Integration in the World of Generative AI

What role does integration play in the world of Generative AI? Do you still need to architect connectivity and develop APIs, when LLMs can write code for you? Come to this session to learn about the investment IBM has made in its Integration portfolio, and it dovetails with training, tuning, and leveraging LLMs. We will also talk about IBM’s iPaaS platform, our award-winning API platform, IBM’s partnership with the best-in-class API security software, and our first-of-a-kind Kafka EDA platform.

What happened to WebSphere? Can it be used for cloud-native reactive microservices with Kafka?

As modern enterprises increasingly adopt cloud-native and serverless architectures, the need for agile and efficient microservices has never been greater. This session will show how WebSphere Liberty InstantOn and Kafka can be used to build cloud-native microservices for event-driven architectures. The instant application startup unlocks greater serverless integration possibilities, including driving event-based workloads through Knative into an application mesh. Explore how these capabilities translate to cost savings and reduction of legacy WebSphere technical debt.
