APIs A State of the Union

APIs are more important than ever
We continue to see huge growth in API
adoption
For many startups and disrupters, APIs
are the very core of their product
For most other organizations, APIs are the
leading edge of innovation
And even things are controlled by APIs
these days
And this has triggered a wave of
investment and consolidation
Within this growth we start to see
technology segmentation…
Naturally leading to buyer
segmentation…
Affinity Segmentation…
Delivery Segmentation…
Yet, we can realize these
diverse requirements via
a single product
API Management Platforms
So what can we expect from the future of
APIs?

  • The enterprise is remaking itself into a platform that developers can experiment and innovate on. Every IT layer from data to application to infrastructure to network is becoming service enabled and software defined through APIs. This will usher in a new period of innovation as developers both inside and outside the enterprise gain access to the core building blocks that define an organization. This will speed experimentation and speed innovation as they construct new mashups leveraging the full range of software defined assets. 
  • Data powers the cloud, mobile, IoT and analysis. Unlocking the value of data will depend on effectively being able to extract the data form diverse data sources, cleansing it, processing it and distributing it to the applications and users where it can find it's greatest value. APIs are pipes that can connect Internet distributed sources with processing intermediaries and end applications.
  • APIs will become the universal abstraction layer separating legacy backend databases, applications and IT services from the growing number of app consumer technologies likeWeb, cloud, mobile. APIs will be in the middle and it a new class of API middleware will emerge to enable, secure, integrate and orchestrate API centered systems and clients together
