Thanks to all who participated in the Webinar: Visibility at the Edge - Deep Insights from your API. In the last post, I talked about what we mean by visibilty at the edge of your business and the concept of 360 degrees of visibility. This time, I'll talk about the data that gets you the 360 degree view.
Thanks to all who participated in last week's Webinar: Visibility at the Edge - Deep Insights from your API. As promised on the Webinar, we'll write out some of the Q&A we got into in the live session. We'll start with what we mean by visibility at the edge and why we think it's important.
Thanks to all who participated in last week's strategy webinar: Visibility at the Edge - Deep Insights from your API. Thanks to our speakers @jhingran and @brianpagano. Here are the slides and video. Also, check out our follow-up posts this week in which our speakers further explore the topics of this Webinar hour.
I sat down with Brian Gracely (@bgracely) and Christian Reilly (@reillyusa) of Bechtel recently to talk about the evolving API and app economy. We had a terrific discussion about the adoption of mobile devices and how open access to data is unlocking tremendous new business value.
In my recent Data Analytics & APIs post, I talked about analytics as a peer to your API, and using analytics to gain insights to drive success of your API strategy. An API strategy quickly gets an enterprise to a place where they have big data sets. As defined by Wikipedia, "Big Data consists of datasets that grow so large that they become awkward to work with using on-hand database management tools." No question that Big Data comes with big opportunity for valuable insights but also with challenges and questions about data storage, how to effectively manage the growth of data sets, methods for understanding data analytics and gleaning the most valuable insights from it.
There's an explosion of developers building mobile and web apps. There's also an explosion in APIs as enterprises adopt API strategies to open up access to their back-end systems to enable developers. As a result, more transactions flow from end users and developers to enterprises increasing reach, revenue, and profit for enterprises.
In this short video, I talk about how to think about analytics as a peer of your APIs and the role analytics plays in having your API strategy succeed.
