?Business success is increasingly based on your ability to react to change. As new disruptive players enter markets and technology upends what consumers expect, organizations increasingly need to change plans in much shorter cycles than ever before. Modern software architectures and processes can make organizations more effective at dealing with this change and emerging as winners in their markets.

A new architectural framework called agile integration brings together three important architectural capabilities: containers, distributed integration, and application programming interfaces (APIs). This framework addresses how these key capabilities promote agility and power new processes within your organization to create competitive advantage.

Industries like travel and hospitality have been transformed by new ways of doing business—new services are now offered, and consumers interact with services differently. This trend of disruptive change is extending across other major industries—from financial services to government, spurred by new technologies and mindsets about how businesses and customers interact. These challenges are pushing existing organizations to radically transform their own IT technologies to deliver these new services.

To stay relevant, organizations need the ability to plan and execute changes to their software systems quickly.

For software delivery at today’s speeds, organizations need an agile infrastructure foundation. For this definition, agile does not refer to agile software development. It refers to the more traditional meaning of agile—flexible, able to move quickly.
