ObjectivesWhat you learn

After attending this workshop students will be able to learn how to connect from on-premises systems to a cloud environment taking advantage of IBM Bluemix's hybrid cloud capabilities.
IBM Hybrid Integration Services is a set of hybrid cloud capabilities in IBM Bluemix that allows businesses to innovate rapidly while, at the same time, providing IT control and visibility. It allows customers to quickly and easily build and operate systems that mix data and APIs from a wide variety of sources - whether they reside on-prem or in the cloud.   In many cases, you will want to expose your IT assets from your private cloud as APIs  and at the same time have  best overall manageability and control   of who uses your assets and how.
Bluemix provides a set of services such as Secure Gateway, API Management, Connect and Compose, Dataworks, Message Hub, Event Hub which enable Hybrid Cloud Integration capabilities.  This IBM Redbooks®workshop teaches how to develop cloud solutions using these Hybrid Integration Services that help you maintain data consistency, manageability and security for critical transactions.
