Product Positioning

As part of the WebSphere offering, the WebSphere Business Integration Adapters further extend the already exceptional breadth of IBM's portfolio of e-business infrastructure software. The combined WebSphere Business Integration Adapters, the WebSphere MQ Integrator (WMQI), and IBM CrossWorlds InterChange Server (ICS) solutions help companies maximize the business results from their e-business initiatives and protect their investments in applications and systems.

Connectivity is critical in establishing an enterprise-wide layer of data — extracting information from disparate sources within information systems. The WebSphere Business Integration Adapters allow companies to address seemingly disparate integration efforts within one coherent adapter-based approach. In addition to the prebuilt adapters released, a toolkit can be used in a services engagement to build new adapters required to complete particular customer integration scenarios.

WebSphere Business Integration Adapters are designed to enable information connectivity and process integration.

WebSphere Business Integration Adapters V2 products used with the ICS allow you to model and automate business processes across disparate systems and organizations.

  • Integration based on WebSphere MQ Integrator information connectivity for flexibility in:
    • Connecting and integrating your assets by exploiting data transformation routing and pub-sub capabilities
    • Connecting and integrating your assets within the enterprise and with trading partners for data transformation and routing
  • Integration based on the ICS for process integration enables you to model and automate business processes across disparate systems and organizations

Using the WebSphere Business Integration Adapters, companies can experience significant business benefits, regardless of the application, technology, or database where the information may reside. A company can also easily include external trading partners in its business processes and leverage Internet-based trading networks and exchanges.

A product extension is available as a category 3 support pac (IO01) for WebSphere MQ Integrator Broker V2.1 and WebSphere MQ Integrator V2.1. enabling the import of XML schemas into the Message Repository Manager (MRM) of WebSphere MQ Integrator Broker and WebSphere MQ Integrator V2.1.

In-bound and out-bound adapter message definitions created with the WebSphere Business Integration Adapters tooling can be exported as XML schema files and then imported using the support pac into the MRM.

The advantages are that WebSphere MQ Integrator Broker V2.1 and WebSphere MQ Integrator V2.1 can quickly and easily interact with all existing and future WebSphere Business Integration Adapters, delivering speed to market of new business solutions.

IBM also resells adapters from Peregrine Systems and Sybase, Inc./New Era of Networks and cooperates with a number of other partners to provide adapters for less common requirements.
