"Modern middleware" refers to open, standards-based application infrastructures that don’t require legacy mainframe links. Oracle is the leader in market share for the foundational components of modern middleware including (but not limited to) application servers, SOA-based integration, service governance, and identity management. While there are many definitions of "middleware" in the industry, some of which include closed mainframe-based systems, Oracle Fusion Middleware provides an open, standards-based platform with best-of-breed components that give users choices.
Once again, oracle takes the top spot (#1 vendor!) in the Application Server category. Part of Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle WebLogic Server is core to Oracle Cloud Application Foundation offering high performance and extreme scalability, dramatically simplifying deployment and management, and accelerating time to market with a modern, lightweight development platform.
Oracle is as a leader in analysts evaluations for application infrastructure. Oracle’s leadership position is based on the assessment of Oracle Fusion Middleware family of products, with the foundational technology being Oracle SOA Suite. Oracle SOA Suite simplifies application integration by providing a unified experience to integrate across cloud, on-premise, and business-to-business. Tight integration between Oracle Fusion Middleware components including Oracle SOA Suite, Oracle WebCenter, Oracle WebLogic Suite and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, as well as with Java and other business applications means an integrated, proven and feature-rich platform for application infrastructure for organizations.
Oracle is also positioned as a leader in analyst evaluations for Identity Management. These reports further confirm that organizations recognize benefits of an integrated approach that Oracle Fusion Middleware technologies offer. Oracle Identity Management offers integrated set of solutions to manage and audit the complete user identity lifecycle and secure the users’ online experience across any device – within or outside the company firewall.
