I recently came across a Gartner report talking about all things to do with ‘App Integration
with Back End Systems’ (in a nutshell… the report goes into detail)

The end result of several pages within this report is a graph (we like graphs 🙂 showing

The Microsoft Technologies that fell under the microscope here are:

  2. Windows Communication Foundation
  3. SQL Service Broker
  4. SQL Integration Services
  5. Team Foundation Suite
  6. Oslo + Azure

The graph looks as follows (snipped from the report):
