App Connect Enterprise (ACE) is an integration solution that allows business information to flow between different applications across multiple hardware and software platforms. It provides the application connectivity that helps to manage connections between various IT assets, which includes legacy applications, Web services, packaged applications, messaging systems, mobile devices, and databases and transform the critical information. It enables the existing application for Web services without rewriting the legacy application, which may be a costly activity.
IBM Cloud Pak are enterprise-ready, containerized software solutions that give clients an open, faster, and more secure way to move core business applications to any cloud like AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and IBM Cloud.
