SAP XI Capabilities, while implementing for a Retail Giant in US

SAP XI
I am working on an EAI project for a major Retailer in US. They have the option of going for SAP XI as a middleware. However, while evaluating the middleware options, our architects argue that SAP XI doesn’t have the messaging capabilities. As part of a typical retails solution, the middleware should play an important role in transforming and transporting the data between the corporate systems and store systems. A retailer might have over 1000 stores across the country/countries. The middleware should have the capability in transporting a single message, to all the 1000 stores. In connection to the above business requirement, I have the below questions to be clarified: - Does XI has the queuing capabilities? - How can we measure XI's queuing capabilities in comparison with MQ? - Can it connect to multiple source and target systems of different technologies? - Can XI route a single source message to multiple destinations, say over 1000
