CA is steering its API Management platform to provide enterprises with a modern application architecture to potentially improve business agility and enable rapid application integration and deployment. Monolithic applications can prove difficult to scale and slow the development process. By putting an emphasis on microservices and a more expansive view of the API lifecycle, the company is facilitating the deconstruction of monolithic apps to provide business value to enterprises in the form of agility and flexibility without having to sacrifice utility or security. Microservices may provide a path forward, but for now at least API front ends are going to be a foundational element of enabling microservices-based programs – thus, CA’s APIM platform provides a natural segue. Aside from its utility to customers, the CA Microgateway serves as a means to further tie together several of the vendor’s products while also offering new value for existing users.
