Learn from this Celent whitepaper how other financial services organizations are unlocking legacy data and quickly extending it to new digital services for cloud, mobile and web. Takeaways include:

  • Aligning APIs and microservices with DevOps and flexible development and deployment methods enables innovation
  • With the rise of complex digital channels, APIs are critical to cost-effective adoption
  • Microservices allow for swift deployment in a highly scalable infrastructure
  • Trading up from SOAs and ESBs to microservices-based API integration decreases technical debt and increase efficiency
  • Success with microservices and API enablers depends on the vendor’s approach to automation, standardization, testing and legacy system connectors
