Agility, Resilience, Scalability
With our Agile Integration solution, your organization will be more responsive to business changing needs. That is, your team will be able to roll-out new features fast with minimum impact on your existing applications. Has your traditional integration architecture proven to be an obstacle to your business agility? Have your DevOps proven to be complex and less responsive to your needs? If your system integration is slowing down your digital transformation, you should consider transforming your architecture to increase your organizational agility and scalability.
Our Agile Integration solution will modernize your applications’ connectivity. Imagine deploying changes smoothly; decentralized integration with resilience. In other words, deployments won’t impact other applications or your integration platform. Since our Agile Integration solution is built over microservices and cloud-native architecture, it’s well designed for moves to the cloud. In addition, the platform enables you to integrate easily with SaaS applications.

Agile Integration Solution Benefits
Our Agile Integration solution design increases your business agility. For instance, you can deploy new services as well as code changes much more faster than with the traditional architecture.
- Scalability is mission-critical especially with changing workloads. Our solution auto-scales dynamically your services according to your workloads as well as traffic.
Agile Integration Solution Case Study
A leading bank had a high business demand to implement new integration services & APIs. As a matter of fact, it was complicated to build new services on their existing legacy integration platform. Also, the platform had scalability issues; accordingly it’s difficult to cater changing workloads. The bank’s integration platform was in the “no touch” syndrome! Not to mention, the process of development and testing was complicated and time-consuming .
After our assessment, we suggested modernizing and migrating the existing integration platform to a modern Agile Integration platform. Unlike monolith architecture, the new platform is built over microservices, containers and cloud native infrastructure. We went live with the first integration services in six weeks. Aside from the benefits of Agile Integration, the platform has helped the bank reducing the integration cost of the deployed services by 70%.
Key Architecture Drivers & Benefits
- Fine grain deployments: Each integration service is built, deployed and managed separately.
- Auto Scaling: The container orchestration platform auto scales services according to workload without the manual intervention of Ops teams.
- Fast and easy: Building, changing and deploying integration services is no longer complicated. In contrast, it’s a quick and straight-forward process.
- Test Automation: All built integration services are covered with automated tests ensuring high quality. Hence, no more time wasted on manual testing cycles.
- Automated Deployment: All microservices are deployed automatically using DevOps pipelines.
- Asynchronous event based messaging: ensuring eventual consistency, loosely coupled services and failure handling.
Agile Integration Solution Architecture
Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) requires central integration teams and infrastructure to create the service layer. However, you no longer have the centralized bottleneck with agile integration solution. That is, multiple teams work independently and ship new features without affecting other applications and other services.
Unlike ESB, agile integration architecture offers improved agility, scalability, and resilience. Fine-grained integration deployment provides specialized, right-sized containers that fit your needs.
Agile integration solution empowers your infrastructure with lightweight runtime, decoupled services and quick deliveries. All these capabilities are a must for a cloud-native environment.
