For most organizations ‘Application Programming Interfaces’ mean exactly what the name implies: a means in which a functionality of an information system can be exposed to an external set of routines, protocols, system. Modern day APIs have come to be the way they are through a process of technological evolution of the mechanism in which monolithic systems are integrated with one another, pushed by a desire for atomicity, compatibility and agility. A journey that has gone through technologies such as remote procedure calls, web services, REST and its latest incarnation, the microservice.
APIs establish the digital business core. APIs define your business data, processes, and capabilities that can be consumed across internal projects and external communities. In an increasingly connected world, APIs are your core business product; exposing your valuable services across customer, partner, and supplier channels.
The top six microservices patterns (MuleSoft)
Trying to adapt to a microservices architecture needs to be done pragmatically, in a way that makes sense for your organization. You can adopt microservices in a way that meshes with your goals and your own organization. Instead of adopting microservices as a singular approach — which would defy the point of the architecture — we propose considering microservices as a series of overlapping patterns which you can pick and choose to adopt depending on your own situation. There’s no need to adopt every aspect of microservices all at once; it can be adopted in a pragmatic way in a manner that makes sense for you.
API design best practices (MuleSoft)
While it is true, that there are many similarities when designing applications to use lightweight APIs and using more traditional approaches, there are some unique differences. This white paper is intended help developers and application architects understand some of these differences and to help them take advantage of the benefits of these technologies.
Principles of microservice security (MuleSoft)
The goals of information security can be most effectively met through the application of security design principles. In this whitepaper we use security design principles to guide you in the design of the microservices, how they are implemented, and how and where they are deployed. Given that most of the complexity of microservice security exists within the multiplicity of frameworks, protocols, and standards that abound, we avoid prolonged discussion about potential solutions and are very prescriptive in our recommendations.
Accelerate your business with devops (Red Hat)
DevOps represents the opportunity for IT organizations to increase their pace by broadly embrac- ing open source culture to invigorate software development’s role as an engine for increasing the value of business initiatives. DevOps increases the speed and flexibility with which new features and services are delivered. Automation and more agile and iterative development, deployment, updates, and operations also improve quality and security.
Organizations that have successfully laid a foundation for continuous innovation and agility have adopted microservice architectures to respond rapidly to the demands of the business.
DevOps has emerged as a practice that focuses on minimal disruption and maximum reliability; faster time to market is also an artifact of automated release processes that DevOps enables.However, DevOps is a profound shift in IT culture, a shift the demands a rethink on IT processes, technology, and the way people work. Are you ready for it?
The digitalisation will require a decreased ”Time-to-market” for new ideas. IT turnaround on deliveries will have to go from months to days and if IT can’t adopt, business will look for other solutions.
The state of digitalisation, integration, DevOps and automation in the Nordic countries, and a comparison with North America. Differences in focus areas are indentified, for instance the Nordic countries prioritise efficiency and cost reduction where companies and organisations in North America have new business opportunities as their top priority.
Emerging technologies continue to reshape market dynamics, and your business needs agility to remain competitive. New market differentiators set the future digital predators apart across all markets. Customer- obsessed firms exhibit greater business agility in service of customers; they focus on using emerging technology to create new sources of value for their customers; and they are reshaping their operations around customer journeys. To succeed, you must help transform your business to become customer-obsessed and fundamentally digital.
Make the organizations internal and external information available
in order to increase transparence, beneficence and speed of interaction internally, with customers and other organizations. This must happen within an ecosystem that is capable of delivering IT solutions in an ever increasing speed.
Enterprises today are faced with a dramatic challenge; there are billions of people connected to the Internet, they are using millions of applications, and the number of connected devices continues to soar. The real challenge is to ensure all of these are useful and productive for an organization or an individual.
DevOps cuts deep and wide through industries, company sizes, and technology envi- ronments. Nevertheless, there’s a common refrain from IT managers who are leading successful DevOps transformations within their organizations: DevOps is about continual learning and improvement rather than an end state.
API and connectivity will be key factors to drive the digital enterprise. APIs will enable a connected business and generate new business opportunities. APIs will give you access to IoT. Successful development and maintenance of your APIs will create new business opportunities, if you fail you may be left behind. So the question is - are you API ready?
How much do you waste on recreating and searching for existing material? IDC's study in which they investigated the 'knowledge worker shortfall', drew the conclusion that the cost of intellectual revision and difficulties finding knowledge-based resources was 5 000 dollars per year and employee.
We like to challenge the ideas and opinions regarding Open Source Software. Open Source grows quickly and studies like The Future of Open Source 2015 by Black Duck shows that 78% of the respondents believed their companies to run part or all of its operations on Open Source Software. That’s a lot of Open Source.
Why performance matters (Varnish)
Looking at the most successful Internet companies can inspire others.There are two important factors that all of these companies are mindful of and account for in their websites: Internet technologies and business models are constantly changing and need flexible, forward-compatible technologies that are easy to scale and integrate.
Users expect websites and web applications to be fast and reliable, otherwise they will look for other alternatives that are just a mouse-click away.
This white paper will describe innovative digital business goals, outline transformative API oriented IT initiatives, and present API management platform requirement categories. A companion evaluation matrix spreadsheet details hundreds of evaluation criteria that you may use to score vendor platforms.
In this paper we’ll discuss how enterprises can connect legacy systems to the cloud to create a hybrid ecosystem. We’ll learn how solutions like enterprise service buses (ESB), integration platforms as a service (iPaaS), and modern middleware can address both the integration challenges of the present and help IT executives futureproof their companies. The best practices covered in this paper will help businesses with both evaluation and implementation of a successful hybrid integration strategy. Download now
Secrets of a Great API (Mulesoft)
APIs are not new. They’ve served as interfaces that enable applications to communicate with each other for decades. But the role of APIs has changed dramatically in the last few years. Innovative companies have discovered that APIs can be used as an interface to the business, allowing them to monetize digital assets, extend their value proposition with partner-delivered capabilities, and connect to customers across channels and devices.
