Unleashing your digital potential with enterprise cloud integration

As your company accelerates digital transformation, it will inevitably need to run a mixture of private cloud, public cloud, and on-premises applications and services to address its business needs. To succeed with a hybrid, multi-cloud environment, your business will need to invest in three key capabilities: a modern digitalisation platform, cloud integration solutions, and cloud identity & access management.

These capabilities will enable your business to optimise performance across an IT estate that leverages on-premises, private cloud, and public cloud solutions and infrastructure. They simplify and accelerate software development, opening up opportunities for your business to rapidly innovate and deliver new software releases and features.

Let’s zoom in on the importance of enterprise cloud integration. Today’s smarter cloud integration technologies connect multiple cloud environments, applications, and systems for seamless interchange of data and processes. These integration platforms offer a central library of application programming interfaces (APIs).

API-first—the smarter approach

Your developers can use these APIs to streamline integrations between systems in your environment—for example, allowing an e-commerce engine to talk to the customer relationship management, inventory management, and logistics systems. This enables a seamless experience where a customer can see if an item is in stock, place an order, and track delivery.

Such a solution will also incorporate data transport mechanisms to support bulk ingestion of data, as well as a distributed enterprise service bus to support the integration of high-volume transactions. This bridges the gap between your on-premises systems and all the things you want to do in the cloud. This smarter approach will simplify cloud-native software development and accelerate time to value.

Cloud-native application development enables an enterprise to accelerate app development and continuously innovate according to end-user feedback. A modern cloud integration platform overcomes the limitations of older approaches to connecting and integrating apps, such as the centralised enterprise service bus. It offers superior scalability, efficiency, and reusability.

Accelerate and simplify development

An API-first approach is a viable road to the future, offering a way to simplify how the organisation connects new apps to existing data and services. APIs offer a more seamless way to connect data, applications, and devices across the IT footprint, so all systems can better communicate and work together.

APIs are a key feature of agile integration, along with a distributed enterprise service bus for high-volume high volume transaction integration and data transport mechanisms to support bulk ingestion of data. They connect products and services without having to know how they're implemented, helping to massively simplify integration.

Such a platform helps you to redesign and modernise apps as you migrate to the cloud according to your strategic roadmap. It also enables you to deploy new services and apps or make changes in an agile, efficient manner within the context of a hybrid IT environment.

At 1Nebula, we help enterprise customers to simplify application delivery through agile cloud development. As a Microsoft Gold Partner, we leverage cloud components to develop and deploy highly scalable and secure products. In addition to providing cloud enablement tools, we have developed a methodology we use to evaluate and score cloud integration vendors.
