Integration is the discipline which is required by every solutions architect who designs and builds enterprise software systems. It is the glue between heterogenous systems which are brought into the enterprise system to cater new consumer demands. Almost 50% of the implementations done within an enterprise are related to some sort of integration. It is quite evident that integration is not a one-off task. It is an adaptive and iterative task which needs to keep up with the pace of innovation. Microservices Architecture (MSA) and cloud-native architectures have made integration more and more complex and the standard integration technologies and methodologies we used in the past are no longer capable of handling these complexities. In this talk I will be talking about how we can do integraton in an adaptive and iterative manner within a fast moving enterprise.

Chanaka will discuss the following during this session:

  • Conventional centralized integration
  • Role of integration in microservices
  • Microservice integration patterns
  • Hybrid architecture with centralized vs. decentralized integration for brownfield enterprises
