SOA Software Showcases API Management at Microsoft Technology Centers

SOA Software, an API Management and SOA Governance leader, today announced that Microsoft Technology Centers (MTCs) worldwide are showcasing SOA Software’s API Management solution. Microsoft customers gain an in-depth understanding of how SOA Software and Microsoft provide a world class API and SOA platform for mobile and cloud through the unique, immersive technology environment of the MTC’s Envisioning Center and technical deep-dives with MTC architects.

The SOA Software solution at the MTC Envisioning Center demonstrates the creation of engaging, productive mobile apps for Microsoft-based backend applications and opens the conversation about the architecture behind the application. The interaction is powered by a seamless combination of SOA Software’s API management solution, APIs hosted on the Microsoft Azure cloud, and a rich backend environment utilizing on-premise Microsoft technology.

“Integrating mobile and cloud apps with on-premise applications is a hot topic for Microsoft customers as they forge ahead to stay competitive in the new digital economy,” said Alistair Farquharson, CTO of SOA Software. “To be successful, Microsoft customers need to externalize services and data hosted on their on-premises Microsoft environments quickly and securely. SOA Software’s API Management solution enables enterprises to leverage their existing on-premises investments as APIs, without the need for expensive integrations or custom development.”

The reference architecture being presented at the MTCs demonstrates Microsoft Azure APIs that directly integrate with internal Microsoft-based systems, including those based on BizTalk Server and Windows Server. The APIs have built-in security, monitoring, and protocol mediation to ensure a full out-of-box experience. The APIs are hosted in a developer portal that makes it easy for API developers and mobile app developers to collaborate and share.

“As enterprises rapidly expand to cloud and mobile, API integration with on-premises systems and applications is becoming an important aspect of both business and IT strategy. The SOA Software API Management solution included in the Envisioning Center demonstration allows me to show exactly how to externalize on-premises systems and applications as API in a secured and governed way that is beneficial to our customers,” said Anna Skobodzinski, WW Microsoft Technology Center Architect.

With over 30 Microsoft Technology Center locations worldwide, Microsoft customers can visit their local MTC to learn more about how SOA Software and Microsoft are working together to offer one of the best API solutions for mobile and cloud workloads. MTC architects are also available to help customers plan rich mobile and API solutions that leverage existing Microsoft environments alongside new Microsoft Azure cloud initiatives.

SOA Software has also been recertified with Gold Independent Software Vendor (ISV)/Software Competency in the Microsoft Partner Network. As the technologies and strategies of the two companies evolve, SOA Software’s API Management and SOA Governance solutions are proving to be an excellent fit for customers vested with Microsoft technology. In particular, SOA Software finds synergy with Microsoft’s cloud/on-premise hybrid strategy, where API management is a critical success factor.

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...

Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...

Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...
