We’re ready to close the year with a feature release for Edge Analytics. Everything you see in this analytics-focused release is a direct result of conversations we’ve had with many of you. This update opens a new chapter in the depth and the flexibility of our analytics capabilities.
Apigee's “2013 Digital Impact Survey” of 1,000 smartphone-owners in the U.S. explored how apps are changing day-to-day behaviors and how consumers expect technological changes on the horizon to affect them. The survey findings indicate that mobile apps have changed and continue to change our everyday lives—from the time we wake up (literally), to our relationships, our well-being, how we shop, how we connect with friends, how we bank, take photos, . . .
Customers are using mobile devices more often for an ever-growing list of tasks, be it searching for information, looking up directions, or buying products. In the digital economy, it’s getting much harder to understand customer behavior, know what they want, and delight them at the right time and on the right device. The solution to tracking and understanding customers across channels lies in APIs.
Enterprises are rapidly adopting APIs, and a majority will use a cloud-based deployment by 2015. With the new "mobile-first" and "API-first" mindset pervading businesses, what does this all mean to information security organizations? How can they enable a business strategy while protecting information exposed to internal and third-party developers via APIs?
The BaaS revolution has mainly targeted mobile developers, and for good reason. A mobile developer’s skills typically don’t overlap those required for building and maintaining server-side infrastructure. The same isn’t true for web app developers. They live and breathe on the server. So why is a BaaS a good solution for web apps? The answer is simple: time and money.
A cause of concern when establishing partner and open APIs often lies in the notion of exposing corporate data to an ecosystem of developers outside the enterprise. But the risks that crop up from not building a digital products portfolio are significant.
