WEBINAR: The Forrester Wave: API Management Platforms, Q1 2013: An Emerging Market Worthy Of First Contact

March 12, 2013


Enterprise architects, development managers, and security pros from every sector have been asking us: When we open a channel for leveraging corporate assets in new ways, how do we ensure that it's secure and monetizable? The answer: open web APIs with solid API management.

API management isn't just a new name for service-oriented architecture (SOA) governance; its prime directive states that it provides a friendly welcome when third-party client app developers beam aboard, a security detail that keeps an eye on these visitors' every move, and monitoring tools to help keep the ship running no matter what happens. API management is an exciting space that app development leaders have only put on their screens as part of next-generation application architecture.

We recently examined the top seven API management platform vendors, and in this webinar we share with you what we learned about the market landscape; the criteria we used to research, analyze, and score the vendors; how they stacked up in our evaluation; and how their solutions match API provider roles and temperaments.


  • Corporate Platforms Put API Management On The BT Leader's Agenda
  • SOA And Open Web API Vendors Converge To Find Solutions
  • Selection Criteria And Evaluated Vendors
  • The Wave™ Evaluation: Who Leads? Who's A Contender?

Vendors mentioned: 3scale, Apigee, IBM, Intel, Layer 7, Mashery, Vordel, and WSO2.
