    Hi Raghs,

    first a little Bit history:

    " future for SAP-XI in near future"

    I am sure nobody can give you an answer to this.

    Think about SOA! When was the first apperance of SOA. This is not 4-5 years ago.

    IT world is changing fast!

    But on the other hand: In germany most of the IT budgets are spend in middleware and so in integration. Integration (horizontal and vertikal) will play a huge role in IT landscapes (and so will XI)

    Regards Mario

    HiRaghs,

    as far as i know...

    even though XI has come up early....

    xi has come into picture in dec2004 and became popular in jan2006...

    and about the future...

    its all about SAP capability....if SAP can sustain from rival ORACLE then..it has good future....

    but dont worry..this might not happen...

    Cheers,

    Raghavesh

    Hi Raghs,

    SAP Exchange Infrastructure is crossing into a new horizon. SAP XI is the buzzword in today's integration space. For SAP customers, integration is changing, as NetWeaver is being delivered as the technology platform of today and the future. XI is the core solution which allows a company to integrate many different applications and external trading partners.

    XI is a fundamental enabler of the ESA vision, and the fate of ESA is intimately tied to it. No doubt XI can serve well enough on its own as simple EAI and B2B tools, and this will be sufficient for a large number of companies.

    Needless to debate XI will survive or not. The debate has passed into the question of how fast it will spread inland. It's not always easy to gauge the extent of customer adoption of a new technology or product. But, the velocity of XI adoption is increasing.

    Thanks.
