Mobile platform Appcelerator has just acquired API integration management service, Singly, for an undisclosed amount in a move that is expected to turn heads and raise eyebrows in the mobile enterprise application sector.
With APIs becoming more and more prominent, a growing number of companies are finding success with API-only or API-centric offerings. So is building customer-facing applications a thing of the past? While there is good reason to believe that the trend toward API-focused companies will continue and even accelerate, there are still virtues to building end-to-end solutions.
Cloud, mobile and social media are now mainstream computing concepts. Today, consumer and business users all demand access to applications and data from multiple devices, inside and outside of enterprises, on a continuous basis. As a result, users interact with an enterprise through many different interfaces which all converge at the API layer. A well-executed enterprise API strategy will ensure API usage is tracked and security is achieved, enabling enterprises to create more selling channels, improve engagement with customers and prospects and offer more value to partners.
