Paper Presents a Technical Guide to Using WSO2 API Manager for Enabling APIs That Are Easy to Access and Consume, Secure, Managed, Monitored and Monetized Palo Alto, CA – November 13, 2012 – Increasingly, managed APIs are at the forefront of enterprise business strategy as a means of extending information and processes to customers, partners and other groups within the organization. Many traditional service-oriented architecture (SOA) and integration platforms provide some level of API management functionality, but IT organizations still have to add third-party products to implement a complete solution. WSO2 has published a new technical white paper that examines how the WSO2 API Manager addresses enterprises’ API management demands with a complete offering that includes a portal, gateway, key issuing and validation, analytics, and monitoring. The new WSO2 white paper, “WSO2 and API Management – A Technical Evaluation Guide,” is designed for developers, architects, and systems administrators, who wish to learn more about APIs that are advertised and available, secure, managed, monitored and monetized. It provides a technical introduction to WSO2 API Manager and additional components of the award-winning WSO2 Carbon middleware platform, examining how key features and core capabilities address the entire API lifecycle. Additionally, the paper highlights how WSO2’s API management functionality is based on proven technology that is powering Fortune 500 companies.
