Achieving true agility through microservices, containers, and APIs

  • Kimpton Hotel Monaco Seattle

We are entering a new era of microservices and containers which is reshaping how enterprise IT is delivering services with a focus on agility. As a result, developing, integrating, and connecting smaller discrete services has become more complex. Application programming interfaces (APIs) are increasingly being used to unlock core systems, collaborate with partners and reach customers in new ways. A platform architectural approach provides a foundation to deliver innovative solutions across today's hybrid environments.

Join Red Hat and Kovarus for a no-cost, 1-day, hands-on technical workshop. Take a journey to agile integration by taking back more control of your applications. Speed up your software life cycle by adopting microservices in your integration, modularizing solutions with APIs, being cloud ready by containerizing applications, and using DevOps to increase the speed of your development cycle to become truly agile. You'll also participate in some hands-on labs, based on case studies and led by experienced solution architects.

High-level Agenda:

  • Introduction to modern integration architecture
  • How microservices and cloud have transformed integration
  • Integration with Apache Camel & OpenShift demo
  • API-first and container labs featuring Red Hat® JBoss® Fuse, Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, and Red Hat 3scale API Management
