Where the Enterprise Integration Software Market is Heading

    Online News published in DMReview.com
January 17, 2002

The enterprise integration software (EIS) market grew 88.4 percent from 1999 to 2000, confirming the importance of integration solutions for enterprises. Although growth rates will slow over the next five years due to economic conditions, IDC says the market will continue to outpace the overall software industry through 2005 with a compound annual growth rate of 43.9 percent.

¡Integrating data and applications is one of the foremost challenges faced by enterprises today and will continue to be in the future. In response to enterprise demand, dozens of vendors are offering integration solutions based on a number of different and sometimes incompatible technologies,¡ says Michele Rosen, research manager for IDC¡s business process automation and deployment service. ¡This variety of choices, coupled with the difficulty of integration, makes it hard for enterprises to select an integration strategy.¡

Despite economic downturn, enterprises will continue to engage in integration projects for the following reasons:

  • Application integration enables organizations to extract more value from complex heterogeneous systems.
  • The need to connect legacy systems with newer applications has not diminished.
  • Employees have grown accustomed to the Web¡s ubiquitous access to information and expect equivalent access from corporate information systems. h Mergers and acquisitions continue to force enterprises to integrate heterogeneous IT systems.
