Message buses without smarts
NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the radarUnderstand more

In contrast we have seen considerable success with Simple Message Buses where the integration problems are solved at the end points, rather than inside a vendor ESB system. The most well known Simple Message Bus approach is one based on the principles of REST and leveraging the proven scalability of the web. However organizations that have already invested in ESB infrastructure can leverage the useful parts of that infrastructure (reliable messaging etc) while still using a Simple Message Bus approach and performing integrations at the edges of the system.
