Oracle's API Management Portfolio Aims for Digital Enterprise

A key component in Oracle’s strategy to help organizations embrace the digital enterprise, Oracle today introduced its enhanced API Management portfolio with Oracle API Catalog and Oracle API Manager. This is part of Oracle’s vision to help customers address the changing digital business landscape by helping developers use APIs to build new applications and extend existing ones to reach new customers and new markets.

As mobile and the Internet of Things continue to digitize all kinds of products and services, APIs are an essential component in securely connecting applications with devices. Oracle’s comprehensive API Management portfolio, including Oracle API Gateway and Oracle API Catalog, helps streamline the process of finding, understanding, securing and using APIs. The newly released Oracle API Manager provides easy-to-use facilities for annotating and publishing REST and SOAP services as APIs to a Developer Portal where application developers can discover, test, register and subscribe to these APIs, as well as track API performance. It is available on-premises today and will soon be available as a component of Oracle’s rapidly expanding cloud services portfolio. Additionally, Oracle API Catalog simplifies the publication of API services that are developed in Oracle and other sources.

“The convergence of cloud, mobile, social, and Big Data is ushering in new digital business models,” said Amit Zavery, senior vice president of products at Oracle. “Oracle’s comprehensive API Management portfolio enables organizations to simplify the delivery of new API-based services, helping to increase adoption of their APIs, reach new customers, and capture new revenue opportunities.”

Oracle API Management provides complete API lifecycle management, including the definition, creation, publishing, security, monitoring, and management of APIs, and is seamlessly integrated with private, public, and hybrid cloud solutions. The portfolio includes Oracle API Manager, Oracle API Catalog, Oracle API Gateway, and Oracle Service Bus.
