Disclaimers and Other Sermons
• I am NOT a public cloud adoption cheerleader
• Public cloud adoption is a tool like all other tools and its benefits
need to stand on their own just like other tools
• I AM a cloud technology adoption cheerleader. That is, for
organizations that have legacy applications, I advocate considering
•
•
•
•
•
Public cloud adoption
Internal cloud adoption
Use of web and mobile applications
Inclusion of outside web services in internal applications
Development tools that enable legacy, mobile, web development for cloud
and internal use
• Increasing use of APIs for application access
• Legacy system integration using cloud technologies
• Minimally Invasive Legacy Modernization
Key Messages
Consumerization of APIs: Scaling integrations
“A new generation of tools based on RESTful APIs will help
enterprise IT embrace the opportunities and challenges from
social, mobile, analytics, and cloud computing (SMAC) and
consumerization of IT (CoIT).”
By Carol Hildebrand, Patrick Shankland, and Vinod Baya
http://www.pwc.com/us/en/technology-forecast/2012/issue2/features/featureconsumerization-apis.jhtml
Web Services used in an API-centric approach to accessing
existing (legacy), outside (cloud, customers, vendors) will
accommodate today’s needs and future needs for integrating
disparate applications.
Modernize As Quickly As Possible with as Little Effort and
Expense as Possible – API use is the key
Session Approach
1. Provide a minimal introduction to key concepts such as
SOA, RESTful APIs, ESBs, etc.
2. Briefly describe common approaches for integrating
disparate applications that include legacy applications
3. Briefly describe legacy application special challenges
4. Demonstrate how APIs can be used to integrate legacy
applications along with other types of applications
5. Briefly describe and demonstrate how modern development
tools can be used with all types of applications
6. Provide information on how attendees can go on for further
study of these subject areas

The Service Oriented Enterprise operates using;
• Software and data as services
• Hardware as virtualized resources
• Autonomic data sources
• Occasionally connected usage
• Services that cross firewalls
• But still utilizes existing legacy systems

Some of the current challenges
Need for more flexibility
• Multichannel strategies
• Time to market
• Mergers and de-mergers
Unsupportable Dependancies
• Increasing amount of ‘spaghetti’ linkages
• Too much of the budget spent on maintainance
• Difficulties in staffing for support of legacy systems
Continued cost reduction plus Compliance support
Integration of Web-based channels
• Enterprise portals are no longer stand-alone
• Connection to legacy systems is difficult
• Online systems ‘crash’ with external visibility
Cross-functional processes
• ERP systems have created new ‘silos’
• Need for adaptative processes
• Increasing use of external ‘partners’

Three Selected Approaches and Web 2.0
Development
Selected Modernization
Approaches
• Web Services
• API Focused
• Services for Legacy and New
• Data Centric Migration
• Migrate to a suitable database
• Enable RAD for Legacy and
New
• Legacy Systems in the Cloud
(IBM PureSystems)
•
(Web 2.0 – HTML 5, css3 and
JavaScript -New Development
for web and mobile using)
Why
•
•
•
•
Quick wins
Short lead time
Least Expensive
Can do other
approaches later
• Most important that all
applications be available
through APIs
• Minimal Testing
ESB as the Integration Bus

Summary and Conclusions

IT is in a constant state of evolution

Web, UI, social media technologies have made it possible to use a combination of services to
interact with users, vendors and customers

Cloud architecture gives management the flexibility to choose which services we use.

Defacto standards are emerging HTML 5, CSS3, JavaScript, JSON, etc.

Web services and API orientation help insure that applications will interface with others for a
long time



It makes sense to use an API focus
The API focus allows the use of Legacy applications and newer applications on the same UI.
Legacy applications can be dealt with in stages with Web Services being the first thing
addressed
