JBUG: London - Always on, mostly connected. Always integrated in the API economy.

For the first London JBoss User Group of the year, we’re hosting another evening designed to bring together the users of JBoss and related technologies over some pizza and a few cold beers.  

Who will be speaking?

Our speaker for the evening is Phil Prosser, who will be discussing JBoss Fuse integration, and the ways in which this technology can help shape the future for businesses who want to remain competitive. Phil is a Senior Solutions Architect at Red Hat, and you may have seen him speak at the Red Hat Summit in London last year. 


For most businesses, technology is becoming a major factor in them remaining competitive and being disruptive in the future. To stay ahead, businesses are looking to bring new applications/features to market much quicker and at a lower cost than they have done in the past. Many are looking to SaaS applications, Mobile applications, IOT applications, hybrid cloud applications, and exposing their business services as API’s for both internal and external consumption.

All of these initiatives require integration!

Remaining competitive needs a modern  application development and deployment platform. Many businesses are turning to a Microservice based architecture to increase their agility, and to a container based platform to increase their deployment automation and resilience. It makes sense for any modern integration platform to support and employ these same architectural principles.

In the session, Phil will explore how Red Hat’s Agile Integration architecture and it’s 3 key tenets :-

  • Distributed Integration
  • Containers
  • API Management 

can help businesses to realise an API focussed, always on, always integrated microservice platform that will support their requirements to stay competitive and disruptive both now and into the future. 

The session will include a demonstration of the Red Hat Agile Integration Architecture using Red Hat 3Scale API Management, Red Hat JBoss Fuse Integration Services, and Red Hat Openshift. 


Our JBUG:London meet-ups are informal, with plenty of opportunity for questions and group discussion, so the following timings are just an guide.
