  • Re-Inventing Enterprise IT Around APIs & Apps

    1. 1. Re-Inventing Enterprise IT Around APIs & Apps John Mathon AAA CIOC Presentation September 5, 2013
    2. 2. Agenda  The Connected Business  PaaS
    3. 3. “Most exciting time in Enterprise Infrastructure”  Cloud  Mobile  Big Data  devOps  PaaS (+ iPaaS, aPaaS, BEaaS, BPMaaS, DaaS, …)  Social  APIs  SaaS  Open Source  New languages Transforming the speed of innovation, reducing cost, providing new revenue opportunities, reducing risk, scaling easier
    4. 4. The “pile?” API Management and SOA Cloud Adoption and Automation Mobile Apps Mobile BYOD Digital Business Ecosystems PaaS SaaS Adoption Executive Dashboards Federated Identity Social Networking Big Data Implementations Big Data Analytics Open Source Adoption Enterprise App Store
    5. 5. WSO2 You: Your Ecosystem • Business A Connected Business Business = {People, Processes, Data} 3rd Party Apps API Private PaaS Ecosystem API Ap p Ap p Ap p Business = {People, Processes, Data} 3rd Party Apps API Business = {People, Processes, Data} WSO2 enables your Connected Business
    6. 6. What is a Connected Business?  It’s about connecting:  Internal Systems  Internal Groups – systems and people  Employees  External Partners – systems and people  Potential External Partners – systems and people  Customers  Potential Customers Division A
    7. 7. What kind of Connectivity?  APIS  Social Apps  Mobile Apps  Web Apps  Email  iPaaS, BPMaaS, DaaS  PaaS for APIs or SaaS
    8. 8. What Kind of Connectivity? What/Who? APIs Social Apps Mobile Apps Web Apps (SaaS) Email iPaaS, bpmP aaS, DaaS PaaS for APIs or SaaS Internal Systems X X X X X X X Employees X X X X X X X Partners X X X X X X X Potential Partners X X X X X X X Customers X X X X X X X Potential Customers X X X X X X X
    9. 9. Why be more connected?  Opportunities to create stickiness with consumers and partners  Market new products to existing customers or new customers  Leveraging brilliant ideas of potential new community development partners to leverage your APIs for new Applications and Mobile Applications  Creating new services out of existing services or with improvements, modifications or additions of new services  Leveraging existing partners better
    10. 10. Why be more connected?  Re-use existing services  Improve Efficiency of devOps within your organization  To scale applications while sharing resources more efficiently  To reduce initial cost of products and grow revenues and costs in line
    11. 11. Refactoring your business step 1  Take the systemic assets of your business:  Business processes  Data  Services  Decompose your existing business processes, data and services into capabilities
    12. 12. Step 2-3 to refactoring your business  Take existing services, data and business processes and turn them into API’s.  Integration using DSS and ESB, other pieces of middleware SOA stack allow you to take existing assets and put a new face on them.  Break the connection of service lifecycle from API lifecycle  Your services and data should be able to change when you need or desire to change them without affecting consumers of those APIs that use those services or data.  Improving your APIs should not affect your existing services or data if they don’t need to.
    13. 13. Steps 4-8 to refactoring your business  Create new services  Build a community  Compose new products and services  Do not lose control  Collect data on your new products and services  Improve incrementally
    14. 14. How does WSO2 Help? Connecting Existing Svcs and Data • Big Data Enabled BAM, CEP, Data Services for Big Data and Analytics – collect and analyze customer or operational data • Respond to problems faster • Create events on correlations • Iterate faster on what’s important • Improve customer service • Be smarter, faster, more agile API Centric ESB – Enable you to connect to more partners faster, create business patterns to build agility faster using API Centric technology
    15. 15. How Does WSO2 help? Don’t Lose Control  Identity Manager – Single Sign On, Federated Identity, AAA, 2 factor authentication, Advanced entitlements and rule based permissions. • Governance and Rule Engine – Manage connectivity safely, manage deployment, manage partners and processes to meet government and other predetermined standards
    16. 16. How does WSO2 help? Publish, Socializing and Collaboration • API Manager – Manage APIs for external value chain and customer use in mobile Apps. Establish tiers of service, track usage of APIs, social data collection, social data analytics, versioning. Also use internally to track internal re-use, ease of re-use, control access  API and App Store – Populate your own App store with internal Apps, APIs, complete the circle of API Centric usage. Drag and Drop simplicity, Mobile App distribution, BYOD (Beta 3rd qtr 2013)
    17. 17. API Management and the “Store” have emerged as dominant compelling unstoppable API Management  Estimated 13,000 APIs generated by companies in the last 5 years  Primary way to integrate and deliver value in your digital ecosystem App Store  600,000 Apps in Itunes store  Easier to adopt for the user  Easier to manage for the vendor
    18. 18. Enterprise Store for APIs, Applications, Mobile Applications
    19. 19. Forrester Places WSO2 in top 2 for API Management “Layer 7 and Wso2 Blend service integration and a good api Consumer experience. Most API management adopters among our clients will need to build their corporate platforms on existing systems and integration efforts. So they will need a good client app developer portal, traffic management sophistication, and the means to map, convert, and manage existing service endpoints.”* * The Forrester WaveTM: API Management Platforms, Q1 2013 By Eve Maler and Jeffrey s. Hammond, February 5, 2013

