Red Hat Consulting solution: API-centric integration datasheet

INTRODUCTION 

 

As organizations shift from a centralized integration approach to a distributed approach, self-service becomes a priority. Agile teams need the authority and autonomy to seek out, learn about, test, and exploit services developed inside and outside their company, and a strong application programming interface (API) capability delivers this authority and autonomy to those teams. However, APIs alone do not lead to strong business performance. Strong performance relies on a comprehensive integration strategy—one that also incorporates a broader microservices-based integration and messaging strategy and marries these initiatives to a secure, authorized, and action-oriented API management platform. 

RED HAT CONSULTING CAN HELP 

Though integration technology delivers clear benefits to an organization, successful adoption requires effective strategy and planning. Red Hat® Consulting helps organizations efficiently and effectively manage, connect, and scale their business initiatives using Red Hat 3scale API Management, Red Hat® Fuse, and Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. Red Hat Consulting uses a clear methodology that gets you off to a good start—quickly. 

API-centric integration allows organizations to more easily become: 

  • Data-driven: Monetize the insights that are being derived through a single and simple API management platform. 
  • Agile: Whether you are pursuing a public, private, or hybrid cloud strategy, we work with you to adopt and introduce microservices and automation into your business processes. 
  • Efficient: Work with flexible, modular, and lightweight tools to connect your data, leading to more seamless execution.
