Cloud Integration Platform enables an organization's integration specialists to connect and integrate applications and systems through fast, simple, and secure packaging. Cloud Integration Platform delivers capabilities by taking advantage of the capabilities of existing, market-leading IBM® integration products that are included offerings. Cloud Integration Platform provides an implementation through a single part number and charge metric. Organizations can more easily deploy and take advantage of as much capability as needed from the included offerings.
Key included offerings of Cloud Integration Platform:
- Cloud Private foundation allows Cloud Integration Platform to deploy on Cloud Private, which is the IBM offering for managing Kubernetes and containers. This cloud native, private cloud environment is ideal for deploying container-based applications and is delivered as an included offering of the Cloud Integration Platform.
- IBM App Connect Enterprise
(5724-J05) unifies the capabilities of IBM Integration Bus (IIB) with those of App Connect Professional in a single offering to
better serve the demands of organizations that integrate applications and data to compete in the
current economy. 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 with:
- Enhanced functionality for integrating applications both on-premise and in the cloud. This includes REST APIs, Graphical Data Mapper and Data Format Description Language (DFDL) improvements, and support for MQ Telemetry Transport messages
- Easier administration by using the IIB web-browser user interface, which includes new capabilities for deployment, creating, editing, and attaching policy documents
- Flexible interactions with IBM MQ that extend support to offer connections to multiple, local queue managers when getting and putting messages
- Deployment options that enable clients to achieve a balance between control, management overhead, and budget
- IBM API Connect®
(5725-Z22) offers a comprehensive set of enterprise-grade, API management capabilities. It also
delivers support for the clustering of a large number of nodes within a single datacenter and also
across multiple data centers. API Connect provides the following key capabilities for users to:
- Create Microservices and expose them as APIs in minutes.
- Manage, deploy, scale, and socialize APIs.
- Delivers secure, control, mediate, and optimize access to APIs by using leading, standard industry practices.
- IBM DataPower® Gateway Virtual Edition (5725-T09) serves as
the API gateway for the comprehensive IBM API solution called API Connect. This gateway provides a world-class solution that is
designed to meet the most stringent API business requirements in the industry. It:
- Provides access and authentication services at the edge of the network.
- Helps secure the message content for all API interactions and then utilizes advanced routing controls to manage and enforce service level policies throughout the enterprise. All API interactions are logged and reported to the IBM API Connect Analytics component, which enables both runtime and historical analytics and reporting.
DataPower Gateway Virtual Edition can be used in stand-alone mode to help provide security, control, mediation and optimized access to a full range of mobile, web, API, service-oriented architecture (SOA), business-to-business (B2B), and cloud workloads. Organizations can rapidly expand the scope of valuable IT assets to new channels that provide clients, employees, and partners secure access to critical resources.
- MQ Advanced V9.1 (5724-H72) is messaging middleware software that simplifies and accelerates the integration of diverse applications and business data across multiple platforms. It uses message queues to facilitate the exchanges of information and offers a single messaging solution for cloud, mobile, Internet of Things (IoT), and on-premises environments. By connecting virtually everything from a simple pair of applications to the most complex business environments, MQ helps organizations improve business responsiveness, control costs, reduce risk, and gain real-time insight from mobile, IoT and sensor data.
- IBM Event Streams (5737-H33) is
a high-scale, event-streaming platform built on the popular open source Apache Kafka technology.
Apache Kafka has emerged as a key open source technology that underpins a new generation of
responsive and intelligent applications. Event Streams helps organizations focus on writing
applications rather than spending time deploying middleware. This gives organizations the confidence
to deploy mission-critical workloads and helps them connect these new applications to existing
- Helps make Apache Kafka easy and intuitive to use and ready for mission-critical work.
- Helps connect to existing infrastructure.
- IBM Aspera® High-Speed Transfer Server (5737-F70) combines the capabilities of IBM Aspera Enterprise Server and IBM Aspera Connect Server (Connect for Web Access) with the addition of data streaming functions (IBM FASP® Stream for Data) and optimized bandwidth tiers. With patented Fast and Secure Protocol (FASP) transport at its core, Aspera's High-Speed Transfer Server delivers maximum transfer throughput that is independent of distance and network conditions, typically achieving 10-100x speed improvement over file transfer protocol/secure copy protocol (FTP/SCP) and HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP), with end-to-end security and exceptional bandwidth control.

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.
Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
