Wireless operators expose their application programming interfaces (APIs) to developers to make services richer, more tightly integrated and robust, but they really do it for another important reason: to make money off their assets.
To date, the monetization part has been tricky despite huge growth projections thanks in large part to transaction-based billing systems that weren't built for an app world. API company Apigee is hoping to help with a new platform it says will let operators monetize their APIs without ripping out their legacy billing systems.
Apigee is announcing the launch of its Enterprise Monetization Services today, a complete end-to-end solution for companies seeking to monetize their APIs and other digital assets. In this phone interview with Anita Paul, Director of API Products, and Bryan Kirschner, Director of the Apigee Institute, I had a chance to dive deeper into what makes this product a leap ahead of its competitors. The product will be available sometime in August.
While just about everyone agrees that there is something akin to a new economy emerging around application programming interfaces (APIs), finding ways to effectively monetize those APIs has eluded a lot of organizations.
To address that specific issue, Apigee is rolling out today an extension of its API management platform that gives organizations the ability to set terms and conditions around who gets to use what API for how long during a given period.

The drugstore chain builds an open API layer that lets mobile app developers connect to its corporate systems.
Walgreens, the drugstore chain and $71.6 billion retailer, builds an open API layer that lets mobile app developers connect to its corporate systems. For example, Instagram app users can send their photos to Walgreens for printing.
It is time to stop the stampede to create capacity to analyze big data and instead pursue a more balanced approach that focuses on finding more data sets and understanding how to use them to improve your business. The goal should not be to create one big factory that can handle any data set, no matter how big. Instead, we should be seeking to create an extended supply chain that accepts data from a wide variety of sources, both internal and external, processes that data in various nodes of the supply chain, passing data where it is needed, transforming it as it flows, storing key signals and events in central repositories, triggering action immediately when possible, and adding data to a queue for deeper analysis. The era of the massive data warehouse is coming to an end. The era of a distributed data supply chain is just beginning.

In just a few years the shift of the critical mass of computing and consumer activity from PCs toward smartphones and tablets changed the rules of digital competition for every global enterprise. Within the next five years more devices and ubiquitous connectivity will drive a further shift from today’s app economy to a programmable world where software can touch nearly every interaction or transaction.
