Building Multiple Legacy Transactions into a Single API
The OpenLegacy platform builds multiple transactions, screens, or even systems into a single API. This combination allows users to build Smart System APIs instead of low-level APIs that then need to be combined to build anything useful. Tibco requires building low-level system APIs first. These low-level APIs support only a single mainframe transaction or screen. The low-level system APIs waste time and resources since they require a rigorous testing process during deployment. Furthermore, hosting the additional APIs takes up valuable core resources. At run-time, queueing data just to pass among APIs wastes run-time resources as well. A much better way to develop APIs is to build them based on a business need or purpose.
