ESB works as a glue to bind Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) together, and enables different systems to communicate.
A new report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc. says global ESB market will reach $639.1 million by 2015, thanks to emerging business needs and development of next-generation ESB technologies.
ESB will also ride on the demand for SOA, which will be deployed to power application-integrations over next five years.
ESB solutions have been traditionally expensive and hence, have been deployed mostly by large-scale organizations. However, with the entry of new ESB vendors and open source products, ESB prices have come down making them accessible for even mid-size companies.
The report mentions following companies as key players in the market: Fiorano Software Inc, FusionWare Corporation, International Business Machines Corporation, MuleSoft Inc., Oracle Corporation, Progress Software Corporation, Red Hat Inc., SOA Software Inc, Software AG, TIBCO Software Inc, Workday Inc, and WSO2 among others.
