Successful digital execution requires the integration of digital with other digital or non-digital platforms. Excellence in digital integration is one of our key Digital Pillars and increasingly becoming a critical capability. Incessant, a part of NIIT Technologies, is a leader in Pega- and Appian-based integration and business process management.
Digital integration is achieved via middleware or APIs, although the difference is increasingly blurring through both capability and product marketing. NIIT Technologies has deep experience and capability in both these strategies.
One of the most widespread digital to non-digital integrations is integration of digital experiences to legacy application and data. This is a massive endeavor for leading organizations that need to “wrap” their existing applications in APIs to enable their businesses. Typically, digital to legacy integration is achieved via middleware tools such as Mulesoft, Oracle Fusion, or IBM Websphere ESB (a custom web services layer), or a combination of these.
The API Economy
The API economy enables the new emerging world of “plug and play” Digital Operating Models (DOMs), where digital business components are connected by standard APIs. By wrapping legacy systems in APIs and taking appropriate security and performance measures, companies can speed the development of new products and services and allow use of their legacy capabilities inside and outside the company.
