In a rapidly changing business environment where disruption is the status quo, two principles are critical to maintaining business resiliency and unleashing future innovation: flexibility and real-time data insights. The business world is coping with systemic industry change, new and increasing competitive pressures, and the great resignation. These challenges pressure IT to modernize their infrastructures to meet the digital business demands because operations are exclusively being executed remotely, by software and data rather than manual processes. These simple principals must extend to your application architecture and the integration applications that connect it together.
With today’s modern cloud-based application architectures, there are so many environments to choose from in which to deploy your integration applications: traditional on-premises or across various infrastructure and platforms-as-a-service (IaaS/PaaS) as well as containers-as-a-service (CaaS), serverless environments, and even lightweight edge devices.
With all these deployment options available, it’s vital that your integration solution gives you maximum flexibility to deploy your integration applications to the environments that best meet your business and technical needs. Your solution should also integrate with your preferred DevOps, continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD), and cloud-native ecosystem tools. And more importantly, it needs to enable you to deliver a seamless digital experience— smarter, faster, and better.
To help reduce the time to value by accelerating integration initiatives, TIBCO provides a wide variety of technology flexibility that extends to TIBCO Cloud™ Integration integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS). Not only can you use TIBCO Cloud Integration on your choice of either the AWS or Microsoft Azure cloud platforms, you also have the flexibility to deploy the integration applications you create with it into the environments of your choice such as those mentioned above, as well as:
- Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform
- Cloud Foundry Application Runtime
- VMware Tanzu/Pivotal Application Service
- TIBCO Cloud
To learn more about the flexibility TIBCO Cloud Integration provides, we recommend that you read our recent whitepaper, 10 Reasons Why TIBCO Is the Leader for Connecting Modern Application Architectures and Why that Matters to You.
View and Monitor Your Integration Applications from a Single Location
The flexibility to deploy anywhere—to an Openshift Container Platform, a Cloud Foundry Application Runtime, a VmWare Application Service, or any docker-supported cloud platform—doesn’t deliver much value if you can’t obtain real-time insights into how your integration applications are performing. You need the ability to monitor your integrations across your chosen deployment environments at all times. Since the connections between applications and data on your digital platform underpin your business processes, integration applications that don’t perform as required (or fail to perform altogether) can have a significant negative impact on your business.
TIBCO Cloud Integration hybrid monitoring capabilities enable you to view and monitor integration applications from a single location, regardless of deployment. This powerful packaged integration product addresses common use cases such as:
- Monitoring hybrid agents
- Identifying dormant applications to be scaled down
- Identifying applications with public endpoints for update with TIBCO Cloud™ Mesh
These business use cases create a single monitoring experience for all applications regardless of the deployment environment.
Hybrid monitoring is enabled by the new TIBCO Cloud Integration – Hybrid Agent, a lightweight program that you run locally to facilitate communication between remote apps and TIBCO Cloud Integration. Downloadable within the TIBCO Cloud Integration dashboard, the TIBCO Cloud Integration – Hybrid Agent securely communicates information on registered remote apps, such as monitoring statistics, app status, and other app details. To see this powerful solution in action, you can watch these quick demos:
When you have these insights readily available at your fingertips within a single view, you can be confident that your business stays connected, your digital transformation moves forward, and that you maximize your business value.
