A couple of weeks ago, Red Hat celebrated its 2020 summit. The summit is one of the most important events in the IT industry and Syndesis (through its product branded by Red Hat, Fuse Online) was there too! One of the most recurrent pattern we’ve observed during different sessions was about the usage of changes happening on an application data layer. Those changes are streamed to a topic and provided as event to be consumed by integrations.
Customization is a key factor in any successful software product. Even more for an integration platform whose goal is to make heterogeneous external systems communicate between them. Syndesis is a flexible integration platform and takes this aspect seriously providing an Extension mechanism by design. We also know that once the platform is up and running, it is desirable to have an easy way to install a customization with no need to involve IT in upgrade procedures.
It has been a long hard way, but we have just released Syndesis 1.9.0! This version includes many new features since latest 1.8.13 release. We have now new connectors for Kafka, Debezium, Amazon DDB and many others. It also contains several bug fixes, upgrades of dependencies and uses a newer Camel version (2.23). We encourage everyone to update their Syndesis installations to this new version. Let us know what are the new features you enjoy most!
One of the most important reason why we are developing an IPAAS is to make citizen integrators life simpler. This persona must be able to quickly create integrations by composing heterogeneous sources of data. One of the typical gap that she finds is to be aware of which are those sources available. The expected scenario is to know before-hand the host names of databases, queues, REST endpoints… Datasource dashboard What if this information is automatically discovered by the platform?
MongoDB connector was first introduced in Syndesis 1.8 as tech preview feature. We’ve worked hard during the development of version 1.9 and have it now as a general available feature! Document-oriented databases have become extremely popular in the last years becoming one of the most important NO SQL choice out there. Without any doubt, MongoDB is the most prominent solution in this space. The easiest way to learn about this connector is to play around with the MongoDB Quickstart.
There will be a new community meeting of Syndesis the 29th of January, at 13:00 UTC. We will meet through Google Hangouts on this room.

Syndesis is an open Source Integration Platform As A Service (IPaaS), on premise or in the cloud, with no coding required. A business analyst can set up their own Twitter to Salesforce campaign and deploy the integration in a container on OpenShift. The easiest way to try Syndesis is to use a trial of the product called Fuse Online.
