Vordel Delivers Enterprise API Management White Paper
Information on How to Choose Reference Architectures for the Delivery of Enterprise APIs for Web and Mobile
Dublin, Ireland - May 29, 2012 - Vordel, a provider of Application Gateways for Cloud, Mobile and SOA computing, today announced the availability of a white paper examining the various drivers influencing the management of enterprise Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). The white paper will enable enterprise architects to assess their various API options, examine API integration requirements and understand best-practice reference architectures. Furthermore, building an enterprise class API management platform involves adding new technology parts to existing business application infrastructure.
Vordel's Enterprise API Management white paper examines API management basics as they apply to both consumer and enterprise APIs and draws important distinctions between these types of APIs but also reviews and analyses the various reference architecture options for API delivery. As API adoption grows, commercial and federal organizations are being tasked with delivering "enterprise APIs" that transmit sensitive information or execute business transactions. The secured and scalable delivery of enterprise APIs requires advanced security, integration and runtime middleware in contrast to the more open, consumer-oriented APIs.
"Today's consumer and business users demand access to applications and data from multiple devices, inside and outside of enterprise, on a 24x7x365 basis," said Hugh Carroll, VP Marketing, Vordel. "This trend means users interact with enterprises through many different interfaces and those interfaces all converge at the API layer. A flexible and powerful API management platform is critical as it creates differentiation and enables businesses to compete in the growing API Economy."
This white paper examines the different drivers of enterprise API management and recommends three reference architectures that best fit common API management use cases. It is particularly relevant for enterprise architects or persons with similar responsibilities seeking to understand the API management technology landscape, and involved in the development of API management strategy and reference architecture.
