In this week’s episode of CTO Tuesdays Michael Rowley did an excellent job comparing and contrasting scenarios for using ESBs and BPMSs. He provided answers to many popular questions including: If you have a service-oriented BPMS, do you also need an ESB? Are ESBs completely unnecessary? Michael Rowley explored situations where BPMS functionality is all that’s needed and where it was appropriate to use an ESB. So whether you own both of these technologies, just investigating one or the other, or looking to leverage the best attributes of each, then I’d strongly suggest watching this episode.
