OpenLegacy, a provider of microservices-based API integration and management for on-premise and legacy applications, has announced the latest version of its software, smoothing the path for enterprises to speed integration of the latest in fintech, insurtech, and other digital, customer- and process-focused technologies.
OpenLegacy’s version 4.2 enables organisations to leverage their existing systems and avoid or completely mitigate the risk of costly legacy migration or modernisation projects. By accelerating the development of microservices through automation and built-in connectors and simultaneously eliminating the expensive reliance on complicated and resource-intensive middleware stacks and architecture (ESB, SOA, MOM), the new version instantly creates standardised integration pathways between existing back-end systems and digital services.
“We enable companies to rethink integration and drive business results. The legacy systems aren’t the problem: it’s the complicated middleware, where layers upon layers in the IT stack add unnecessary complexity and rigidity,” says Zeev Avidan, Chief Product Officer at OpenLegacy. “The new version ‘jumps’ the middleware to simplify and enhance the connections between digital services and back-end systems.”
One major highlight of the new version is support for OpenShift, an enterprise cloud platform based on Kubernetes, commonly used by financial institutions. Now, APIs will deploy seamlessly into the OpenShift/Kubernetes environment.
Additional platform enhancements and developer improvements include:
● API Gateway Capabilities
● Service Discovery
● Fault Tolerance
● Configuration Server
● API Management
● Angular 6 Capabilities
● Temenos T24 Connector
● IMS-DC Connector
● Code-First Enhancement
● JDBC Developer friendly interface for DSL, JPA, and Native SQL queries
In summary, the new import wizards and microservices administration capabilities minimise environment-specific configuration, ensure a complete operation ecosystem, and most importantly, enable our client DevOps teams to get started immediately in an environment that they are familiar with.
“The term ‘legacy’ isn’t about ‘old’ technology,” continues Mr. Avidan. “Legacy is about reliability, and OpenLegacy’s technology ensures organisations can depend on that reliability while still being able adopt the latest digital offerings without compromise and keep up with their customers’ demands.”
