A recent update to our API Platform includes a new set of dashboards to help customers manage and optimize their API programs. The dashboards were rewritten from the ground up and provide increased speed, more actionable data, and deeper insights into API programs.
The topic for today is the art of knowing the known unknowns - applied to enterprise analytics, not war! After all, we are here to create value, not destroy it. Quite simply, known unknowns are enterprise metrics that we know are important, but we just do not know what their value is at any given moment in time. In other words, Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)!

In our Digital Gold Rush blog series, we’re on a quest as digital cartographers to map out the different business models for monetizing digital assets. So far we’ve identified 2 business models for monetizing APIs: the revenue share model and the fee-based model.
The third business model is freemium. Freemium models can be based on a variety of factors such as volume, time, or some combination; they can be implemented as standalone or hybrid models (in conjunction with the rev share or fee-based models we’ve already discussed).
Enterprises are drawing on the tools of the digital trade -- APIs, data, and apps -- in what is amounting to a gold rush in the new digital world. A treasure map of how these tools can be used to transform digital assets into revenue streams is critical to navigating this uncharted world and discovering gold. In our Digital Gold Rush blog series, we're charting out out the different business models for monetizing digital products; last time we discussed the revenue share model. This time we're discussing fee-based models.
Persistence services and caching are essential for optimizing for performance, building business logic, and scaling APIs to serve more traffic than a back-end service could otherwise support. One of the important factors of building a full-service API layer is to have access to different kinds of persistence services.
The Apigee API Platform offers several flavors of persistence and provides an API and a GUI for self-service management of the cache. Caching solutions that support different usecases include: Cache, Response Cache, Key Value Map, and App Services.
An Executive Order by the Obama Administration in May 2013 required that, going forward, data generated by the government be made available in open, machine-readable formats, while appropriately safeguarding privacy, confidentiality, and security. With this groundbreaking move, the Obama administration communicated a clear vision for a new digital government and it is embracing Web APIs as the way to make this a reality. Digital government will shift how government connects with, and provides services to, the American people.
