European IT decision makers under pressure to deliver faster than ever

We recently surveyed 800 IT professionals across Europe to find out the pressures they are facing as well as how they’re using APIs to improve their businesses. The results were clear – moving faster and becoming more agile are the top priorities for IT execs in 2016.

Over three-quarters of IT professionals said the pressure to deliver IT services from across the organization had increased over the past 12 months.

Holiday shopping on your mobile phone

2015 is shaping up to be one of the most mobile friendly holiday shopping seasons ever. Adobe predicts that for the first time, mobile will drive the majority of shopping traffic. Google has shown that 1 trillion dollars of retail sales were influenced by mobile search in 2015, and 53% of us – up from 41% last year – shopped online using a mobile phone or tablets.

The rising value of APIs

There’s an argument that data is the most valuable resource a company has. As consumers and businesses use more web and mobile apps, and companies use data to provide personalized experiences for their customers, and analysts use data to make real-time decisions, it is becoming clear that the discoverability and presentation of data is increasingly important to how businesses function.

APIs have emerged as as the most accessible way for consumers within the business to extract value out of enterprise data.

It’s no surprise that business is changing dramatically. The potential afforded by digital transformation could have dramatic effects on companies’ growth, scalability, and revenue. Here are the top 5 trends that I think will have a major effect on businesses next year:

Upcoming webinar: Top secrets of API security

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.

A good API strategy can help turn your data into revenue

When business leaders think about their organization’s data, they might think about records kept in on-premises systems or even in cloud applications, but they generally think of that data as very much inside the business. But what if those data assets could be reimagined and repackaged as a complete service and then exposed, inside and outside the business, through APIs? Now enterprise data not only has the possibility to spur growth but also provide new revenue streams for the business.

Managing Disparate PaaS and Private Cloud Environments for Financial Services

motif

Financial Institutions (FIs) find that deploying PaaS and IaaS solutions within a private cloud environment are an attractive alternative to technology silos created by disparate server hardware, operating systems, applications and application programming interfaces (APIs). Private cloud deployments enable firms to take a software-defined approach to scaling and provisioning hardware and computing resources.

FIs face a number of challenges as they build out their private cloud and PaaS environments:

  • Financial services firms are deploying private clouds and PaaS to improve IT manageability and to empower developers,
