Developers, Developers, Developers Why API Management Should be Important to You Featuring Red Monk

472

Published on

Overview
APIs are the glue that binds today’s Web. APIs make it possible to transform a simple enterprise Web site into a true integration platform. They create conduits that allow mobile devices to access critical enterprise applications and data. They enable effective use of the Cloud and they represent the best technology for agile partner integration.

However, it is a mistake to assume that if you build some APIs, the developers will come (and the applications will appear). To maximize the benefits of your APIs, you have to reach out, engage developers and build a developer community. This webinar explores key issues around API management and developer outreach.
