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.

Reigning in cloud fragmentation represents a multi-billion dollar opportunity for API management providers. But with the competition heating up, the fight for relevance is moving beyond abstracting programming interfaces. That’s the reason API management providerApigee forayed into Big Data earlier this year with Apigee Insights, a Big Data offering that Apigee’s hoping to round out through their newly announced acquisition this week ofInsightsOne.
Predictive analytics startup InsightsOne has managed to see which customers of a health insurer will be unhappy weeks before they voice their complaints. That’s exactly the sort of smarts that attracted application programminginterface (APIs) management and analytics company Apigee to buy InsightsOne.
The application programming interface (API) management guru Apigee announced Wednesday that it is moving deeper into the network by acquiring the predictive analytics vendor InsightsOne.
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.
If you're like most Americans, apps play an increasingly important role in your life. Those mini-programs embedded in your smartphone might help you track spending, count calories, monitor daily exercise, transfer funds and so much more. Pretty useful stuff – but are we becoming dangerously dependent on them?
