According to the recent Gartner Magic Quadrant for ON-Premises Integration Suites, application integration patterns were originally applied for internal, application-to-application (A2A) integration and for integrating an organization's applications with that of its trading partners - known as B2B integration. Today, these patterns are applied to a broader array of application integration projects, such as creating new compositions using mobile apps and on-premises back-end services in support of bring-your-own-device initiatives. IBM has a comprehensive product line that addresses the new requirements of application integration projects, including market leading offerings such as WebSphere IBM, IBM Integration Bus, and WebSphere DataPower appliances. The 2013 Gartner Magic Quadrant for On-Premises Integration Suites assesses the leading vendors with products that provide features addressing the needs of systematic application-to-application, B2B and cloud-based application integration.
