divided into two categories, or missions: tools that move work and those that address components. These two characteristics need to be balanced with three important influencers: business agility, componentization and the cloud. The relative importance of these drivers will determine the balance of features you'll need in an app integration tool. They can't be ignored.
