How do you modernize your existing infrastructure when critical systems are inflexible packaged apps that don’t play well with others?
The race to be more modern, more digital, and provide the best, most dynamic customer experience is well underway. And, as more and more new cloud systems are put in use, your IT resources become even more strained, extending the time it takes to innovate and achieve your business goals.
So how can you both modernize and become more agile at the same time? The answer lies in APIs and microservices.
APIs act as the catalyst to continuous modernization and innovation. They connect data from multiple systems and places such as cloud data, IoT sensor data, mobile app data, and back-end system data, and make it possible for all of this data to be analyzed and used in a way that has value. This is the key to becoming digitally fit.
Modernize to maximize
APIs are the critical piece of the puzzle that make many other IT changes possible - and when used with microservices – they maximize the value of successful initiatives and allow you to achieve more agility.
Unlike traditional monolithic systems, in a microservices software development architecture, applications are easier to build and maintain because they are structured in a modular way. A single application is built as a suite of small services, each running its own process and thus independently deployable. This makes them much easier to expand and scale. Microservices work seamlessly together and communicate through APIs.
Imagine the possibilities for digitally transforming your business when you have a modern system in place. New business models, innovative product offerings, and the ability to glean valuable insights from your data become a reality.
