Today’s data climate is fast-paced and it’s not slowing down. Here’s why your current integration solution is not enough. Brought to you in partnership with Liaison Technologies.

This may not be news to some developers, but it's good for people to know that ESBs are not just for service-oriented architecture.  This article explains what proper ESB solutions and SOA architectures are supposed to imply:

By using the same call to any resulting system, and transforming the data in flight to the intended system, you begin to reduce the complexity of the environment.
