Today’s software is expected to deliver on a multitude of new and different business objectives—from big data, application programming interface (API), and Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives to omnichannel experiences. Software must work across multiple business functions, business models, engagement channels, and stakeholder ecosystems—and it needs to do it all at ever faster rates of change and innovation.
Red Hat believes a better way to address these new and rapidly multiplying challenges is to integrate different applications and information systems using agile integration strategies.
We define agile integration as an architectural approach for integration technologies and processes—taking advantage of agile methods and flexible microservices architectures. Apps and data across multiple systems and services can be integrated and adapted faster to meet the rapidly changing demands of digital business.
An architectural approach to agile integration has 3 key capabilities:
- Distributed integration—offering the flexibility to adapt at greater speed
- APIs—enabling more efficient connectivity
- Containers—supporting scaling on demand
