The importance of security

In April 2013, hackers hijacked the Associated Press’ Twitter account to post one fake tweet about two bombs exploding at the White House and the President being injured. As a result, the stock market went into a 143-point free-fall before the hoax was exposed and Dow Jones Industrial Index recovered. The entire episode may have only lasted 3 minutes, but thanks to programmed trading, billions of dollars can be made or lost in milliseconds. Unfortunately, there’s no way to know for sure how much real damage was done during this episode since the Dow’s recovery didn’t necessarily unwind the losses many incurred when that hoax erased more than $136 billion in market value.

APIs enable companies to tap into digital assets to create new revenue streams, extend their value proposition through partner-delivered capabilities, and dramatically improve agility and responsiveness to new business opportunities. But APIs are no magical elixir. “Build it and they will come” may work in the movies, but in the universe of APIs, it couldn’t be further from the truth.

The success of an API hinges on adoption by the developer community – 3rd party developers in the case of public APIs, your own developers in the case of internal APIs – and achieving adoption requires careful planning at the outset. If you’re looking to improve an existing API, launch a new API initiative or just drive more adoption of your APIs, take a look at MuleSoft’s latest whitepaper – “Secrets of a Great API”.

This whitepaper provides a set of guidelines to help you deliver winning API programs. In it you’ll learn what developers want, how to design for great user experience, proven strategies for driving developer adoption, and how to make your API stand out from the crowd.

5 Traits of a Superior .NET Integration Solution

When looking at options for your next generation integration platform, the development language of the underlying ESB should not be a primary concern. .NET teams in particular often constrain their search to only .NET-centric ESBs, ultimately leaving them few options. If you find yourself in this position, here are a few things to consider:

  • At its core an ESB is all about interoperability.
    A strong ESB will support a broad range of standards, protocols, and adapters, enabling integration of services and applications written in any language or platform. A Best of Breed ESB doesn’t care if the services it is connecting are written in Java or C#.
  • A Best of Breed ESB will enable the majority of integration work to be done through tools that are easy to learn and provide visibility into what is happening in the ESB, rarely requiring developers to write or debug code.
  • When code is required for customizing integrations, the ESB should provide frameworks, APIs, and templates for the customization. So, for example, a .NET developer customizing a good Java-based ESB would use a small subset of Java, primarily needing to understand Java syntax, not the full breadth of Java technology. A Best of Breed ESB should also be extendable with other familiar languages, such as JavaScript or Python.
  • Java and C#, the predominant languages in the enterprise, are nearly identical in syntax.

So how should you choose the best ESB solution? As you begin the journey to evaluating your next generation integration platform there are critical components that will help you connect, implement, and deploy faster:
