Hybrid Integration starting to run on IBM Cloud Private

Do you want to get explanations on how to do hybrid integration with IBM Middleware products, cloud native app  running on public or private cloud?

The first hybrid integration configuration with cloud-native application (angular 4, nodejs/expressjs) is deployed on IBM Cloud Private, connect to API Connect running on premise, connected to IBM Integration bus to process an interface mapping flow, connected to a SOAP service to expose CRUD operations for inventory data source which runs on Liberty, and the data are persisted in DB2.

Next week the 10/10 is the IBM Cloud University in Berlin, a lot of good sessions will be presented on public and private cloud. I will deliver one presentation and two deep dive labs:

  1. Watson Discovery with weather collection: Reference. This lab was already presented internally to our technical staff in Dallas, London, Melbourne and Tokyo. The public web page tutorial can be accessed in the IBM Cloud Garage Method tutorial web site
  2. Watson Conversation to implement an IT Support chat bot (Reference): This is also a lab presented multiple times to our internal technical staff. The public web page tutorial can be accessed in the IBM Garage Method Tutorial

If you want to go over the hello world and access to some best practices to implement those solution, please come or visit those tutorials.

Hybrid integration with cloud native application

With the importance of cloud development, one major subject is to address how to integrate with existing assets running behind the firewalls. I am leading a new effort at IBM to deliver implementation validation covering integration between a angular 4 nodejs/expressjs app deployed as cloud foundry app or within docker container and integrating existing SOA service and on-premise database. The solution is open-source and can be downloaded from
