Organizations pursuing digital transformation must embrace new ways to use and deploy integration technologies, so they can move quickly in a manner appropriate to the goals of multicloud, decentralization and microservices. Integration must transform to allow organizations to move boldly in building new customer experiences, rather than forcing models for architecture and development that pull away from maximizing the organization’s productivity.
Many organizations have started embracing agile application techniques such as microservices architecture and are now starting to see the benefits of that shift. The approach described in this paper complements and accelerates agile development practices. We look to bring the same concepts to bear on an enterprise’s API strategy, their ESB infrastructure, and their approaches to asynchronous communication over messages and events. This enables them to achieve more effective ways to manage and operate their integration services in their private or public cloud.
This white paper is derived from an ebook that explores the merits of what we refer to as an agile integration methodology - a container-based, decentralized and microservices-aligned approach for integration solutions that meets the demands of agility, scalability and resilience required by digital transformation.
