Event Streaming with Apache Kafka and API Management / API Gateway solutions (Apigee, Mulesoft Anypoint, Kong, TIBCO Mashery,…
Read why enterprises leverage the open source ecosystem of Apache Kafka for successful integration of different legacy and modern applications instead of ESB, ETL or MQ.
I want to share my slide deck and video recordings from the talk “10 Lessons Learned from Building Cloud Native Middleware Microservices” at O’Reilly Software Architecture April 2017 in New York, USA in April 2017.
Case Study: How to Move from a (Middleware) Monolith to Cloud, Containers and Microservices leveraging Docker, Cloud Foundry, Kubernetes, Consul, Hystrix, API Management, and others cool things.
Challenges, requirements and best practices for creating a good Microservicess architecture, and what role an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) plays in this game.
Open API represent the leading edge of a new business model, providing innovative ways for companies to expand brand value and routes to market, and create new value chains for intellectual property. In the past, SOA strategies mostly targeted internal users. Open APIs target mostly external partners. This session introduces the concepts of Open API, its challenges and opportunities. API Management will become important in many areas, no matter if business-to-business (B2B) or business-to-customer (B2C) communication. Several real world use cases will discuss how to gain leverage due to API Management. The end of the session shows and compares API management products from different vendors such as TIBCO API Exchange, IBM, Apigee, 3scale, WSO2, MuleSoft, Mashery, Layer 7, Vordel
These slides show and compare the three alternative integration frameworks Apache Camel (JBoss, Talend), Spring Integration (Pivotal) and Mule ESB, and discuss their pros and cons. Besides, a recommendation will be given when to use a more powerful Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) instead of one of these frameworks.
I have spotted a really great article about comparing prices of open source and proprietary products: “What is the TCO difference between WebSphere and JBoss?”. The interesting aspect is, that this article is written by an IBM-biased company (Prolifics). Usually, only open source vendors write such comparisons. I really like this article, seriously! It is good to see comparisons not only by open source vendors, but also by vendors such as IBM (in this case, Prolifics cannot be considered unbiased, it is an IBM consulting company – but that is fine). I just want to give my two cents to this article in the following…
