Apigee Edge now supports Node.js and has open sourced Volos, a project containing a set of API management modules.
Apigee has recently added support for Node.js and NPM modules which can be used for building new APIs, back-ends for mobile applications, mashups and composite services. We have interviewed Greg Brail, Chief Architect at Apigee, in order to find out more about what developers can do with Node.js on the Apigee platform.
The role of the Chief Digital Officer (CDO) is a hot topic — and a new report from the Apigee Institute identifies seven effective habits CDOs should have.
The report, “Three Keys to Successful Digital Transformation,” surveyed more than 300 executives in firms with at least a half billion dollars in annual revenue.
If you are seeking to shake up your company’s analog existence and become a digital enterprise, take a look at how the leading visionaries are doing it. The Apigee Institute recently scrutinized the management patterns of 300 executives in companies with more than $500 million in annual revenues.
If you've been in the tech industry a long time you know that some industry conferences have that special 'vibe' and some don't. Netscape's early developer conferences had that vibe and helped drive the emergence of the web. I felt that same vibe at work yesterday at Apigee's I (heart) APIs conference at San Francisco's Fort Mason Center. For those folks not able to attend this Sold Out even, here are 4 take aways.
The API economy is only going to be as strong as the quality of the APIs that enable it. Unfortunately, not all APIs are created equal in terms of quality, which collectively tends to act like a drag on the API economy.Looking to foster the development of higher quality APIs, Apigee today at its user conference unveiled an open source project, dubbed Volos, that provides a set of modules based on the Node.js development framework that Apigee recently announced it would support.
Recently ProgrammableWeb reported that Apigee now supports Node.js which allows developers to build highly customized APIs and apps using the Apigee API Platform. Apigee has just announced the launch of Apigee Learn, a free education program that offers a series of eight-week online courses presented in video format. The Apigee-specific courses will cover topics and skills that will help participants succeed in today’s API and App economies.
The model for business intelligence is rapidly changing from hub and spoke to that of a data supply chain, as I pointed out in “Why Building A Distributed Data Supply Chain Is More Important Than Big Data”. More data, more apps, more forms of analytics will all put stress on the centralized model of the enterprise data warehouse and gradually create many different nodes for storing and processing data, all of which communicate with each other.
As more business incline to mobile, cloud and web for commerce, APIs allow a variety of devices to access the same power source and use it for any number of purposes. Apigee, the enterprise-grade API management platform, can be an effective platform that offer plug-and-play configurations on API creation. But these are complex problem that developers can’t build easily.
As more businesses have turned to the Web for commerce, application programming interfaces, or APIs, have grown tremendously in importance. APIs let developers tap into Web services easily, without re-coding their own applications to interact with those services.
API management tools like Apigee Enterprise can be effective platforms to do just that. They offer plug-and-play configurations that makes creating an API creation a GUI-based snap. But you know developers -- the urge to code can be hard to resist. Or there may be a complex problem that an API manager can't build easily.
