OpenLegacy Microservices

Considering the power of microservices? We can help.

Do you have an immediate need to quickly create digital services, but have longer term goals of simplifying your legacy architecture or expanding your Cloud strategy? Interested in future-proofing your investment?

Microservices aren’t new, but are becoming a more critical part of many enterprise cloud and digital strategies. Touted by analysts like Gartner and Forrester and mega-organizations like Amazon, NetFlix, Nike, and eBay, microservices are finally getting much deserved attention.

A microservice is a software component that is decoupled and deployed from your legacy system to run a single business process. It integrates with well-known interfaces and owns its own data storage. A microservices architecture leaves legacy systems intact for as long as you wish, yet offers freedom to use the microservices for rapid innovation and deployment anywhere, especially the Cloud. With OpenLegacy's microservices edition, you get microservice-enabled APIs from legacy systems - in minutes. Learn more about the benefits of micro-services to business and IT.

Eight reasons to choose OpenLegacy for micro-services.

microservices Create an application and an API at once

One tool. One step: Create an application and an API at once. OpenLegacy’s Microservices Edition creates microservices as an API that has the application, rules and security built-in. In one step, you can create a legacy API and expose business processes as microservices. One tool, one step, and a giant leap for your organization.

microservice best practices No modifications to legacy systems

No modifications to legacy systems. OpenLegacy generates standard, lightweight code for microservices, and does not require any modifications to the backend mainframe applications. In this case, we like being called a ‘lightweight.”

micro-services No middle layers

No middle layers to mess with. OpenLegacy’s architecture does not involve any middle layers such as ESBs and MQ, thus shortening the development cycle and leading to significant cost savings.

Avoid decentralized monoliths

Avoid decentralized application monoliths. Our approach is quite different than other typical types of “Integration microservices” offered by other vendors, where you essentially end up with a “decentralized monolith” where microservices are still dependent on each other. Who needs that?

Automatically create microservices

Automatically create microservices, really! Automatically generate a microservice as a self-contained standard Java component. It features a standard interface which deals with a small problem domain and for data storage it has an SDK which refers back to a business process or data on the legacy core applications.

microservices Decouple and standardize

Decouple and standardize. OpenLegacy provides an automated and standard way of functionally-decoupling a monolithic core application by creating a microservices architecture on top of it, consuming it as a data-store but leaving it unchanged. Fewer changes, fewer problems.

microservices architecture Remove the chains and be free at last

Remove the chains and be free at last. With decoupled microservices, you can launch the digital services you need now, while also having the freedom to migrate off your legacy system and/or expand your Cloud strategy in the future. Plus, every new microservice reduces your future total cost of ownership.

microservice best practices stunning performance

Oh, and also stunning performance. Since we avoid complex layers of architecture, our microservices are extremely fast. In fact, one of the largest banks in the world reported that transaction response time improved by 70X.

and still got nowhere

Why not give us a shot -- just one conversation. We are winning the big deals from mammoth sized global companies because we found a better way to do legacy APIs – and also create microservices.

While it is a shame we can’t use his name, a CEO of a very, very large bank recently said to us he had spent “dozens of millions of dollars” working with one of the world’s largest legacy transformation vendors and after a year they still had “a huge backlog of unimplemented services.”

They shifted gears and chose OpenLegacy. Once the discovery process was complete, OpenLegacy delivered 5 APIs as microservices in 3 days. A documented fact.

The decision is: where will you put your money and how big is the truck you need to drive? Do you want to throw good money after bad?
