Mission Critical Messaging Middleware
Market Opportunities, Strategies, and Forecasts, 2005 to 2011

The mission critical messaging market relates to messages as differentiated from packets. Packets have a header that is descriptive of the source and destination.

Messaging is complex to implement and carries a significant services component. The advantage of messaging is that once it is implemented the nodes are resilient and carry the ability to respond to change in a flexible manner.

Vendors are developing and enhancing messaging product sets by adding rules. The market for enterprise application integration, Web services, messaging products and other Internet business-to-business products is evolving to use packaged integration solutions in place of using programmers.

Reliable message-based communication can be a vital element of enterprise mission-critical applications. Reliable messaging includes the ability to ensure that a message exchange has been completed correctly with no messages lost or duplicated.

IBM WebSphere MQ is the industry defacto standard for moving information between applications in a mission critical manner. The product has new life, as RFID and intelligent routers become essential aspects of network infrastructure. The sheer quantities of information created by RFID mean that messages have to be reliable and delivered asynchronously in a manner that prevents duplication.

WebSphere MQ transports quadrillions of transaction messages per day. This provides the base for significant growth. Cross platform, cross operating system secure message transport is always needed in network environments. The issue is to figure out how to expand markets. Forecast analysis indicates mission critical message license markets at $488.9 million in 2004 are anticipated to reach $867.3 million in shipments by 2011.

The messaging is the core of real time computing. The ability to transmit securely over networks depends on messages. Routers have handled information as packets, but this is shifting. Mission critical messaging markets at $2.1 billion in 2004 are anticipated to reach $3.3 billion by 2011.
