APIs and Mobile Middleware – A Match Made in Heaven

We just don’t talk enough about the intersection of APIs and mobile middleware, but they really are a match made in heaven

We just don’t talk enough about the intersection of APIs and mobile middleware, but they really are a match made in heaven. APIs are the prevailing interface model, mobile middleware provides the Enterprise grade security and scalability, and HTML5 keeps mobile fragmentation costs at bay. It all came together last week at IDF 2013. Here is a picture of the demo pod rocking a full end-to-end demo with Expressway API Manager.

Expressway API

Expressway API and Mobile Middleware Demo @ IDF2013

The use case was a conference room booking demo which helps large Enterprises (like Intel) optimize the use of physical space for meetings and collaboration. Expressway provided the governance, mediation and security layer by taking XML and JSON room sensor data and optimizing it for mobile devices through caching and compression. Further, rather than worry too much about sensitive information leaking to the phone from back-end systems.

Expressway redacts potentially sensitive personally identifiable information (PII) and checks API response data against a data loss protection policy at the egress (API) point. On top of this it scales to thousands of half-duplex (HTTP) or full-duplex (Websocket) clients, all with a simple drag and drop policy and an API discoverable from a developer sharing platform.

How is it all better than MBaaS or a boutique mobile development shop? You have lower development costs and lower TCO, lower operational costs for developer collaboration, fewer mobile fragmentation nightmares and  Expressway policies that can be maintained by an architect, not a dev team.

Kudos to the Expressway and HTML5 teams. If you have an interesting mobile use case that can benefit from APIs and mobile middleware, let us know in the comments!

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through.

There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
