API Management and Microservices
The ability to offer easily accessible, external APIs has become a decisive factor within the logistics industry. Large enterprises are moving away from EDI, opting for improved integration in order to streamline their supply chains as well as be part of a variety of customer and partner ecosystems. What’s more, the continued e-commerce boom makes it appealing to attract these fast-growing digital players by offering better integration and automation.
We have helped several of the industry’s key organisations implement API Management solutions and we are experienced in a number of the leading API Management technologies: Azure API Management, Apigee, Amazon API Gateway, 3scale and Kong.
In order to support the industry’s need for agility and flexible scaling, we often utilise microservice architecture. These are built from stand-alone services that encapsulate the various business functions. Together they form a complete platform where modern technologies are launched step by step as the business grows.
We deliver the microservice architecture based on e.g. Kubernetes and Docker, which are then combined with Kafka or other event-streaming systems — for example, we could use Azure, Google Cloud, AWS and OpenShift as cloud infrastructure.
