With all the emphasis these days that’s placed on combing through the piles of potentially invaluable data that resides within an enterprise, it’s possible for a business to lose sight of the need to turn the discoveries generated by data analysis into valuable actions. Sure, insights and observations that arise from data analysis are interesting and compelling, but they really aren’t worth much unless they can be converted into some kind of business value, whether it’s, say, fine tuning the experience of customers who are considering abandoning your product or service, or modeling an abuse detection system to block traffic from malicious users.
It's a wrap for I ♥ APIs 2013. Huge thanks to each and every one of the over 800 attendees who attended and helped make I ♥ APIs, Apigee’s first user and industry conference, a resounding success this week! Under clear blue skies and with amazing views of the Golden Gate, Alcatraz and Angel Island out of every window, we got to see how every industry is touched by digital. A panel of great CDOs kicked it all off in inspiring fashion on Tuesday describing how every business is a digital business and how Chief Digital Officers (whether they have CDO as title on their business card or not) are leading enterprise innovation and transforming physical value networks with digital value networks . . .
Great APIs are designed to be easy for developers to adopt and to consume. As APIs become the foundation of the new digital world – connecting the apps we use everyday to the data and services that power them – developers are on a quest for high-quality APIs that are built for a mobile world. The best APIs are easy-to-use, intuitive, secure, flexible and lay the infrastructure for new sources of revenue.
Volos is a set of software modules that make it possible for developers to add the common design patterns of great APIs – important functionality like security and traffic management – to their code.

API programs have become commonplace at nearly all big retailers who offer multi-channel experiences to their customers through mobile apps, in-store kiosks, the Web, and personalized in-store services, among other things.

I ♥ APIs, Apigee’s first user and industry conference, kicks off next week in San Francisco. Among the countless reasons to attend is an opportunity to see the digital world come to life in our unique, hands on "Internet of Things" exhibit.
In this customer-driven world, more and more businesses rely on data to derive deep insights about the behavior and experience of end users with a business’ products. Yet end-user logs, while interesting, often lack a 360-degree view of the “context” in which users consume a business’ products and services. The ability to analyze these logs in the relevant context is key to getting the maximum business value from big data analysis.
