Contractors and Suppliers

Mediation is a technology which inserts intelligent processing modules, called mediators, between servers and clients to provide value-added processing. A number of contractors have now the capability to build the required application interfaces and implement the architecture. The number of platforms and languages varies, and there is some discussion on style, as preferring fat versus thin mediators. They interact with their customers to acquire domain knowledge. As more implementation enter practice the infrastructure grows, and we expect that mediators can be installed rapidly and be maintained by their owners

We list some of the companies now active in the area, since they are still relatively unknown. There are of course many larger companies that are also building systems for their own use.
