O’REILLY WEBINAR: Why Integration is the Key Component of a Digital Business Platform

O'Reilly Webinar: Why Integration is a Critical Component of a Digital Business Platform


Alice LaPlante, Award-winning Author

Integration technologies have traditionally been used by a narrow audience within an organization to connect applications. As businesses undergo a new wave of digital transformation, integration has evolved to become pervasive― and the critical infrastructure of a digital business platform.

Pervasive integration is used by developers and business users, both within a company's properties and at the "edge" where data is generated by an ecosystem of devices, customers, partners, and others. Establishing a digital business platform requires a mastery of new integration architectures and patterns.

In this webcast you will learn:

  • How pervasive integration spans the entire enterprise
  • Why integration is a key component of a digital business platform
  • New paradigms such as serverless architectures and event-driven microservices
  • Edge-computing and machine learning scenarios
  • Examples of technology that enable digital transformation
