IBM API Connect® Cloud Service

API Connect Cloud Service provides organizations with critical API management capability to accelerate API-led digital transformation. As organizations embrace their digital transformation journey, APIs become critical to unlock the value of the organization's business data and assets. With the increasing adoption of APIs, consistency and governance are needed across the enterprise. API management can help you create, manage, secure, and socialize your ecosystem of APIs, and deliver new engagement models with superior user experiences.

API Connect Cloud Service expands the software as a service (SaaS) offerings by adding a new component, IBM API Connect Enterprise as a Service, available on Amazon Web Services (AWS). API Connect Enterprise as a Service brings the IBM full-featured API lifecycle management solution to AWS and is available through the AWS Marketplace.

API Connect Enterprise as a Service brings a new modern experience, new innovation capabilities, and industry standards for full lifecycle API management as a multitenant SaaS solution for businesses of all sizes. For organizations with cloud-native apps and data on AWS, this provides an enterprise-grade API management solution close to where their apps and data are already running.

IBM API Connect 10.0.5 delivered as LTSR

API Connect 10.0.5 is available as LTSR. Two years of support is available, with fixes made available for this release for organizations that utilize key components at this level. If organizations move off API Connect 10.0.5 to a future CD release, then LTSR would no longer apply.

Description

Top rule

Cloud Pak for Integration 2022.2.1

Included in Cloud Pak for Integration are the following foundational IBM integration offerings that deliver integration capabilities as entitled and included features under the single integrated interface:

  • App Connect Enterprise
  • API Connect Manager and API Connect Portal components of API Connect
  • IBM Aspera High Speed Transfer Server
  • IBM DataPower® Gateway Virtual Edition
  • Event Streams
  • MQ and IBM MQ Advanced
  • Cloud Pak for Integration features also available in other IBM Cloud Pak offerings:
    • Robotic Process Automation (RPA) platform
    • RPA environment
    • RPA unattended bot
    • Process Mining

Entitlement to Cloud Pak for Integration enables organizations to choose to use one or more of the existing separate integration offerings, as well as the integrated capabilities within the offerings. This flexible approach enables organizations to modernize their infrastructure over time without disrupting their existing deployed environment.

Cloud Pak for Integration 2022.2.1 delivered as LTSR

For some time, Cloud Pak for Integration has been available through the IBM continuous delivery (CD) model. With CD, organizations can contact support for two years after a specific release of Cloud Pak for Integration is available, however, fixes are only made available for the most recent release. Through CD, new features and enhancements are included in program temporary fixes (PTFs) along with corrective and preventative service. You receive new features and enhanced capabilities as soon as the code is ready. You can now receive enhancements in a faster and more continuous way without waiting for the next release.

Cloud Pak for Integration is now available as LTSR. Two years of support is still available, however, fixes will continue to be available for this release for organizations that utilize key components at this level. If organizations move off Cloud Pak for Integration 2022.2.1 to a future CD release, then LTSR would no longer apply.

MQ improvements, including MQ Streaming Queues and MQ native HA

MQ Streaming Queues can now make additional use of MQ messages that are being sent directly between applications. Organizations can also record and replay messages to help build applications that meet their business needs. MQ native HA offers a container native high availability configuration that can be deployed on Red Hat OpenShift on Power systems, as well as other Kubernetes environments in addition to Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform on other x86 and IBM Z IFL hardware platforms.

In addition, MQ Uniform Clusters, MQ Managed File Transfers, and MQ REST messaging APIs are enhanced.

Event Streams enhancements and updates

Built on open source Apache Kafka, Event Streams is an event-streaming platform that helps you build smart apps that can react to events as they happen. This release of Cloud Pak for Integration supports the latest version of Kafka as well as the latest version of Apicurio, which is used as the schema registry for Kafka message definitions. In addition to these updates, the Strimzi operator is enhanced so that organizations that use an identity system that supports OAuth can use the new operator for identity and authorization checks.

Aspera updates

Organizations with Cloud Pak for Integration can use Aspera to enable more data to be moved over networks, which might be impacted by latency or errors. The latest release of Cloud Pak for Integration includes Aspera High Speed Transfer Server 4.3. In addition, there is increased synergy between Aspera High Speed Transfer Server and Cloud Pak for Integration, with Aspera now making use of the Foundation Services Audit Logging Service, which is part of the set of Cloud Pak common services supporting all Cloud Paks. This enables logs on Aspera to be captured and reviewed alongside other logs. Aspera provides enhanced setup guidance for Statistics Monitoring.

App Connect Enterprise enhancements, including new lighter weight integration server runtime, new connectors, and natural language flow creation

Beginning with Cloud Pak for Integration 2022.2.1, App Connect Enterprise offers new command and components that optimize both startup time and resource utilization for an integration server. This is achieved by disabling unused components that are not needed by the integration flows being deployed.

In addition, new connectors are available in App Connect Designer for Azure Active Directory, IBM Sterling® Order Management System, Oracle Human Capital Management, and Zendesk. Users of these applications can now make use of these connectors to access their data.

In addition, Cloud Pak for Integration adds Goal Oriented Flow Assist that creates new integration flows on demand from a plain English description that describes what a user wants.

API Connect testing, co-authoring, and two-site disaster recovery deployments enhancements

In previous releases of API Connect in Cloud Pak for Integration, a number of features support AI-powered API Test generation. In this release of API Connect in Cloud Pak for Integration, a new Autotest Assist is available that automatically generates test data for the newly created API based on the API schema and specification. This test data can be used in development, test, and production environments.

An important benefit of Cloud Pak for Integration is the use of different integration components together, for example, when you are authoring APIs and can more easily build APIs that connect to the business data. With this release, organizations are able to select which API environment, such as Organization or Catalog, they want to work with from within App Connect Designer UI, and then create and publish APIs with these chosen preferences when using co-authoring features. This makes it much easier to build, deploy, and manage the API-driven integration flow as it moves through the development and deployment lifecycle.

As a disaster recovery strategy, organizations with the latest release of Cloud Pak for Integration can have API Connect containers running on Red Hat OpenShift deployed on two different sites. This implementation provides enhanced options for availability compared to previous releases of Cloud Pak for Integration.

Availability of API Connect Portal and API Connect Manager for Linux on IBM Z IFL hardware

Previous releases of Cloud Pak for Integration include a number of integration components supported for deployment on Red Hat OpenShift running on Linux on IBM Z IFL hardware. This gives organizations additional options for integrating key business applications across business platforms. Cloud Pak for Integration 2022.2.1 includes API Connect Manager and API Connect Portal as components of API Connect for deployment on Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Z IFL hardware. This enables businesses to more easily expose key assets as APIs if they run on IBM Z.

Change to limited free storage entitlement and capabilities

Beginning with Cloud Pak for Integration 2020.4.1, Cloud Pak for Integration includes some limited entitlement to IBM Storage Suite for Cloud Paks. A subset of capabilities of Storage Suite for Cloud Paks was included and limited to 12 TB of storage capacity. This was a limited offer for a single purchase only. Beginning July 1, 2022, for first time buyers of Cloud Pak for Integration, this offer changes in line with changes in the storage products included in the entitlement. There is no change for organizations that already have entitlement to the previous offer in effect before July 1, 2022. For more information, see the License Information document website.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
