All organizations require an API management strategy

There has been a flurry of recent acquisitions in the API Management space, beginning with Axway’s acquisition of Vordel, at the end of 2012. More recently, Computer Associates acquired Layer 7, Intel acquired Mashery, and Mulesoft acquired ProgrammableWeb.

Additionally, another API vendor, 3scale received significant funding. As CTO and Co-Founder of Vordel, now part of Axway, I believe this activity is indicative of a maturing market where APIs are now seen as critical for the Enterprise and no longer the preserve of consumer oriented services such as Facebook and Twitter.

The Internet of Things (IoT) isn’t a new term. Businesses are getting more comfortable with connecting Internet-enabled devices up to a network in order to intelligently share and analyse the data captured. In fact, by 2020, Cisco predicts that a whopping 37 billion intelligent things will be connected to the Internet. What is new however, is the application of the IoT. Take the automotive sector for example. This industry is making great strides in the IoT space, and recently, we’ve seen the use and associated threats of the connected car hit the headlines.
