webMethods.io Integration

The latest version of webMethods.io Integration offers a completely new way of working. The days of half a dozen different admin consoles and multiple integration products are over; all integrations in the webMethods.io Integration platform are controlled from and visible in a single place. Developers no longer have to be locked into a particular environment or development tool. With sophisticated deployment automation, developer flexibility, and the best security on the market, webMethods.io Integration is the ideal integration platform in the cloud. The latest release includes the following enhancements:

  • Design and develop integrations anywhere with your preferred tooling, whether it’s online in our cloud or offline via webMethods Designer.
    Build integrations in a cloud editor or build it inside Service Designer offline. Publish them into source code control and pull them into the cloud or run them in your own self-hosted runtimes. Orchestrate cross-platform workflows that incorporate integrations no matter where they’re hosted. Bring your own on-premises packages to the cloud. Now developers can choose whether to use the cloud UI or the full-service Eclipse-based Designer environment.
  • Deploy anywhere: Deploy integrations anywhere on any runtime, whether cloud or self-hosted. Provision an integration runtime from the central control plane, and your configuration and dependencies will be automatically identified and set up.
  • Eliminate duplicate effort and complicated local configurations: Leverage existing webMethods integrations and services in a new unified integration platform. Businesses that are running multiple integration platforms in multiple locations due to regional performance and data protection considerations, and which lack the ability to span hybrid environments, will now be able to manage these environments from a centralized place.
