What is App Connect?

IBM® App Connect allows you to easily connect applications and data across all your environments. It supports multiple integration styles – from traditional SOA to modern event, API and microservices – to provide a single integration tool for your business. The award-winning platform enables you to leverage hundreds of secure pre-built connectors and integration features to support the most complex enterprise requirements. App Connect can be deployed in any cloud or on-premises system, giving you the flexibility to run the integration solution close to your applications, wherever it is needed.

Simple to use

Enables users to focus on building the business logic, instead of dealing with surrounding infrastructure. Users create flows faster, without requiring deep application platform or domain knowledge.

Any integration style, one solution

Supports multiple integration styles, across batch and real-time patterns. Users can mix and match capabilities to solve simple business issues or very complex integration challenges.

Deploy anywhere

Use as a managed service or deploy across a multi-cloud or on-premises infrastructure. Deploy close to applications and data to increase integration performance, lower latency times and save costs.
