By enabling integration of applications, services and platforms, an effective middleware design can help deliver multiple benefits. Along with more efficient, optimized use of available IT resources, middleware can support collaboration, improve system performance and availability and offer flexibility. First, however, you need to develop a strategy and design that define your vision for delivering a middleware infrastructure. Without expert planning and architecture during implementation, a middleware infrastructure can be difficult to manage, expensive to operate and underutilized.
