When you look at the Hybrid Integration Platforms (HIP) or iPaaS (Integration Platform as a Sevice) offerings, there are many platform vendors to choose from. Here are three key differentitors where RoboMQ stands out from the competition.
First, RoboMQ is built with open-core technologies supporting multiple brokers- AMQP/RabbitMQ, Kafka, Kinesis, Azure MQ and SQS. It gives you the flexibility to use traditional messaging for value bearing EAI integrations and Kafka or Kinesis for stream oriented event processing. There are interesting use case for real time analytics using a combination of AMQP and Kafka/Kinesis.
Second, it is fully docker containerized (no component here is not docker), built for distributed hybrid clouds and built on microservices architecture. Being a late entrant in the market but the early adopter of new technologies, we have a leg up over the competition that is trynig to retrofit to the world of containers and hybrid clouds. Docker based architecture makes RoboMQ natively multi-cloud and best fit for cloud-to-cloud, cloud-to-ground or ground-to-ground integrations.
Third, RoboMQ has pre-built integrations like ADP to AD or Salesforce and ServiceNow that are targeted to the Line of Business (LoB) users. At the same time full featured integraton and API platform is built for sophisticated integration specialists, architects and IT users. This allows adopting a platform that can solve quick business problems as well as be used for complex and strategic enterprise integration needs.
Being open-core and based on standard technolgies and containers, RoboMQ avoids lock-in as well as offers flexibility for use across the enterprise. There are significant cost savings from operational efficiencies and dev-ops advantages through the use of docker.
