Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)

Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)

Beyond ESB Architecture with APIs

Micro-services architecture is the new SOA

Enterprises today are inundated with increasing number of apps that are built as service - applications are built by consuming and producing APIs. APIs enable enterprises to reach new audiences faster.

SOA or a Service Oriented Architecture is a collection of services that communicate with each other addressing the integration needs of corporate information system. Today applications use APIs on the front-end for connecting to clients, backend for integrating with internal systems, and enables other applications to access their internal data and processes on the sides.

APIs and mobile apps help interconnect corporate information systems with mobile devices and external systems from anywhere and everywhere. To make the development process easy and simpler, micro-services architecture are the new SOAs for building scalable and reliable applications using IaaS and PaaS.

Apps speak JSON and not SOAP, and use “APIs” to connect. Therefore you need a different data model that is more flexible with a dynamic data format.

Apigee offers a more flexible and dynamic data format, complementing the capabilities of SOA. Apigee acts as the link between the apps and SOA in the form of an API management layer.

Besides addressing the needs of the API lifecycle, Apigee:

  • Encourages developers to build better apps
  • Enables companies to connect faster with their customers
  • Provides insight into app and API usage

For companies with a corporate ESB or SOA, Apigee offers the necessary control point for channeling API calls into the corporate network, with additional features targeted to the app economy. To learn more, download our eBook, "Beyond ESB Architecture with APIs".
