SOA Software on Monday announced API Management for the IBM WebSphere DataPower family of SOA appliances. "APIs present a challenge to IT organizations today," said Alistair Farquharson, CTO of SOA Software. "SOA Software's unique approach to API management on DataPower allows IT organizations to keep pace with technology advances presented by next generation mobile and web applications while benefiting from the same rich enterprise support we already offer customers today."
The new solution manages the full lifecycle of DataPower-based APIs and extends the capabilities of the widely deployed SOA Software Integrated Governance Solution for IBM DataPower.
This unified approach to managing both APIs and services extends the capabilities of DataPower infrastructure, enabling mobile and web solutions for internal mainframe and WebSphere MQ based services. SOA Software's API Gateway, Lifecycle Manager for APIs and Community Manager have been integrated with DataPower, providing our customers a seamless API Management solution.
SOA Software's API Management solution for DataPower goes beyond basic API management by offering management of the full API lifecycle. From plan, to build, to run, to share, the API Management solution provides the ability for customers to manage every aspect of both APIs and internal services using a single, comprehensive solution. With this new solution, customers can realize a complete API solution quickly and cost effectively.
The SOA Software API Management solution for DataPower supports a wide variety of API standards including REST, JSON, OAuth and OpenID. It ensures interoperability with diverse backend systems through its support for SOAP and WebSphere MQ. It supports diverse security standards including SAML, Kerberos, LDAP, X509 and WS-Security. DataPower's enterprise integration capabilities for APIs are further strengthened by SOA Software's rich orchestration features, as well as its support for transformations including WebSphere Transformation Extender. Support for monitoring, metrics, service level agreements, and API access control all ensure API programs run consistently and predictably.
The API Management solution for DataPower enables rich communities for DataPower API developers and app developers through its developer portal. The developer portal lets API developers publish their DataPower APIs for app developers to find and consume. Social media features, API documentation, and integrated forums make it easy for developers to collaborate. Real-time system monitoring gives developers up to date status of their APIs and apps.
APIs help organizations expose critical internal business data to their customers to increase transparency and improve the customer experience. SOA Software's API Management solution for DataPower lets DataPower customers use DataPower to secure and integrate their APIs within an enterprise environment. The result is a cost effective, full lifecycle solution for DataPower APIs that makes it easy to quickly yet securely expose internal resources to mobile apps and Web applications.
