Key features

Connect legacy and modern services seamlessly

Package legacy applications with APIs as an abstraction layer

An API abstraction and modernization layer insulates client-facing applications from shifting backend services. Legacy back ends hold critical data that is required for client applications and therefore must be unlocked in order to be scaled out to new cloud services and apps. With an API management platform, you can add security, analytics, and scalability to legacy services.

Connect to modern interfaces

Legacy applications and services hold critical data that can enable new mobile, web, and voice experiences for your customers. To do this at an accelerated pace, you can modernize legacy services via RESTful interfaces, unlocking them to be consumed by new cloud services and apps.
