IBM® App Connect Enterprise unifies the capabilities of IBM Integration Bus (IIB) with those of App Connect Professional in a single offering to better serve the demands of clients who have integration applications and data to compete in today's economy. App Connect Enterprise replaces IIB in the IBM Cloud Integration offering, as was previously announced in Software Announcement 218-061, dated January 23, 2018.

App Connect Enterprise brings together the best of the existing, industry-trusted IBM integration technology with the new IBM Cloud native technologies to deliver a platform that supports a breadth of integration needs across a modern digital enterprise. With a focus on simple tooling to suit a range of user skillsets, the fast movement of data from any endpoint application to where it is needed, and deployment options to suit the right balance between control and budget, App Connect Enterprise delivers the only integration platform an organization needs to unlock its business data and deliver it to the right touch point, in multiple channels across the business. The primary capabilities and features of App Connect Enterprise include:

  • User-aligned integration tooling. An upgraded desktop user interface coupled with new award-winning tooling that brings together the teams that own and manage the data with those that have the context to apply it.
  • No-code RESTful integration services. Expose flows as RESTful APIs - without having to be an API development expert - and bring them seamlessly into API Connect to handle the management, securing, and socializing to development teams.
  • Flexible integration patterns. Broad support in a single platform for API and event-driven technologies to complement integrations supporting batch data movement, Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), and service-oriented architecture (SOA) meaning existing investments in integration can be used where they are optimal, while supporting the rapid build of new use cases.
  • Broad deployment options that include on premise, either to private datacenters or to dedicated instances on IBM Cloud Private, to the IBM Cloud, and on other cloud providers with the option to use containers.

Clients who choose to use their FlexPoints for App Connect Enterprise can continue to download IIB V10.
