Full Description:


The Digital domain is a front-end layer supporting client applications like Web, Mobile and Cockpits interacting with backend systems through a Backend For Front End (BFF) integration layer.

* The BFF exposes loosely coupled and collaborating µServices as logical components related to specific functional areas or application needs. The µServices mainly execute business logic, exchange messages with other backend systems and apply API composition and caching principles. µServices respect the request/response pattern and expose REST and GraphQL endpoints through HTTP

* The backend systems expose, synchronously and asynchronously, CRUD operations on their entities through an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) exposing HTTP SOAP and JMS SOA Services and through APIs (SOAP, REST and GraphQL) exposed on an API manager in a secured way (HTTPS).

* By identifying and analyzing the organization's purpose, structure, business processes and areas of expertise, our client has stabilized their backend systems by creating business capabilities regrouping backends per functional area organized into a multi-level hierarchy.

* We use an Enterprise Data Model (EDM) as an integrated view of the data produced and consumed across the entire organization (all data exposed by business capabilities respect this data model). It represents a single integrated definition of data, unbiased of any system or application that unites, formalizes and represents the things important to an organization, as well as the rules governing them.
