This keynote will explore the 3 waves: SOA, API Management, and Microservice Management (based on Istio), explain lessons learnt and give advice on how to succeed.
SOA had great design principles such as service contracts, loose coupling, etc. But SOA came with its own challenges and is not always perceived as a great success. Also, ESB is often used for SOA and represents huge investments that you cannot rip and replace overnight.
API Management opened the door for easy internal and external (mobile/partner/IoT) consumption with self-service. API Management is clearly evolving in large organizations towards self-service, DevOps and multi-cloud.
Microservices management is the new trend. With microservices being distributed in nature, there’s a need to easily establish reliable and secured communications, often through APIs. Both East/West communication (service to service) as well as North/South (Edge) need to be addressed. Istio brings a great foundation layer on top of which you need a management layer and easy integration with API lifecycle management capabilities.
