API management: The glue holding the app economy together

The world is becoming more digital, intelligent and connected — and the driving force behind all of this are APIs, or application programming interfaces. APIs are not a new phenomenon. Developers have been using APIs as a building block for their applications and solutions for years. However, with the inception of things like agile, Internet … continue reading

Guest View: How to set your microservices up for failure

If you’ve been developing software for more than five years, you’ve probably seen this cycle before: New architecture emerges. Developers abandon previous best practices. Developers eventually realize that some of those “old-school” practices apply to the new architectural approach. Microservices are no exception. Some developers see microservices as a way to throw out established service-oriented … continue reading

SD Times Blog: Machine learning is the new SOA

It seems almost comical to think that artificial intelligence and machine learning are becoming, or rather have become, full-blown buzzwords. First of all, according to the annals of science fiction literature, we should have already invented a smarter-than-human AI by now, and according to “Terminator,” we’re 19 years overdue for a giant, AI-based nuclear annihilation … continue reading

Guest View: Microservices force companies to innovate or die

“Microservices” has become one of the hottest buzzwords of the past few years, and as with any game-changing new technology, there has certainly been no shortage of differing opinions around the topic. Some have been bullish about the adoption of microservices, calling them “SOA done right,” while naysayers claim that the idea is simply a … continue reading

2015: The year in services

Could it be that the SOA revolution of 2005 was simply premature? After years of pain and suffering, it would appear that the Service-Oriented Architecture is, in fact, all the rage. What our modern SOA landscape looks like versus what it looked like in 2005, however, shows quite a land shift. Ten years ago, services … continue reading

Oracle’s charge into the cloud creates fear of lock-in

Larry Ellison, Oracle’s executive chairman and CTO, said on Sunday at Oracle OpenWorld that the cloud, in general, was still in its infancy. To that end, he introduced several cloud product offerings, from Docker hosting to data hosting, to supply chain and more. There’s just one problem: Few people at the show seemed at all … continue reading

SD Times Blog: Predictions that didn’t work out

Steve Yegge recently posted a piece where he took to task his own predictions from 2004. I thought it would be fun to take a gander at some of the predictions pundits have made about programming over the years, and see just how wrong or right they were. If you’ve spent any time at all … continue reading

From the Editors: Microservices and containers—the missing pieces of SOA

Remember that famous headline from a few years back: “SOA is Dead!” Well, reports of SOA’s death have been greatly exaggerated. SOA—the term that defined service-oriented architecture—is alive and well today as the underpinning for microservices and containers. Together, microservices and containers comprise the final piece of a mechanism that ties Agile development, Continuous Delivery … continue reading

Docker and the ‘coolification’ of containers

His first presentation may have ended inauspiciously with the moderator cutting him off mid-sentence at the five-minute mark, but the developers sitting in Solomon Hykes’ 2013 PyCon session knew that the founder of Docker, an open-source application container engine, had unveiled a tool that would bring revolutionary simplicity to deployment. They began texting their respective … continue reading

Digging into microservices

Today’s monolithic applications are starting to become too big and too complicated for developers to maintain. When developers want to update a feature, they are forced to update the entire application. To solve this problem, organizations have been turning to a new software development approach: microservices. “Microservice architecture is the idea that rather than building … continue reading

API management comes of age

The acronym API has come a long way. In 1980, asking about an API meant building something for a massive corporate software package. In the 1990s it meant building with the tools for a 3D card or a sound card. Today, however, the term tends to mean just one thing: RESTful Web APIs. And what … continue reading
