The traditional development of applications is giving way to a new era of modern application development.
Modern apps are on a steep rise. Increasingly, the application experience is the new customer experience. Faster innovation velocity is needed to deliver on constantly changing customer requirements. The cloud native approach to modern application development can effectively address these needs:
“Shifting to an API-first application strategy is critical for enterprise organizations as they rearchitect their future portfolio,” said Michelle Bailey, Group Vice President, General Manager and Research Fellow at IDC.
Modern applications are built using composable cloud native architectures. We see more modern apps being built and deployed because application components are disaggregated into reusable services from a single integrated image. These and other API’s are distributed across multiple SaaS, cloud or on-premises. Developers can use API’s from across all these properties to build their apps.
The benefits of this ideal API-first world in a native hybrid-cloud, multi-cloud future are:
We want a future where a developer can pick and choose any API’s (internal or 3rd party) needed to build their app, consume them and assign policies consistently across multiple providers. Connect, secure, observe and upgrade apps easily. Have confidence in the reputation and security of the apps, right from the time the IDE is fired and into production.
And do all of this with velocity and minimal friction between development and cloud engineering/SRE teams.
Even as some sprint out ahead in the cloud native world, bringing everyone along – wherever they are on their journey – is a top priority. We still need to bridge back to where the data resides in data centers, SaaS vendors, and in some cases even mainframes.
Developers will need to discover and safely connect to where the data and APIs are – wherever they reside. And be able to see top/down in apps. Observability throughout the stack is needed.
For a seamless developer experience, it will need the following:
Here’s how we’re solving for it:
Cloud engineering and SRE teams are operating in increasingly complex environments. In an API-first, cloud native world, the ownership of connectivity, security and observability shifts to cloud engineering and SRE teams. While this shift delivers the promise of far faster development cycles, it also requires the cloud and SRE teams to assume additional responsibilities previously managed by other teams.
Making all of that happen while seamlessly integrating with existing on-prem environments is the multiplier effect that accelerates innovation.
Cisco is reimagining how developers of modern applications build, manage and secure applications. Giving the flexibility and choice to develop on any technology wherever it resides, fuels innovation and delivers value faster.