    21. 21. API Centric Business  Create a social environment around your APIs, Applications and Mobile Applications to drive innovation and re-use.  Refinement of APIs by separating API and service. Develop new capabilities faster  Establish SLA tiers for APIs and services to segregate customers  Control what applications get built (Mobile or other) that utilize your APIs IT  Learn about usage both from internal usage and external to figure out  Scaling  Deprecation  Opportunities  Problems  Role driven security with fine- grained entitlements  Manageability – manage the lifecycle of APIs, Applications and Mobile Applications, remove users and their data - security
    22. 22. How does WSO2 help? Scale and Enable Partners  Stratos 2 – devOps deployment within the enterprise or in the cloud for any application, create agility, daily upgrades, elastic scalability, reduced cost.  AppFactory Ecosystem PaaS – Complete the devOps story with the industries only ECOSYSTEM PaaS. Bring your enterprise into the modern age.  Agility, governance, API Centric development  Full governance of lifecycles • Why built • Why Vmware has CloudFoundry • Why Apple has the iTunes store
    23. 23. PaaS  Hosted application environment for building and deploying applications 10/8/2013 23 Environment for building and Deploying Apps + Cloud Characteristics
    24. 24. WSO2 PaaS
    25. 25. Shared Infrastructure • Shared elastic runtime for all applications • Shared used of source repositories, build farm, testing servers and more.
    26. 26. WSO2 PaaS
    27. 27. App Factory  Simplest way to create, build, test, stage, deploy and operate applications  External Use Cases  Ecosystem PaaS  aPaaS (Building SaaS applications)  Extend API Management with a PaaS for mobile or other application development  Extend SaaS Applications with a PaaS  iPaaS, bpmPaaS, DaaS, …  Internal Use Cases  DevOps  Internal Open Source Collaborative Development
    28. 28. What Does App Factory look like?
    29. 29. Extend API Management with a PaaS Extend SaaS Applications with a PaaS  If you have a successful API you will want to manage the development of applications using your API with a PaaS.  Twitter probably wishes it had done so  iTunes manages their devices with a store and regulates look, feel, money generation, security  If you have a successful SaaS application like Salesforce, SAP, Workday, … you will want to have a PaaS
    30. 30. iPaaS, bpmPaaS, aPaaS,… • Successful SaaS companies such as Salesforce, SAP, Workday are driving the growth of iPaaS. • App Factory has the capability to be used to create any type of PaaS and has many of the components built in to implement specific type PaaS’s • Corporations can easily take App Factory and build an iPaaS for their SaaS solutions or offer a full development PaaS with their APIs included
    31. 31. DevOps  A PaaS gives you devOps speed and agility however at the cost of some flexibility in most cases  A PaaS incorporates aspects of your development tools, lifecycle, build process, project management, issue tracking, operations, deployment, hardware choices in some cases, VMs you may use, virtually everything you do in development is subject to change  Enter into PaaS slowly for devOps and choose areas to succeed, areas with maximum advantage to devOps efficiency – new mobile projects, SaaS development  Choose a PaaS with little vendor lock in, with plug points to plug everything, a vendor with maximum componentization and adherence to standards, i.e. WSO2
    32. 32. Inner Source ( Internal Open Source)  Many large companies have a lot of barriers and silos to break down besides agreeing to a common tool set and devOps.  Collaboration is also about culture  AppFactory is designed to be social, to enable ad-hoc open source like sharing and collaboration if desired. Inner Source can be a way to boost creativity, increase re-use, decrease time to market for new ideas  Speak to us later if you are interested in this ground breaking approach to development
    33. 33. New IT – Innovation without constraints Packaged App EAI / SOA Cloud Service DatabasesOld IT APIs New IT: PaaS Powered, Self-service, Ticketless, Mobile Enabled, Socially Integrated
    34. 34. The New IT • Not just for programmers • Self-Service • To Create Apps • To Deploy Apps (somewhere) • Based on Apps, Data and APIs not on servers, disks, memory • Pay as you go • Managed and governed
    35. 35. What is the App Factory ALM? • Role based Control and oversight of who can do what in the system • Flexibility in the number of stages, the promotion rules to get from one stage to the next • Providing automated “test” hooks to insure applications meet some criteria • Collaboration • Provide human checkpoints before an application or API proceeds to next stage • Fine grained role based entitlement to control who can see, publish or subscribe to what Apps, APIs and mobile Apps or other assets in the store

    39. 39. WSO2 has emerged as the leading open source company in all middleware categories  Application Infrastructure (Classic Middleware)  API Management (Middleware to the cloud)  App Factory Ecosystem PaaS (leading PaaS) BUT DON’T TAKE FORRESTER OR GARTNER’s WORD FOR IT
    40. 40. 150+ Production Support Customers(Not including development support, training)
    41. 41. Open Source or Proprietary Proprietary Open Source Reliability Sure Ebay (3 billion transactions/day) Reliability Performance Sure Open Source Big Data is only viable solution for many applications Performance Scalability Sure Ditto Scalability Mission Critical Sure Critical SaaS vendors depend on Open Source Mission Critical Cost higher lower Cost Support mediocre lifeblood Support Roadmap Vendor choice to maximize profit Very flexible Roadmap Vendor Lock In Absolutely No bias Vendor Lock In Re-Usable Software Not unless they have to Has to be reusable or will not sell Re-Usable Software
    42. 42. “Open Release” Business Model • All features released openly : No community vs. Enterprise edition • Uses business-friendly open source license such as Apache • Maintenance and support only to customers/licensees • Value = Production Support services and maintenance
    43. 43. Your Enterprise Reference Platform Architecture should include WSO2 The only complete open source Componentized Apache 2 licensed cloud middleware platform
