Hubspan a B2B Service Provider Leader, as Cited by Independent Research Firm

In This Evaluation, Hubspan Recognized for Its Community Management, Security & Data Privacy and Strategic Technology Partnerships

SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/29/09 -- Hubspan Inc., a leading provider of business integration solutions, today announced that it has been named a Leader by Forrester Research, Inc. in its just published report, The Forrester Wave(TM): B2B Service Providers, Q4 2009. Hubspan was among the select companies that Forrester invited to participate in its October 2009 Forrester Wave report.

In the evaluation, Forrester reviewed the strengths and weaknesses of Hubspan and 11 other B2B service providers across 85 criteria. Participants were evaluated across multiple areas, including EDI/XML support; integration services, such as enterprise application integration, business process management (BPM) and service oriented architecture (SOA); and hosted managed file transfer.

Hubspan achieved the highest possible score of 5 out of 5 in various subcategories, including community management, security and data privacy, managed services, road map for the future and industry focus. Additionally, Hubspan received a 5.0 score for its strategic technology partnerships, which include IBM, Visa and CNET, to name a few.

According to the report, Hubspan is "well positioned for growth considering its integration solution's recently expanded range." Additionally, the report stated that, "Hubspan scored in the Leader ranks due to its own hosted integration capability and its WebSpan partnership with IBM."

Earlier this year Hubspan launched a joint solution with IBM, called WebSpan. The WebSpan SaaS Integration Solution combines Hubspan's on-demand integration platform with key components of IBM WebSphere integration software. WebSpan enables companies to seamlessly integrate and automate business processes, such as supply chain, demand chain, logistics, financial integration and eCommerce, between customers, partners and vendors. WebSpan is also able to solve more basic integration challenges, such as secure managed file transfer, punchout, EDI, e-invoicing and purchase order exchange.

"We are really fortunate to be working with some of the greatest companies as customers and partners, and we remain focused as always on providing the best possible customer experience," said Trisha Gross, president and CEO at Hubspan. "We believe recognition by Forrester, in addition to our continued growth, strong customer retention rates and an ever-expanding client list, is further evidence that Hubspan is delivering real business value through integration."

Hubspan works with more than 15,000 companies worldwide, from Fortune 500 businesses to smaller enterprises, including Barnes & Noble.com, Invitrogen, Starbucks, Office Depot and the world's largest aviation company.

Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and co...

This workshop led by Sebastian Scheele introduces participants to Kubernetes and Google Container Engine (GKE). Through a combination of instructor-led presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on labs, students learn the key concepts and practices for deploying and maintainin...
Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches.

Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...

He has experience with brick and mortar data centers as well as cloud providers like Digital Ocean, Amazon Web Services, and Rackspace....
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...
