Software AG Announces webMethods AppMesh
Software AG (Frankfurt MDAX: SOW) today unveiled webMethods AppMesh, a configurable control plane for microservices, APIs and service mesh. Built as an extension of Software AG’s industry-leading webMethods API Management Platform, webMethods AppMesh adds application context to service mesh, which provides better agility, management and governance of microservices as business apps.
Designed to plug in to any service mesh, webMethods AppMesh gives organizations the application awareness needed to manage API-led integrations with more efficiency. Specifically, the new tool allows organizations to apply business rules to drive application-specific behavior, create application-level governance and security policies, add new services and capabilities, and perform context-aware application routing and orchestration – all without changing existing microservices or the underlying code.
Jerzy Niemojewski, CTO of Savangard, a European IT services and consultancy company specializing in Integration and API Management, says: "As a seasoned integrator with a professional team, we focus on integration and business processes automation projects. Our customers want the ability to leverage microservices to quickly add new applications without having to re-write code or change their architecture. We know that service mesh technology will move us in this direction and working with Software AG and their new webMethods AppMesh product will allow us to address the application layer aspects of our customer’s microservices architecture by minimizing coding and employing a configuration based policy approach.”
Some of the most important benefits of Software AG’s new webMethods AppMesh are its ability to provide organizations with deep visibility into how an application is running and who’s using it/what they’re doing with it; to centralize app governance; and to easily provision and scale across an architecture. Key features include:
“As businesses scale, their IT landscape and ecosystems become a lot more complex,” said Dr. Stefan Sigg, Chief Product Officer of Software AG. “While the service mesh was created to address network-level concerns such as service discovery, connectivity and security, it lacks application and business context. webMethods AppMesh adds the missing piece to make solutions understandable and usable to application owners and API providers. In turn, organizations are able to create new applications more quickly and decrease the time it takes to get these to market.”
