Just this past week, I heard an outside industry expert say, related to his interaction with clients, “Wherever and whenever you hear the word digital transformation jump into it with A HIP strategy… Inevitably they end up coming to the conclusion, they need a HIP.” Wow, there you go! HIP enables Experiences.
I have been unpacking the “why you need a HIP” first from the perspective of the business challenges leading one here, and this comment fits right in. My last blog post touched on the broad topic of “Digital Transformation.” We now go one level deeper on the business landscape driving a need for a Hybrid Integration Platform.
A real challenge that businesses and IT teams across many organizations face today is establishing an integrated network that matches the flexibility of the on-prem and cloud applications. While you can have several highly functional cloud applications to cover finance, customers, logistics and e-commerce needs respectively, there is no guarantee that these applications will work together. If you can’t share information between these key business areas, what use are these software applications? So, what are the benefits of iPaaS?
What is all the hype about HIP? Hybrid Integration Platform (HIP) is the next chapter in the integration journey that every company is on these days. It will not replace technologies and patterns that have gone before it like MFT, B2B, ESBs, Content Collaboration or APIs. It includes these adding to the mix iPaaS and other platforms for IoT and mobile. Read all about why you need iPaaS here.
“Accelerating the future. Together” may be Axway’s tagline, but as CEO, Patrick Donovan explains, “I’m spending a lot of time thinking about our innovation and how can we innovate faster and lead the market with our offerings?” According to Patrick, it comes down to “two fundamental things.”
Digital Transformation is no longer a side project or something for a small swat team. It is time– it is even past the time–to “burn the boats.” There is no going back. Digital or bust.
To succeed in digital transformation goals, businesses need to integrate more systems, people and things than ever before. Businesses require more touch points and greater intelligence as they generate more integration requests because they use more applications (both in the cloud and on-premises) to interact with the outside world, connect more applications and data sources, and enable more people with information they need. So why do you need iPaaS and how does it fit into this equation?
The Internet of Things (IoT) can do many things. But you may find the need to ask the question, “How do IoT and integration work so well together?”
According to Wikipedia, the Internet of Things (IoT) is the “network of devices such as vehicles, and home appliances that contain electronics, software, actuators and connectivity which allows these things to connect, interact and exchange data.” With so many interesting capabilities, integration plays a key role in bringing this technology to the fold.
Enterprise-level APIs and microservices are maturing – empowering innovation like never before and the creation of nimble apps that can rapidly respond to market changes. And with this growth comes the need to scale as APIs and microservices move from what was once a technology for bleeding edge innovators to the foundation for widespread digital transformation.
Read this instructional infographic to learn about six ways to scale enterprise-level APIs and microservices.

As IT security frictions grow and increased regulation consistently looms on the horizon, businesses need a change. Traditional security practices simply don’t work in today’s rapid development environment. To keep pace with competitors, you have to push out apps faster and more aggressively, while attempting to increase collaboration throughout your entire cycle. This DevOps approach to the software development life cycle (SDLC) has become the answer to the speed and scale needed to succeed in today’s environment. But, what about security?
DevSecOps involves baking security into the DevOps practice. To be clear, DevSecOps isn’t a tool or a strategy or a process; it’s a marriage of all three. Instead of simply handing off security elements to a security team at the end of the dev lifecycle, DevSecOps involves hinging security to the entire app framework by introducing it early, collaboratively, and rapidly.
Why is this important?
DevOps has been a revolution in software development. It brings together software creation, deployment, and management into a single process. Development and operations may become a single team; if not, the teams work very closely together. The benefit is better control over the software release cycle and faster updates.
At the same time, there has been a growing recognition that security needs to be an integral part of the development process. Writing code and then figuring out how to make it secure doesn’t accomplish its goal as well, and it takes longer. The combination of these trends has spawned a new term, DevSecOps.
Cybersecurity often seems like an expensive proposition to many companies. There are annual evaluations to make sure you’re maintaining compliance, expensive programs to put in place, and extensive measures that have to be taken in order to provide true protection to your business. What you should be asking yourself, however, is not what the cost of your protections will be, but rather what a data breach has the potential to cost your business. How much does a data breach really cost?
Open source licensing isn’t very complicated as license agreements go. Even so, some people find it confusing, and businesses need to pay close attention to how the licenses work. Making a mistake in one direction can result in legal action. Erring in the other direction can keep a business from doing useful things which are entirely legal.
Working in the open source industry is a very rewarding career move, especially since the future of it looks bright. With statistics showing more companies are going to rely on open source applications in the future to save money buying commercial products, job openings will become tremendous.
What’s important is to find a strategy to get yourself involved in this rewarding career and community. It’s really more the latter since you’ll be working with fellow developers to create top-notch software. At the same time, you’ll be working together to improve your software and other applications through open-source forums.
SAST (also called “white box testing) is the basic form of security testing for application development. It involved the hard work of examining the actual un-compiled application source code to see if and where security vulnerabilities exist. This form of security testing is from the inside-out. According to Gartner, SAST should be a mandatory requirement for all application development. Gartner notes that 80 percent of attacks are aimed at the application layer. SAST analysis is one of the best ways to ensure application security.
Application security people, like anyone else, can make mistakes. Hasty actions and bad assumptions lead to a less complete discovery of flaws — or to outright disaster. In the worst case, A clumsy attempt to discover security problems can itself cause a breach.
Attention to good practices will mean better security analysis and safer releases. Here are some of the errors that AppSec teams should be aware of and do their best to avoid.
OpEx is the link between your strategy and its execution—in both senses of the word. Assuming your strategy is sound, good OpEx will ensure that a good strategy is executed well and that every function of your organization is striving to achieve sustainable performance and growth. On the other hand, poor OpEx will kill your strategy, regardless of how good it is.
This post highlights three fallacies decision-makers should be aware of when assessing the impact blockchain technologies can have on their business processes. Being aware of these fallacies is crucial to avoid investing in blockchain-based solutions that do not deliver on their promises, but instead bloat your information system landscape, slow down your operations, and ultimately frustrate your customers and staff.
