ZapNote: Fiorano Software
While there has been much attention played to early Web Services entrants and vendors of products that enable Service-Oriented Architectures, there have been few companies to pull together all the requisite components required to meet the needs of enterprise architects looking to build SOAs that deliver on the promise of business agility. Fiorano Software may be one of the first vendors to do so. The company has leveraged their early visibility and dominance in JMS-compliant messaging to deliver a feature-rich, powerful solution for process-driven, Service-Oriented Integration. In addition to a robust messaging platform, the company has recently unveiled an integration solution that combines visual, process-driven development of composite applications with an SOA-based integration core that can meet the needs of enterprise architects searching for an SOA solution.
