  • DevOps and Automation

    Is your enterprise constrained by long, expensive and manual software delivery processes?
    Do you frequently have high failure rates of new releases?
    Could you benefit from increased collaboration across IT silos and also between IT and the business?

    DevOps

    Refers to an approach across the entire delivery pipeline with an emphasis on collaboration, communication, integration and automation between development teams and other segmented teams or silos. The aim of this is to provide improved deployment frequency, leading to faster time to market and increased agility within the business.

    Through automation of development, deployment and testing, there is an increased level of quality assured in the delivery process. Therefore, organisations experience lower failure rate of new releases and shortened lead time between fixes. Automated scripts can be developed to replace manual processes maximizing the efficiency, security, predictability and maintainability of operational processes.

    DevOps is about continuously breaking down segmented IT and business silos, removing bottlenecks and eliminating inefficiencies while maintaining a higher standard of quality products.

    While DevOps is more about people and organisational collaboration, the products and tools implemented also need consideration.

    ANATAS consultants have expertise in tools for describing software specifications, building and deploying software, version control systems, dependency management, defect and issue management, monitoring, automated testing, service virtualisation and infrastructure automation.

    ANATAS can help you with introducing or optimising your DevOps or Automation processes across your complete application lifecycle, enabling your teams to collaborate effectively to deliver better applications, faster.

  • API Architecture & Design

    Your APIs can be a key to your company's success as it has been for companies like Twitter, Twilio and Box. Get it wrong and you miss out on a big opportunity. APIs can be among a company's greatest assets and designing APIs where you put your users in control is a powerful capability, realised by companies such as Facebook and AWS. These same APIs have become a foundational technology for the development of robust and scalable enterprise applications.

    The demand for flexibility and extensibility has driven the development of APIs and tools alike and no matter how careful you are with your API, without a solid foundation it will crumble quickly, costing you thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars down the road.

    A good starting point before embracing API Architecture and Design is:

    • Who is our target user for this API?

    • Which of our products/services do we want them to be working with?

    • What are their use cases for integrating with our API?

    • What technologies will they be using to integrate with our API?

    • What other services will they want our API to interact with?

    ANATAS can assist in creating a rich API "product" that is flexible and extensible, taking the time up front to ensure that your API is well designed. This is achieved by utilising pattern design that helps to ensure that your API remains uniform across the full interface, keeping resources and methods standardised and easily implemented by your developers.

  • next gen application integration

    The emerging cloud integration architecture

    Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) and cloud-native application integration represents the next generation of application integration. Integration across the enterprise has always been challenging and the enterprises of today are no exception due to the added complexity and increase of new approaches and technologies . Businesses are being transformed through disruptive technologies for enterprise applications (eg. Salesforce), to infrastructure platforms (eg. Amazon EC2) and social media services (eg. Facebook, Twitter). To support agility, growth and ease of connectivity, a new category of integration solutions has emerged known as Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) and cloud-native integration.

    These two emerging integration approaches are similar in that they share common themes such as enabling software engineers to deploy, manage and govern cloud based solutions. However, they differ in their history and the way that they have evolved.  IPaaS evolved from legacy integration platforms that are now cloud-enabled whereas cloud-native application integration have been architected and developed as a cloud solution. Cloud-native integration solutions provide the flexibility to integrate development frameworks, languages and services to suit your needs, usually realised through Platform as a Service (PaaS) technologies.

    A good example is through service orchestration where an iPaaS solution will use model driven development to orchestrate services and then deploy to a private, hybrid or public cloud environment. On the other hand, leveraging a solution such as Plain Old Service Orchestration (POSO) allows the user to define service orchestration designs using POSO's JavaScript domain-specific language (DSL).  This approach is intended to replace heavy-weight integration and orchestration systems which are geared for hybrid business/technical users. The heavy-weight integration and orchestration systems often implement archaic standards, e.g., BPMN, and BPEL, and are very difficult to operate in a modern devops landscape.

    ANATAS has vast expertise within working with clients to iteratively cloud-enable their enterprise which can start with delivering a Proof of Concept or a free environment health check.

  • High Volumes at High Velocity

    Accelerating the Flow of Data in the Internet of Things

    Data being streamed can not only be large in volume at a particular time, but the data could be multi modal, can vary in quality, format, representation form and levels of dynamicity. Internet of Things (IoT) real-time data streaming presents its own challenges and due to this there has been significance innovation in messaging and data transport. ANATAS has worked with companies needing the ability to perform high-volume, high-velocity and high-scale collection and streaming of data efficiently over local and wide area networks.

    anatas has placed key focus on:

    • High-volume data collection at high speeds, in real time for a wide variety of data sources

    • Data collection over local and wide area networks

    • Adaptable architecture, providing one-to-one, one-to-many, many-to-one, and many-to-many connections

    • Highly available and reliable data delivery

    • Direct delivery to targets for either stream or batch processing

    Contact ANATAS today for more information on how we can assist you with your data streaming requirements for IoT.

  • A cloud-native application is composed of multiple micro services and each service is elastic, resilient, and composable.

    They are typically designed following a micro services architecture and API exchange pattern hosted within a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) environment which provides the flexibility to integrate development frameworks and languages that suit your needs.

    Transforming systems to be service-oriented was the first approach however the infrastructure was not yet delivered as a service therefore limited the usefulness of a service-oriented system and where most if not all implementations were heavily vendor middleware influenced with an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) being sold as a requirement for SOA.

    We are finding more often than not, the traditional approach is brittle whereas next gen application development provide organisations the ability to allow small autonomous teams to quickly deliver features and changes. This alleviates waiting months for integration and releases, allowing fast measurement of usage and rapid changes accordingly by interchanging service components of the application rather than deploying the entire application.

    Having the ability to deliver cloud-native software faster and at scale, allows rapid innovation and will separate the next-generation of business leaders from the rest.


    ANATAS have extensive experience with next gen application engineering and work closely with our clients you to assist in exploring opportunities in your organisation. We have a range of starter-kits ready to go such as:

    • Kick starter health check

    • Monolith breakdown sensor check

    • Architecture Mobilisation

    • Proof-of-concepts

    • Next gen standards and patterns

    • Cloud Service Provider selections

    • Next gen adoption road maps and strategy
