When you look at the Hybrid Integration Platforms (HIP) or iPaaS (Integration Platform as a Sevice) offerings, there are many platform vendors to choose from. Here are three key differentitors where RoboMQ stands out from the competition.
First, RoboMQ is built with open-core technologies supporting multiple brokers- AMQP/RabbitMQ, Kafka, Kinesis, Azure MQ and SQS. It gives you the flexibility to use traditional messaging for value bearing EAI integrations and Kafka or Kinesis for stream oriented event processing. There are interesting use cases for real time analytics using a combination of AMQP and Kafka/Kinesis.
Second, it is fully docker containerized, built for distributed hybrid clouds and on a microservices architecture. While being a late entrant in the market but an early adopter of new technologies, we have a leg up over the competition that is trying to retrofit to the world of containers and hybrid clouds. Docker-based architecture makes RoboMQ natively multi-cloud and best fit for cloud-to-cloud, cloud-to-ground or ground-to-ground integrations.
Third, RoboMQ has pre-built integrations like ADP to AD or Salesforce to ServiceNow that are targeted to specific Line of Business (LoB) users, such as:
- Sales and Marketing
- Food and Beverage Management
- Customer Support
At the same time, the full-featured integration and API platform is built for sophisticated integration specialists, architects, and IT users. This allows for the adoption of a platform that can solve quick business problems as well as be used for complex and strategic enterprise integration needs.
Being open-core and based on standard technologies and containers, RoboMQ avoids lock-in, and offers flexibility for use across the enterprise. There are significant cost savings from operational efficiencies, along with dev-ops advantages through the use of docker.
This is precisely why Gartner has been tracking RoboMQ as an innovator in the iPaaS and Hybrid Integration Platform market. MarketandMarkets has also recognized RoboMQ as an innovator in their Microquadrant for HIP in December, 2017.
