2015? Are you sure that's not 2013?
There's a long list of cloud integration players, starting with Informatica, which has offered Informatica Cloud for years. Dell has Boomi, as noted, and then there's IBM's Cast Iron, Jitterbit, Mulesoft, and SnapLogic. I'm not sure how new the nuances teased out here might me. Will 2015 shape up as some sort of critical growth year? Maybe, but all of these players have been around for quite a while and all have grown quickly along with cloud-based apps and hybrid deployments.

@Doug: Perhaps the key here is not the technology players themselves, but the shift that is taking place within the enterprise. It seems enterprise IT is close to reaching a tipping point in terms of how its role will change, in which case we may see demand increasing for all these players.

Re: 2015? Are you sure that's not 2013?
Doug, thanks for the question. George's main point was not that cloud integration is new to 2015, but that how you define what a true cloud integration platform is will become clearly delineated. We're already seeing a shift—expectations of the user and buyer of modern cloud integration solutions will follow those of the cloud apps they connect, allowing line-of-business users to adopt and manage these platforms. Real-time requirements will begin to outpace traditional batch and scheduled "synchronization" in favor of instant, always-on visibility between systems, all on a single multi-tenant platform (instead of technologies cobbled together to run in the cloud). There are quite a few players in the space but many focus on the developer. It's going to be a fascinating year and we believe a critical growth year for players like Jitterbit.
