In our latest episode of Integration Insider, Derek and Tim dive into a critical issue affecting integration strategies today: the emerging anti-pattern in common iPaaS platforms with monolithic architectures. They highlight how Azure Integration Services (AIS) offers a superior alternative through Micro Integration Platforms, bringing significant benefits to modern integration needs.


The Emerging Anti-Pattern: Monolithic Architectures in iPaaS


Traditional monolithic integration platforms, such as MuleSoft, bundle all integrations into a single platform. This approach creates significant inefficiencies and limitations:

  1. Lack of Flexibility and Scalability: Monolithic architectures struggle to adapt to evolving business needs and scale efficiently.

  2. Complexity in Management: With all integrations lumped together, managing access controls and policies across different departments becomes cumbersome.


Micro Integration Environments with AIS


Azure Integration Services (AIS) introduces the concept of Micro Integration Platforms, which addresses these issues by allowing integrations to be separated into distinct environments or landing zones:

  1. Enhanced Access Controls and Security: Each integration can have its own policies, significantly improving security and compliance management.

  2. Optimized Cost Management: Organizations can measure ROI per workload, ensuring cost-effective use of resources.

  3. Simplified Operations: Landing zones simplify the deployment and management of integrations, making operations more efficient.
