The Cloud Standards Customer Council™ (CSCC™) has published a new reference architecture to assist enterprise IT professionals with the integration requirements of hybrid cloud computing. IT environments are now fundamentally hybrid in nature – devices, systems, and people are spread across the globe, and at the same time virtualized. Achieving integration across this ever-changing environment, and doing so at the pace of modern digital initiatives, is a significant challenge. This deliverable explains the core reference architecture and concepts for hybrid integration in the enterprise. It is available for download here.

Hybrid integration can be looked at from many perspectives including application, data, and infrastructure. This document positions hybrid integration from an application perspective, and presents the reference architecture as a seamless integration from cloud to on-premises for events, APIs, and data.

The CSCC authors will host a complimentary webinar on March 9, 2017 from 11:00am – 12:00pm ET to introduce the whitepaper. Attendees will learn best practices from leading-edge enterprises that are starting to leverage a hybrid integration platform to take advantage of best-of-breed, cloud-based and on-premises integration approaches. Event details are posted on the CSCC’s website.
