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.
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?
I wrote just the other day about how the API management world is fundamentally changing -- as large vendors acquire small companies doing API management (witness Intel's acquisition of Mashery and CA Technologies buying Layer 7), the pure API management tools get added into broader offerings -- I opined that identity management and application integration were two areas that would, over time, join with API management as a logical platform. One of the largest independent API vendors, Apigee, is speaking to the broader API opportunity by announcing today that they've acquired predictive analytics startup InsightsOne.
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.
A common refrain being heard across the industry is that APIs are only the latest term for describing work toward 'service oriented architecture.' However, one industry thought-leader says there are important distinctions.
In a new webcast, Ed Anuff, vice president of product strategy at Apigee, discussed the relationship between APIs -- the new breed of RESTful APIs on the scene today -- and SOA.
