Increasing consumer demand for a seamless digital experience with each application interaction – whether shopping for groceries, ordering meals, buying a car, applying for a loan or getting work done – means businesses must ensure that every component of their application – third-party or otherwise – runs smoothly.

“To accelerate application development lifecycles, businesses are adopting cloud-native technologies, microservices and containerized components on a large scale while leveraging an extensive web of traditional components, third-party services and application programming interfaces,” Cisco noted.
