The IBM Cloud Integration offering is delivered under a consumption model that changes the way you can use and deploy software. This offering can enable you to help simplify planning for adoption and growth of critical, IBM enterprise products.

This new release of IBM Cloud Integration V1.2 includes new flex point allocations that are available for IBM App Connect Enterprise non-production and selected IBM DataPower Gateway Virtual Edition modules.

Cloud Integration

This cohesive and modular offering can maximize essential capabilities to enable the integration of applications and data usage and increase productivity and speed to help you compete in the current, accelerated marketplace. To maximize the value of your IT investments and have a competitive advantage, this portfolio can help you integrate, transform, manage, optimize, secure, and bridge applications and data so you can maximize the value of your IT investments and competitive advantage. It allows you to:

  • Seamlessly connect to hundreds of end points to applications and data in the cloud and on premise deployments with API Connect Enterprise.
  • Rapidly create, manage, secure, socialize, analyze, and monetize APIs to accelerate innovation, unlock new markets and drive new revenue with API Connect Enterprise and DataPower Gateways.
  • Efficiently scale with performance and scalability to meet the Service Level Agreements (SLAs) of your business applications with IBM MQ Advanced.
  • Enable high-speed collaboration, quickly transfer, distribute, and synchronize large files and data sets globally, and orchestrate, monitor, and control data transfers and workflows with the IBM Aspera offerings.


With this offering, IBM delivers a new consumption model, FlexPoints. Under this model, the products within the offering are each valued at a given number of FlexPoints. You purchase FlexPoints in packs of 1000 and allocate these points across the products within the offering according to your needs. Because your needs can change over time, FlexPoints enable a flexible consumption model for all the products within the offering. You can adjust your deployment of FlexPoints among the products in the offering at any time within the bounds of your overall FlexPoint entitlement, and buy additional FlexPoints as needed to scale your solution. This allows you to deploy FlexPoints on specific products today, and other products tomorrow, as you demand additional or different applications. For a more in-depth discussion of FlexPoints and how they can help you scale your solutions contact your IBM representative.

App Connect Enterprise replaces IIB in the IBM Cloud Integration offering, as was previously announced.

    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.
