"In today's enterprises, most data integration projects never get built. The ROI (Return on Investment) on the small projects is simply too low to justify bringing in expensive middleware. Apatar entered this market as an open source vendor bringing the ease of drag-and-drop data integration, including with EnterpriseDB databases, to the companies that previously found proprietary data integration, ETL, and EAI software tools expensive and difficult to implement."
