WebSphere® Message Broker Version 6.0 delivers the solution for your current application integration and mediation needs. It can add advanced capabilities to your enterprise service bus (ESB) by extending the integration of your service-oriented architecture (SOA) to encompass your entire enterprise and beyond.

WebSphere Message Broker V6.0 adds real value to the reliable connections between applications and systems as provided by WebSphere MQ and other WebSphere products. It provides the key capabilities your business needs to transform your business data and route it between applications.

By removing the need for your business applications to include routing and transformation logic, you can ensure your applications stay focused and your business stays flexible.

WebSphere Message Broker can act as a message and protocol switch.

This flexible combination of capabilities provides your business with the tools to solve your integration requirements from any starting point: a simple two-application solution or a multi-application, multi-platform design. As your business expands and the integration challenges multiply, WebSphere Message Broker can accommodate the changing needs of your business by:

Growing your infrastructure without increasing the complexity
Protecting your existing and ongoing investments in applications and data structures
