Developers today are looking to many different toolsets and architectural patterns to build and deploy applications in a number of innovative ways. Edge devices are being utilized for IoT and machine learning functions, in addition to new deployment methods like Function as a service (FaaS), rising up in the form of serverless computing and event-driven microservices.
Oftentimes, developers are turning to a variety of companies to find the tools they need to meet their needs. TIBCO is ready to be a resource for developers in the enterprise software space, moving away from monolithic app servers, heavy ESBs, and data centers. Here are a few reasons why more and more developers are turning to TIBCO for modern application development.
Developers are leveraging open core products
Developers utilize open source software to speed up delivery and leverage industry best practices. Open core projects like Project Flogo® and Project Mashling™ are offered under a BSD-style license imposing minimal restrictions on their use for anything you build, fostering creativity and an endless number of possibilities.
New methods of deployment align with the developer community
Flogo and Mashling can aid developers in adapting to new methods of development and deployment. Function as a Service provides developers with the capability to deploy individual pieces of business logic (functions) without worrying about the underlying infrastructure. The lightweight capabilities of Flogo natively support FaaS based deployment saving users time and taking control of the cost of running their functions and services. Additionally, as developers (and architects) started to explore ways to make their development easier to scale, they have started to use event-driven architecture to develop smaller services (microservices).
Adaptive to new technologies: Machine Learning & Edge Devices
Project Flogo gives you the ability to run machine learning models (e.g. TensorFlow and TIBCO Statistica) against real-time data. Developers are also leveraging edge computing and IoT deployments. IoT devices have limited resources, so developers are turning to lightweight applications that can run natively on these devices. Flogo provides an ultralightweight framework for developers to create microservices, which can be run on the smallest devices with the highest efficiency.
The microservices pattern is about creating services that are self-contained, used for a single purpose, and have a bounded context. Developers have a lot of choices when it comes to building and deploying microservices, including TIBCO Cloud Integration. With the intuitive UI of TIBCO Cloud Integration, you can build new services or configure complex integration patterns and easily run them in the cloud or deploy to the platform or container of your choice.
TIBCO’s developer-focused technologies can enable you to take advantage of all the latest innovations around application development and integration for any type of deployment. With TIBCO behind you, you can base your choices on what works best to solve your business’s problems.
