Vendor Report: IBM Cast Iron Systems - 70103

Report Details

Application integration is a key requirement to support the business requirements for flexible business processes, spanning a variety of applications. With the cloud and an increasing number of SaaS services, e.g. applications hosted in the cloud, integration moves to a new level of complexity. The integration of cloud and on-premise application services requires new types of integration platforms and new deployment models for these platforms. The platforms should be available as cloud service and for on-premise deployments to support the different scenarios of IT environments from pure-play private IT environments to public cloud-only infrastructures and the transition between different environments.

A large part of the value of application services arises from the integration into cross-application busi-ness processes. Thus, having a well-defined strategy for application integration in on-demand and cloud environments is an essential part of any IT strategy.

Within the market of cloud application integration, IBM Cast Iron Systems is one of the leading-edge vendors. Based on the market strength of IBM, Cast Iron is from the KuppingerCole perspective a vendor which should be part of evaluations in that area. Cast Iron Systems (Cast Iron), founded back in 2001, became an IBM company in 2010. The product portfolio after the acquisition became part of the IBM WebSphere division, no being called WebSphere Cast Iron Cloud integration.

Being now part of IBM, Cast Iron is financially well backed and can rely on the IBM sales organization. This is a fundamental change from the former venture-financed status of the organization. Being an IBM company, Cast Iron is a rock solid vendor in the emerging market of cloud integration. We expect Cast Iron to strongly benefit from the IBM acquisition based on the fact that Cloud Computing is highly strategic for IBM and that IBM is well established in that market.

Within the market of cloud application integration, IBM Cast Iron Systems is one of the leading-edge vendors. Based on the market strength of IBM, Cast Iron is from the KuppingerCole perspective a vendor which should be part of evaluations in that area.
