Microservices from hybris and Acquia
Acquia and hybris, an SAP company, have partnered to transform how companies improve the way they engage with digital consumers. In a move away from legacy “software as a product” and in collaboration with Acquia, hybris has developed cloud-based microservices that will allow businesses to deliver digital experiences as easily as a smartphone user might download apps to a personal device.
Launched by hybris, the “platform for life” is based on a microservices approach that is delivered through hybris YaaS (hybris business platform as a service). The new approach enables independent developers to sell their solutions directly to organizations, alongside the established major service providers on the market.
The YaaS platform is said to bridge the gap in the overlap between software as a service (SaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS). YaaS offers the market a microservice architecture upon which to develop an ecosystem of SaaS applications and services, creating a marketplace that includes SAP, hybris, third-party and competitor applications.
