eQube-MI is a next generation Hybrid integration platform that establishes a Digital Backbone of integrated applications. It is a single platform that efficiently addresses application integration, synchronization, and migration challenges. In addition, eQube-MI based application integration infrastructure can be readily extended for secure, scalable, and robust information collaboration across networks, partners, suppliers, and customers that are geographically dispersed.
eQube-MI represents 'Not only ESB' integration architecture. Based on the use case, eQube-MI can be used to build integration solutions conforming to either ESB type integration or loosely coupled application-to-application type integration or API gateway type integration; hence 'Not only ESB'. eQube-MI can be deployed in multiple ways: cloud only or on-premise only or in a hybrid manner, such as a combination of cloud and on-premise deployment or a combination of cloud to cloud and on-premise deployment. When deployed in any combination involving cloud deployment, eQube-MI acts as an integration platform as a service (iPaaS).
Although the eQube-MI based integration approach is different than traditional integration platform's (ESBs, message brokers, …) approach, due to eQube's open architecture, eQube-MI can readily leverage prior investments made by a customer in other integration platform (s). It can exchange data with any other integration platform as SOAP or JSON or as a Web-service or RESTful service or API. Thus eQube-MI can easily co-exist with other integration platform (s) providing the greatest flexibility.
