The APIWorld and DataWeek events are currently taking place in San Francisco with a mix of API providers and developers, C-level enterprise representatives, and marketers all vying for attention. It is a mixed bag of attendance with over 4,000 participants expected, although the close proximity of the event to the timing of the API Strategy Conference being hosted at the end of the month, also in San Francisco, may be causing some lack of cohesion in the type of audience attending. Key themes include the growth of services aimed at supporting developers, the limited creativity of using realtime data and the slippery task of defining a viable API business model.
SOA Software, a leading API management solutions provider, has just announced the addition of API Orchestration to the SOA Software API Management Platform. Earlier this year, SOA software launched two new API management solutions; API Management Solution for Microsoft and API Management Solution for IBM WebSphere DataPower.
