Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) allow enterprises to expose their unique data and functionality assets to external developers enabling them to build innovative mobile and web apps. Using these apps, enterprises can engage with their customers in new ways potentially opening up additional sources of revenue. In addition, according to a recent report by Forrester Research, Inc., "APIs create and unlock the business value of data." 1 Companies expose their unique data via APIs that allows mobile app developers to combine it in innovative ways with data from other companies delivering customer value that would otherwise not have been possible.

"With APIs as a new distribution channel, enterprises can reach new markets and audiences for their products and services. Our goal is to help those businesses plan, deploy, launch and manage their API infrastructure successfully." Software AG provides an integrated infrastructure based on its webMethods technology to manage the entire lifecycle of APIs. Enterprise can - Accelerate adoption of APIs by setting up a modern portal for APIs to attract and on-board external developers. App developers can search for APIs they need, read up on the documentation and get notifications on APIs they use. Secure, mediate and monitor traffic between the API consumers and back-end servers. That allows API providers to collect metrics for various reasons such as analytics, KPI dashboards and invoicing/billing. Build the right APIs for the business by managing the entire process of designing, developing, deploying, versioning and retiring APIs.
