Driving down Highway 1 on the Big Sur coastline in Northern California, it’s easy to miss the signs that dot the roadside. After all, the stunning views of the Pacific crashing against the rocks can be a major distraction. The signage along this windy, treacherous stretch of road, however, is pretty important -- neglecting to slow down to 15 MPH for that upcoming hairpin turn could spell trouble.Careful planning and even science goes into figuring out where to place signs, whether they are for safety, navigation, or convenience. It takes a detailed understanding of the conditions and the driving experience to determine this. To help drivers plan, manage, and correct their journey trajectories, interstate highway signs follow a strict pattern in shape, color, size, location, and height, depending on the type of information being displayed.

An enterprise can have the best, most agile, scalable and capable IT system in the world, but if an end user can't access or utilize the functionality as needed, it's all for naught. Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was right about a lot of things, but the most important one is that IT has to be as simple as possible to use. But what is an application? For the consumer, the term "app" may bring to mind Angry Birds, Snapchat or Instagram, but apps are equally integral to the development and use of enterprise IT. An app could serve a CRM function internally, a customer portal, or even a machine-to-machine back end. In fact, there are many lessons we've learned in today's app economy that are relevant to the way IT works—whether the app addresses employees, partners, or customers. This slide show—based on eWEEK reporting and industry information from API provider Apigee—discusses how to bring the app economy to your company to improve functionality and efficiency.

The convergence of big data analytics and the API economy has been prognosticated for a while. Now Apigee wants to turn that prediction into reality. With the acquisition today of InsightsOne, the provider of API integration and management tools is moving to tightly couple predictive big data analytics software with applications looking to invoke analytics via an API. Instead of building predictive analytics capabilities from the ground up, Apigee CEO Chet Kapoor envisions a world where developers apply analytics to any number of processes via an API.
