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.

Microservices Articles
With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
At its core DevOps is all about collaboration. The lines of communication must be opened and it takes some effort to ensure that they stay that way. It’s easy to pay lip service to trends and talk about implementing new methodologies, but without action, real benefits cannot be realized. Success requires planning, advocates empowered to effect change, and, of course, the right tooling. To bring about a cultural shift it’s important to share challenges. In simple terms, ensuring that everyone k...
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...
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...
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. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
Kubernetes is a new and revolutionary open-sourced system for managing containers across multiple hosts in a cluster. Ansible is a simple IT automation tool for just about any requirement for reproducible environments. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Patrick Galbraith, a principal engineer at HPE, will discuss how to build a fully functional Kubernetes cluster on a number of virtual machines or bare-metal hosts. Also included will be a brief demonstration of running a Galer...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Mike Johnston, an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io, will discuss how to use Kubernetes to setup a SaaS infrastructure for your business. Mike Johnston is an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io with over 12 years of experience designing, deploying, and maintaining server and workstation infrastructure at all scales. He has experience with brick and mortar data centers as well as cloud providers like Digital Ocean, Amazon Web Services, and Rackspace....
"There is a huge interest in Kubernetes. People are now starting to use Kubernetes and implement it," stated Sebastian Scheele, co-founder of Loodse, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
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...
