Modernizing middleware-tier: How to evaluate your web application framework

Middleware-tier is integral for an organization to ensure user requests are processed quickly and securely, connecting users and facilitating the integration of legacy applications with distributed corporate data and applications. In web architecture, it can refer to web servers, application servers, content management systems and other tools that support application development and delivery – and it is integral for an organization to ensure user requests are processed quickly and securely.

It’s the nexus for a distributed multi-tier architecture, enabling the decoupling of the data consumer from the data producer – for example, decoupling a database from applications. It provides access to a wide variety of services, databases, messaging services and connection to external enterprise services like SaaS, Cloud and IoT Event Streaming, which allow enterprises to deploy mission-critical applications in a scalable environment. This scalability occurs in the middle – not in an application and not in a database. What’s more, functionality, flexibility and security are also improved.
