Benchmark’s offering on Middleware

Banking sector is striving hard to turn more competitive and offer personalized and user friendly services to their customers by increasing the use of Middleware services.

Middleware provides the technology and building blocks required to align business and IT. At Benchmark, we provide middleware solutions to improve connectivity between applications which can be modeled, defined and modified to suite business processes.

Middleware Overview

The Middleware layer sits between the processing applications and the network and performs three primary functions viz. reformatting, routing and protocol connectivity. Middleware eliminates the need to hard code each of the connections between applications or firms.

To provide true middleware functionality, an application must support the transfer of a message from one protocol to another while routing and formatting. For instance, a middleware application can provide the routing intelligence while using a transport service such as IBM's MQ Series to perform the actual transport, or the transport control processes can be built into the middleware application itself.  And, the distribution process can either be Conversational, Request and Reply, Publish and Subscribe or Store and Forward.

Middleware supports the application, presentation and session layers, and may involve some portion of the transport layer. The application, presentation and session layers can contain:

  • Fourth Generation Languages (4GL)

  • Object Request Brokers (ORB)

  • Transaction Processing (TP) Monitors

  • Remote Procedure Calls (RPC) such as DCE, T-RPC, and Netview

  • Message Systems
