API Technology & Operations



In this business brief, we explain why APIs help businesses meet the new expectations of customers, partners, and employees.
This business brief explores internal APIs for business agility, partner APIs for collaboration and business development, and open APIs for breakthrough innovation.
Digital transformation describes how companies are using technology to add a digital dimension to customer or partner experiences, change the way employees do their jobs, or add new lines of business. These kinds of experiences are no longer just conveniences. These five key trends are making digital transformation an imperative for businesses today.
This research report, which is based upon an online survey of 800 IT decision makers at large companies across the globe, the Apigee Institute reveals patterns for success with a key digital business capability: building and deploying apps.
eBook: Beyond ESB Architecture with APIs
Powering interactions via apps requires a new architecture. Companies today seek to leverage the latest forms of mobile and rich-client engagement to build new experiences. In recent years, apps have transformed from the means of content access and data entry to being the primary channels of interaction between a company and its customers and employees.
eBook: APIs and IT Rationalization
These days, technology leaders are asked to do more and move faster. But they usually aren’t given any more budget to meet the demands of a fast evolving, agile, responsive enterprise. Winning in today’s environment requires more intelligent ways to achieve our goals; this, in turn, requires finding ways to remove unnecessary spend from our budgets, and freeing more dollars for innovation.
eBook: APIs are Different than Integration
Many developers and architects see APIs as an evolution and continuation of the integration-based architectures that have long been in use within enterprise IT. However, this is a limited view that misses the larger realization that APIs have become a foundational technology for the development of robust and scalable enterprise applications.
Web API Design
Application developers are the customers of a Web API. Success is measured by how quickly app developers enjoy success using your API in their applications, and rapid adoption of a Web API is all about design. This e-book will help you make design choices from the application developer’s point of view so that the benefits of proven design principles and best practices will make your initiative a success.
Securing the Digital Enterprise
With the explosive growth in API use in every sector, business unit leaders at enterprises that are undergoing digital transformations are calling upon their chief security officers to ensure the security of APIs. Security must be built into the APIs themselves. But that’s not enough. Threat protection, identity services, infrastructure security, and compliance also must be top of mind. This eBook provides a framework to help CSOs consider API security.
OAuth: The Big Picture
OAuth has become standard practice for large social media APIs and it's becoming common across enterprise APIs. OAuth is good for your customers' security and experience making is critical if you want adoption on your API. This e-book will help you understand how OAuth fits with APIs and the emerging world of open platforms, its advantages and challenges, what role it can play for your products, and without having to know the fine details of the protocol.
Governance, Risk, Compliance & APIs
By their nature, APIs are meant to enable transactional business activity without prior restraint, and they are major tools for innovation and experimentation. APIs save organizations money through reuse and consistency.This paper shows how GRC and APIs interact in today’s enterprises. Furthermore, it shows that using an API management platform can streamline governance and compliance.
Are You Where Your Customers Are?
As the main venue of ecommerce moves from websites to mobile devices, retailers see apps as the new channels and means of conversations with partners and customers. If you own a digital or mobility program for retail, this eBook helps you meet the challenges of building a digitally enabled customer experience, digitizing business processes, and creating your own digital business model and roadmap.
Apigee API Platform: Deployment Models
Today we are seeing an explosion of information consumption. Enterprises must reach a growing global audience that has moved beyond the browser to thousands of mobile and social apps on hundreds of connected devices. APIs power this new application and mobile driven economy, and you need an API platform that fits and evolves with your business model. This paper outlines the options for Apigee Enterprise deployment.
Apigee API Exchange
Companies across all industries - including telco, healthcare, financial services, and more - are striving to innovate and create digital ecosystems. At the same time, market fragmentation slows developer adoption and restricts participation in the app economy. Apigee API Exchange delivers API federation and simplifies the development of cross-enterprise APIs in any industry where fragmentation is an issue.
API Façade Pattern
As the API and apps economy continues to evolve, a design problem arises for API designers when internal systems are too complex to expose directly to app developers. The goal of an API Facade Pattern is to make those internal systems accessible to app developers. This e-book examines the API Facade design pattern – what it is, why it's important, and the best practices for crafting one from the perspective of the app developer.
