Metis is a player in a market full of vendors of data and enterprise application-integration software and services, including Sybase, Tibco, webMethods, and IBM (with its middleware products and recent acquisition of CrossWorlds Software). Metis' advantage is that its protocol-neutral technology requires less custom programming than competing offerings and provides built-in business-process monitoring, says senior VP Mitch Davis. "You get a lot of scalability out of this peer-to-peer technology," he says, noting that the Metis Collaboration Platform is being installed at an undisclosed customer site to link 750 different applications and databases.
