Aino.io is an integration monitoring and analyzing tool that works seamlessly with WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus. In fact, the very first integrations monitored with Aino.io were implemented on WSO2 ESB. In this article, we will present some of the key benefits of monitoring WSO2 ESB integrations with Aino.io.
Monitor every integration on any platform with one tool
In a perfect world, WSO2 ESB might be all you need to implement integrations. Unfortunately, this is usually not the case. If you happen to be working in an environment where all integrations are not built on the WSO2 platform, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Aino.io can monitor and analyze all your integrations regardless of the underlying technologies or types of architectures.
One of the benefits of having a platform independent monitoring tool is that you get the full value of it in every step of the way. For example, let’s assume that you are migrating old integrations one-by-one from a legacy platform to WSO2 ESB. With Aino.io you can monitor every transaction before, during, and after the transition. This helps in maintaining quality and making sure everything works as intended.
Increased transparency helps to build quality in during development
Understanding the big picture is really important when developing integrations. Every integration architect and developer should know what they are developing and where it fits in the grand scheme of things. Afterall, integrations are the backbone of modern business, and as such they can either help to make the business flexible or cause unnecessary rigidness.
Getting the big picture is not always trivial even with great platforms like WSO2. The usual monitoring solutions are quite low-level. You can get detailed information on the integration sequences, but it is hard to form a comprehensive picture of whole processes from such minute technical details. On the other hand, modeling and documenting tools help to draw the big picture, but they require a lot of manual work. A sensible level of transparency is needed with the least effort possible.
Aino.io solves this problem by analyzing transaction-level information from live integrations to form a higher-level picture. The transactions are grouped into business-level operations, and statistics are automatically calculated for every application and the integration operations between them. This way you get a constantly updated view of all the integrations straight from the source without any manual steps.
There is no additional steps to developing integrations with Aino.io. You just log the successfull and failed transactions into Aino.io as you would log them into your production log. As soon as you connect Aino.io monitoring to your WSO2 ESB integrations, you will start seeing how everything fits together, what are the relationships and dependencies of the integrated applications and which business operations they take part in.
Take control of digital processes to ultimately improve customer experience
At first it may sound quite far fetched, but in today’s business, a poorly running digital business process may seriously deteriorate the customer’s experience of a service. You don’t have to be in a digital business to have a lot of digitalized processes. Unfortunately, a lot of those processes are running inside “black boxes” that really don’t have the necessary transparency to be monitored effectively.
With integration monitoring tools such as Aino.io, you can catch the faults and glitches early on, even before the customer notices that something went wrong. To get to this level of monitoring, the tool has to be as automated and fast as the processes it monitors. This is why we developed automatic monitoring capabilities in Aino.io, which can be set up to sound alarms and send notifications when anything unexpected happens.
Sometimes it is a good idea to create self-monitoring integration sequences in ESB, but the most efficient way of implementing integration monitoring is by using a tool like Aino.io. With Aino.io you can set up basic monitoring quickly and easily, and add alerting logic when you already get all the information needed from the live integrations.
