Single purpose API
Sorry, No followers
CiRBA has just released an API that communicates with your cloud management platform telling it the most efficient spot for that next virtual machine (VM). The API could make for a good marriage between platforms. While cloud management solutions are ideal for provisioning VMs, they don’t always have controls in place for managing capacity.
WSO2, a leading enterprise middleware company, has just announced the launch of the WSO2 App Factory, a cloud-enabled enterprise DevOps platform that allows project teams to collaborate on the creation, deployment and management of enterprise applications. This new DevOps platform also allows enterprises to better control the applications being developed with their APIs, including applications that are developed in-house and applications developed at their partner networks.
For at least thirty years, people have talked about the "paperless office." With cloud-based services, it may finally be possible. Yet, for many organizations, a major hang-up is contracts, which require ink signatures. In our first public API report, sponsored by DocuSign, we looked at electronic signature platforms. Specifically, we examined the features and developer friendliness of e-signature APIs, which allow non-ink signatures to be automated and integrated into business processes. Without a doubt, e-signatures are a growing field, as evidenced by the recent acquisition of EchoSign by Adobe.
