Forbes – Adrian Bridgwater – 6/24/17
In truth, no one single body is in control of the way we develop at this level. This is perhaps why IT vendors are now so keen to use the word ‘orchestration’ to explain how new management layers can a) look after the connections and conduits being built and b) make sure those connections adhere to policy controls that have been set in line with agreed business goals.
Working directly in this space is CA Technologies. The artist formerly known as Computer Associates, CA is now extending its API management portfolio with extended capabilities in its CA Live API Creator product which exists to help create, deploy, run, secure and maintain microservices.
“CA provides [a] portfolio of microservices and API management solutions – from design and development to deployment and management – supporting application agility and scale for competitive advantage,” said Rahim Bhatia, general manager, CA Technologies developer products. Bhatia also points to his firm’s Docker container deployment options across many products within the API Management portfolio for end-to-end support in microservices architectures.
