It’s not correct to say that businesses operate “in the cloud.” Rather, they can operate in as many as half a dozen clouds because of the proliferation of applications and SaaS providers. It presents quite a challenge to unify these very disparate systems and get them to work in a unified fashion, but in order to achieve digital transformation, developers have to ensure that all systems within an enterprise are integrated.

Messaging is used to help organizations provide reliable, zero message loss environments, to decouple applications, enable scale, and to unlock data for broader distribution.  It’s a critical pattern for most enterprise architectures.  In healthcare, for example, a messaging pattern might be used to create a buffer between the electronic medical records system and any number of consuming applications who need to know when a patient record has been updated.  Or in retail, a messaging pattern might be used to ensure a customer can have a seamless experience as they modify their shopping cart across, in-store, web, and mobile channels.

Data Gateway - Out of the box

But let’s say what Data Gateway offers out-of-the-box is not a perfect fit for what you want to do. Maybe you want to create an OData API for a different datasource, expose a legacy API as an OData API or do data orchestration before exposing data into Salesforce. So what do you do?
