APIs, Middleware and Enterprise Integration
APIs are not a ‘silver bullet’, they still have to be integrated … this is where middleware comes into play and the combination of an API / middleware architecture proves its worth. (Author: Owen Meredith, GLU Global, 2016)

GLU.WARE User Manual


The GLU.Guide provides GLU.Ware users with a comprehensive user manual and guides to rapidly understand, work with and master GLU.Ware.
GLU.Ware Configuration Dashboard


The GLU.Console is hosted by GLU and used by our Clients and Sandbox users to configure their integrations which are compiled as GLU.Engines that they deploy within their security domain. Use the link below to login to your GLU.Console account.

What is an iPaaS?
Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) is a suite of cloud services enabling development, execution and governance of integration flows connecting any combination of on premises and cloud-based processes, services, applications and data within individual or across multiple organisations.

What is No Code?
No Code is a software development approach that requires few, if any, programming skills to quickly build an application. This allows line of business (LOB) employees who have the necessary institutional knowledge and understand the business requirements for an app, but lack knowledge of programming languages, to create software applications such as a form or website, or add functionality to an existing site or app. No Code decouples programming languages and syntax from logic, and instead takes a visual approach to software development to enable rapid delivery. In this sense, no-code is similar to low-code development.
+ -
What is Low Code?
The key difference is that Low Code platforms use less abstraction -- that is, they incorporate some coding and require some knowledge of programming languages -- and are often used by professional developers within an enterprise IT department.
+ -
Is GLU.Ware really No Code?
Yes, GLU.Ware requires no programming knowledge whatsoever ... so GLU.Ware is truly No Code.
+ -
What is unique about GLU.Ware's Architecture?
We have decoupled the NO CODE GLU.Console configuration environment from the runtime Integration components - the GLU.Engines. This segregation puts the control of all data being processed by the GLU.Engines completely in the Clients control.

What is Enterprise Application Integration (EAI)?
EAI is the process of connecting disparate systems to allow for “communication” and data sharing between them.
+ -
What is an Enterprise Integration Pattern (EIP)?
EIPs define a series of steps that provide the framework for enterprise integration solutions. EIPs are not tied to specific implementations but provide a method of “communication” between systems. The concept of an EIP was made popular by Gregor Hohpe and Bobby Woolf in their book ‘Enterprise Integration Patterns’. Together they created a catalogue in which they explain 65 patterns that fall under what they call the messaging integration style. They define this type of integration as using “messaging to transfer packets of data frequently, immediately, reliably, and asynchronously, using customisable formats.”
+ -
What is Enterprise integration?
Enterprise integration is the process of configuring various systems to work together in order to increase efficiency and interoperability. The goal is to use all the systems together like a well-oiled machine towards the realisation of the mission of the organisation.
+ -
What signals would tell me my company has a need for an Enterprise Integration Platform?
You have a patchwork of systems and databases developed without architecture or planning. Data is fragmented and silo'ed. Legacy systems are holding your business back. Launching new systems is materially a function of the integration complexity. Integrating systems is too slow and expensive.

What is Metcalf's Law and why is it relevant to Enterprise Integration?
Metcalfe's law characterises many of the network effects of communication technologies and networks and integrated ecosystems. Metcalfe's Law is related to the fact that the number of unique possible connections in a network of 'n' nodes can be expressed mathematically as: n*(n-1)/2 ... which is asymptotically proportional to nxn. Integrated Ecosystems with a point-to-point integration architecture suffer the implications of this mathematical fact. By adopting an Enterprise Integration architecture, the number of connections = n.
