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.
With media reports of hacker incidences, stolen credit card numbers, and identity theft, consumers are understandably concerned about information security. We want absolute assurance from businesses that our credit card numbers and other personal information is secure. Payment Card Industry’s Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) defines the standard for securing cardholder data, wherever it is located. Apigee recently completed an annual audit and PCI recertification verifying that we continue to meet the Credit Card industry requirements for information security.
In this video we examine a simple use case and demonstrate how to use the Apigee Platform to expose a standard SAP backend and convert a JSON request into a SOAP SAP back-end request. You will see that in a matter of minutes, with no coding and taking advantage of capabilities like XSLT, you can make it possible for mobile apps to consume services from an ERP backend system.
In this video we take a look at a simple use case demonstrating how easily Apigee enables a transformation that can typically be a complex example in a Telco environment - A Telco XML/SOAP style backend (ParlayX) converted to the GSMA OneAPI. This enables carriers to create their own location or messaging APIs on top of an existing backend without having to go into the middleware layer meaning faster time to market for new services and avoids introducing instability in an operational network.
Portability, usability, and quality converge to define how well the processing power of the Big Data platform can be harnessed.
When talking about Big Data, most people talk about numbers: speed of processing and how many terabytes and petabytes the platform can handle. But deriving deep insights with the potential to change business growth trajectories relies not just on quantities, processing power and speed, but also three key ilities: portability, usability and quality of the data.
Can you or partners quickly prototype a new app or script that uses Cloud APIs? What if they already have code for a different Cloud provider’s APIs? Companies want to expose cloud service with security, control and visibility, but also find the need to expose existing cloud service using alternative API flavors.
In this video Jeff Smith describes Apigee's API Platform, how it's used to expose cloud services, making consumable APIs that appeal to customers and partners and make it easy for them to migrate to a company's cloud service.
