The products highlight the importance of multi-cloud integration as companies manage multiple clouds, integration platforms, and patterns. It emphasizes the need for innovative solutions and agile strategies to navigate the complexities of multi-cloud connectivity. Integration 11

What is Integration 11?

webMethods Integration 11, a core component of Software AG’s Super iPaaS, is designed to address the significant challenges of managing integrations in today’s multi-cloud world. It introduces a new way of working with a multi-persona perspective, allowing developers and business technologists to work together effectively. The platform eliminates the need for developers to be locked into a specific environment or tool while enabling business technologists to leverage AI for integration tasks.
One of the critical features of Integration 11 is its ability to cater to the preferences of both developers and business users. It allows teams to choose where to build and deploy integrations, improving productivity and reducing development and maintenance costs. The platform enables developers to work disconnectedly using code, while business integrators can use prebuilt recipes in the cloud or natural language to build AI-powered integrations. This flexibility empowers teams to work together seamlessly and deliver integrations continuously without interruptions.

How to Create Integrations with webMethods Integration 11?

Creating integrations with webMethods Integration 11 is indeed straightforward, especially for business technologists who may not have a deep technical background. Here’s how you could create an integration for notifying the team via email whenever a new note is created, using either prebuilt integration recipes or natural language prompts:

Using Prebuilt Integration Recipes:

  • Log in to your Integration 11 account.
  • Navigate to the Integration Recipes section and search for a recipe that fits your needs, such as “Notify team via email for new note.”
  • Select the recipe and follow the guided steps to configure it, such as specifying the trigger (new note created) and the action (send email).
  • Customize the email notification settings, such as the recipients and message content, as needed.
  • Save and activate the integration.

Using Natural Language Prompts:

  • Log in to your Integration 11 account.
  • Navigate to the Integration Builder and start a new integration.
  • Use the natural language interface to describe the integration you want to create, such as “When a new note is created, send an email to the team.”
  • The AI capabilities of webMethods Integration 11 will interpret your request and suggest a workflow for the integration.
  • Review and customize the suggested workflow, if necessary, and save the integration.
  • Activate the integration to start the automated notification process.

In both cases, Integration 11 makes it easy for business technologists to create and manage integrations without requiring extensive technical knowledge.

Build and Deploy Integrations with webMethods

webMethods Integrations
With Integration 11, you can choose how you build and deploy your integrations. Whether you use the cloud editor or build them offline in Service Designer, you’ll have a shared code repository that enables reuse and collaboration. Once you’ve built your integrations, you can publish them into source code control, allowing you to automate testing and versioning—a crucial part of DevOps.
One of the critical features of Integration 11 is its deployment flexibility. You can choose where to deploy your integrations with no limitations. Including webMethods Edge runtimes as part of the integration execution layer allows you to deploy your integrations anywhere. Whether you want to deploy to the cloud or on-premises servers, Integration 11 makes it easy with a single click. The platform will pull your tested integration and any dependencies from the repository and deploy it with the correct configuration, ensuring seamless deployment and management of your integrations.

This is possible because of a new patent we were granted last fall for webMethods integration. The “scaffold” concept is a powerful tool for managing code modules and their dependencies, especially in complex hybrid and multi-cloud environments. With this innovation, automated deployment becomes much more streamlined, allowing for greater control over integration execution and optimizing resource utilization and performance based on specific requirements. This advancement will benefit organizations looking to simplify and enhance their integration processes in modern, dynamic IT landscapes.

webMethods Integration Control Plane:

The Integration Control Plane in webMethods Integration 11 is a game-changer, offering a unified view of all runtime environments across public clouds, private clouds, on-premises data centers, and hybrid environments. This capability simplifies management by providing a single console to monitor transactions that span multiple integration runtimes. With full traceability and performance metrics, you can easily manage all active runtimes from one location, improving governance and oversight.
One of the key benefits of the Integration Control Plane is its ability to provision integration runtimes automatically. Configuration and dependencies are identified and set up without breaking integrations into multiple pieces. This means you can have a single integration that spans multiple runtimes and monitor it end-to-end, simplifying the management of complex integration scenarios.

Monitor Integrations with webMethods

Furthermore, Integration 11 offers robust monitoring capabilities for all scalable runtimes and integration transactions. You can track performance metrics of each runtime, monitor health, and identify potential bottlenecks or issues. Observability metrics enable you to gain insights into integration workflows, visualize transaction flows, and troubleshoot anomalies proactively. Overall, these capabilities help ensure your integration processes’ smooth operation and performance, minimizing downtime and maximizing efficiency.

Multi-Cloud Strategy with webMethods

Incorporating multi-cloud integration into your strategy is crucial for future-proofing your business. Prioritizing flexibility and adaptability in your integration architecture will allow you to seamlessly connect and manage applications and data across various cloud environments. Integration 11 is designed to help you achieve this goal rapidly, securely, and at scale. With its sophisticated deployment automation, AI-powered integration capabilities, and flexibility for developers and business users, webMethods Integration offers a powerful platform for managing your integrations. Its robust security features also ensure that your data and applications are protected.

Jumpstart Your Journey to the Cloud with webMethods

By leveraging Integration 11, you can enhance your integration strategy and stay ahead in today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape.
