Devices/Things are having capabilities to offer. For these capabilities to be useful, having a programmatic way of accessing these capabilities is a must . APIs are the fundamental block that allow these capabilities to be offered in a programmer friendly manner.

However having naked API can expose the device to an unprecedented traffic or access. This is where having a managed API to the device would come in handy. Managed APIs would also allow throttling capabilities. So accessing a device beyond its processing capabilities can be controlled. A managed API can also expose statistics about how a device is being accessed. Managing subscription is the next challenging task as devices can come in large numbers.

In this webinar Sumedha Rubasinghe, director of API architecture at WSO2 will further discuss how API Management can help having more managed Internet of Things.

Topics covered include

  • How API management can help IoT
  • The problems faced by not having efficient API
