Cloud Platform Services

Mia-Platform mentioned as a Sample Vendor in the  Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Cloud Platform Services, 2023 for Digital Integration Hub

10 September 2023 – Mia-Platform has been mentioned in the Gartner report “Hype Cycle for Cloud Platform Services, 2023” by Yefim Natis, David Smith, Nicholas Carter as a Sample Vendor for Digital Integration Hub.

According to Gartner: “As the graphic of the Hype Cycle illustrates, the innovation in cloud platform services is unrelenting. New business models and technology breakthroughs drive the need for support and reinforcement at the platform level, and the distributed cloud, driven by its reach and scale, remains the stage of most modern technology innovation”.

Among these innovations, the Gartner analyst Andrew Humphreys recommends to “Adopt a DIH-enabled architecture to provide a rich, responsive omnichannel experience for large audiences (hundreds of thousands of users or greater) and to reduce the cost associated with sustaining the digital initiative generated workload hitting the SORs”.

He also writes about the Business Impact of the Digital Integration Hub, that helps:

  • “Provide digital application clients with a richer and more responsive experience than is achieved by accessing applications directly;
  • Reduce application workload and limit the fees paid to SaaS providers for API consumption;
  • Help enable 24/7 operations. The hub is not dependent on application availability;
  • Improve business agility by decoupling the API layer from the applications;
  • Maintain an up-to-date picture of fast-changing data used for analytics, notification services and data integration.

The research also mentions Mia-Platform as one of the Sample Vendors for Digital Integration Hub.

What is a Digital Integration Hub?

According to Gartner, “A digital integration hub (DIH) provides low-latency, high-throughput API- and event-based data access by aggregating and replicating multiple application sources into a data management layer that synchronizes with the applications via event-driven patterns. A DIH enables scalable, 24/7 data access, reduces workloads on the systems of record (SORs) and improves business agility. Organizations can reap additional value by using a DIH in analytics, data integration and composition scenarios.

Digital initiatives leverage APIs and, increasingly, events to unlock core business applications data and business logic. Traditional integration architectures can face severe performance, scalability and availability issues stemming from excessive workload generated in the SORs from new digital requests. A DIH is an increasingly popular alternative architecture to overcome these issues and delivers additional benefits that improve business agility*”.
