Agile integration isn’t just about the team implementing digital transformation strategies. It’s also the technology in place.
With enterprise-level digital transformation taking a two-pronged approach to returns on investment — via an increasing ability to innovate and via growing levels of efficiency — a key mantra for all involved in the process is agility.
But it’s not enough to simply apply agility to the team. It must also be applied to software and the rest of the enterprise’s technology assets overall.
Agile integration gives an organization the means to move with speed, understand quickly and make changes with ease, and ensure as man options are open at each step to make the next change with all available flexibility.
In a recent IDC info brief on agility, they point to four key “cornerstones of agility:”
- Modular development: Microservices
- Deployment portability: Containers
- Standardization of service interfaces: APIs & API management
- Decentralized connectivity: Hybrid Integration
In that infobrief, it’s noted that Red Hat received high recommendation scores from IT and business senior management, as well as from non-management. Red Hat’s OpenShift is a container platform offered across multiple clouds and in a traditional data center, and the firm’s integration portfolio is implemented on top of its container platform, offering the same portability benefits.
