                          Why past integration efforts failed?

                               Enterprise Application Integration
                                  Very focused on packaged applications
                                  Needed an army of consultants in proprietary technology
                               Custom Application Integration
                                  Normally solved with COMPLEX Middleware
                                  MQSeries, TIBCO, IONA, etc.
                               B2B Integration
                                  EDI still the standard not newer .COM B2B solutions
                               Tactical Integration
                                  The biggest solution – “Bailing Wire and String”
                                  But much simpler and lower cost
                                  File Transfer and Data Sharing

                                 Just as SQL provided a grammar for data
                                 Tried to query a hierachical/object database?
                               Transforms Integration
                                 From custom integration to generalized solution
                                 Web Services is its own Design Center
