Rounding Up Gartner’s AADI Summit – Part I: APIs in the “Nexus of IT”

Last week was a good one for APIs in Las Vegas. Gartner brought together the enterprise architecture and integration crowd for its annual Application Architecture Delivery & Integration Summit.  The annual show focused on corporate app development and the integration/API/SOA space is something central to the mobility challenges of today’s enterprise.  What I've always liked about Gartner events is that they are mostly about hearing analyst perspectives on pertinent business and IT issues, and then highlighting useful case studies of practitioners.  It's not vendor heavy.

Gartner’s Top 10 Tech Trends For 2013

As business value continues to move toward data and its associated uses in 2013 – technology is following.  Here are Gartner's “Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2013,” are you ready?

Increasing the visibility of API value with reporting done right

There's a paradox out there -- the more innovative and diverse the myriad of employee-owned devices and digital channels a company uses to scale, the less insight that company has into how these new business avenues contribute to business value.  As we near the end of the year, the advent of measurable business objectives, metrics and reports hang in the not-so-far future.

On to the Cloud – Next Wave of Enterprises are Entering the Cloud

Talk of the cloud has been around for several years now.  Up to know, however, the majority of cloud usage has come from “transformational companies” (11% of companies accounted for 44% of cloud adoption in 2010).  This is beginning to change, however. 

The API Revenue Stream

At Mashery we are very interested in the business of APIs (if you missed our Business of APIs conference earlier this fall, you should check out some videos of the sessions).  We love to talk about the benefits APIs bring to businesses all across different verticals.  From growing your brand awareness to internal development of new apps/products, APIs can make your business function better, faster and more efficiently.

Mashery and Coca-Cola Enterprises Explain Enterprise API Management

For those of you who are fortunate to be in Las Vegas this week at Gartner's Application Architecture Delivery and Integration (AADI) Summit, you may have heard the news, as word of what CIOs want is starting to filter into conversations. Some key things we hear are that mobile, cloud, social and information analytics are more important than ever.

Hack Grads: Hacks that Graduated from Weekend Hackathon to App Store

The Mashery Developer Outreach team is always heading out to hackathons and tech events. They have gone to over 60 in 2012 and the year isn’t over yet. We love to see what developers are capable of building in a weekend, or even a day!

Projects at these events are typically are limited in scope. Team building, education and fun are what draws hackers to attend.

While we’re often blown away with the quality of these hacks, once the event has come to a close, teams usually walk away having forged new bonds and new brain cells, but not necessarily the next big startup. 

Is Cyber Monday so 2005?

About 122 million Americans are expected to shop online today, otherwise known as Cyber Monday, according to, the digital division of The National Retail Federation, which coined the phrase in 2005.
