Layer7 API Management

Business Constraints.....Addressed

By Bill Oakes, CISSP posted 08-24-2018 06:05 PM


As I mentioned last week, APIs are the glue that ties applications to back end services.  But let's step back and talk about those apps.  As business modernize their application architecture, app dev teams learn a few hard constraints exist:

  • in this modern world, changing business needs require rapid development and scaling of services
  • repetitive app development and maintenance tasks are error-prone and time-consuming, adding to project costs
  • advanced database and integration skills are scarce and expensive
  • coders don't want to code security into their applications

Declarative business rules, agile development, and elastic scalability with built-in RBAC can easily address these constraints - and CA Live API Creator is a fantastic tool for dev teams to utilize as they go through the modernization of their architecture.  


What that in mind, I'd like to remind you about an upcoming webinar on August 29th, at 9am pst (noon eastern) discussing CA Live API Creator 5.0, where you'll see Renu Motwani, Product Manager, and her team build a working system from scratch in 20 minutes, as well as a peek at the brand new v5.0.  Click here to register - I hope to see you there!
