Ever wanted a single app that check you into any airline or an app that could aggregate healthcare data from multiple doctors and insurance companies? Apigee’s new API Exchange aims to make those apps possible.
As the development of a digital economy based on application programming interfaces continues to gain momentum, organizations are running into issues relating to scale that are slowing the growth of the overall API economy.
Looking to give the emerging API economy an additional shot of stimulus, Apigee today opened the Apigee API Exchange, a mechanism through which developers and publishers of APIs can more easily discover and invoke APIs.
As the number of mobile health apps continue to grow, along with public demand for them, one company has found a way to open the pipelines of innovation by eliminating the need for multiple application programming interfaces (APIs).
Apigee, a Palo Alto, Calif.-based API company, announced Thursday the release of the Apigee API Exchange, which it touts as the first API exchange platform to have the ability to power app ecosystems in any industry.
Apigee is a very interesting company - or perhaps we should say it's a very helpful company - especially if you happen to be a developer in need of quickly understanding or getting to know the API set from a variety of Websites. Need a Facebook or Flickr API reference? How about the New York Times? Or maybe Salesforce? No problem!
A revolution is disrupting business: The world is becoming programmable. 180 miles east of Detroit is Blackberry. In 2007, Blackberry was Canada's most valuable company. By 2009, they owned 20 percent of the global smartphone market. Today, Blackberry has less than 5 percent global market share and Apple has 20 percent. Google's Android has an astonishing 70 percent. Where did Blackberry go wrong?
Apigee, an API technology and service provider, has recently been selected by Gracenote, a music and video technology provider, to help it to both develop and enrich its app ecosystem.
While consumer internet companies grab the headlines, the IPO market over the last year tells a different story. Innovative startups are exploiting massively disruptive forces now changing the face of enterprise technology. This time, the shakeup isn’t a periodic upheaval creating a new normal. This time, disruption is the new normal.
As consumers, we don’t see APIs. As business owners or technology companies, we should be more than interested in them, not only in what they do, but who owns them. Many companies are becoming specialized in developing all kinds of these programs to get the right information to the correct database.
