One year ago at Mobile World Congress 2013, the GSMA announced the OneAPI Exchange powered by Apigee, a new model for API interoperability. At this year’s Mobile World Congress, which kicks off today in Barcelona, we are proud that the power of a OneAPI Exchange app can be seen in production through the new mobile identity validation feature in the NFC Badge application.
As customers move between the web, mobile devices, and sensors in the IoT, APIs are critical to your enterprise and your IT organization. A challenge for IT organizations is securely exposing functionality to be consumed by developers and partners, some who you don't yet know. At Apigee, we’ve built deep expertise and understanding of IT security strategies and we are pleased to announce that Robert (Bob) Lentz, the former Chief Information Assurance Officer (CIAO) for the U.S. Department of Defense, has joined the Apigee advisory board.
It’s imperative for enterprises to deliver security built into the API channel. It has to protect the whole digital supply chain, end-to-end, from apps to APIs to backend services. In recognition of this, Apigee recently took two decisive steps to extend and strengthen our already strong security expertise and security operations team: we hired Subra Kumaraswamy and Tim Mather.
The killer app of big data is predictive analytics, which gives businesses the ability to anticipate and predict consumer behavior, and then immediately adapt. Today Apigee welcomes the InsightsOne team, and in so doing doubles down on big data predictive analytics and our ability to help enterprises understand consumer preferences, enhance the customer experience, and optimize business processes.
After a year that brought dozens of dates and thousands of attendees to our popular “Build your First Mobile App” training series, we’re happy to kick off 2014 with brand new content, built from your feedback, requests and the use-cases we have been powering for our customers. As usual, these trainings are 100% free (and all the software we use is free/open-source as well).
You can attend our new classes live for free, at the Kona Kai resort in San Diego Jan 7, 8 or 9 and start the year by building your first app, a high-performance app, or a great API! Check out this preview of the new content . . .
