Integration in the Cloud

The end of the year gives some time to relax, watch television and to read the many blog posts that have piled up in my reader. A lot of cloud stuff obviously, predictions for next year. James Urquhart mentions 7 businesses to watch out for, and on nr 2 is “Enterprise Integration as a Service”. Couldn’t agree more.

Urquhart refers to Boomi as an example of Integration through the cloud. I remember Boomi as a smaller B2B software vendor from around the period the AS2 protocol took off. Boomi’s cloud offering and pricing remain a bit blurry to me. Should play around with the 30-day trial some day. But not today, Dec. 31st ?

What I don’t understand is that John M Willis picks RabbitMQ as the “Best Cloud Orchestration Tools in the Cloud”. RabbitMQ is a messaging solution based on the AMQP standard protocol. Maybe I’m overlooking something, but I don’t see any AMQP whatsoever in the B2B integration space.
