Host access market to generate $492 mln in 2008

Web-to-host revenue will increase from $456.5 mln in 2003 to reach $492 mln in 2008, with $20 mln of this growth coming from Europe. Customer migration to service-oriented architectures (SOAs) will mean growing opportunities in host integration software. IDC believes that by 2008 as much as one-third of the revenue will be from host integration software.
