Perhaps information security practitioners believe there’s more hype than reality in big data analysis, but, for whatever reason, they have largely tended to focus on log files generated by security sensors (devices or applications that collect and report on threats in near-real time). They’ve all but ignored non-security or operational sources of data. This is particularly true of API data. And this omission is a mistake.
This blog post marks the first of a series of periodical observations about industry patterns and trends, distilled from customer discussions in the field.
At the end of 2013, I visited a number of customers across the U.S. and Europe who had recently launched or were on the verge of launching production traffic on some new APIs. Some common patterns have emerged across these implementations.
The recent negative publicity for Snapchat's API is a real-life demonstration of what can go wrong when a few important things are overlooked. This episode offers an opportunity to remind ourselves about some aspects of security that API teams often overlook.
The December 2013 product update to Edge Analytics includes many exciting new features. There’s one that we’d like to highlight to help you understand its power and usefulness: report packs, which are collections of extensible custom reports pre-built by Apigee, based on industry best practices, and organized around common themes.
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.
Success in the digital world isn't just about enabling access through APIs; it also requires an industrialized model to deliver APIs at the speed and scale needed to capture new opportunities. API industrialization describes a set of technologies for publishing APIs with the efficiency, agility, and scale needed to compete in the digital world.
In this webcast, Accenture's Teresa Tung and Apigee's Brian Pagano discuss a maturity model that helps you understand where you are in your API journey and explore the considerations and steps to move beyond API enablement to an industrial-strength API strategy.
