SOA Software Announces Industry's First Enterprise-Ready API Management Solution

Company's Atmosphere Products Enable Customers to Expose Business Capabilities

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/13/11 -- SOA Software, a leading Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and cloud services Governance provider, announced today the availability of Atmosphere, the industry's first true enterprise-ready API Management solution.

Enterprises are making business applications available as APIs to drive business growth and expose new opportunities. As a result APIs are reshaping the business landscape as dramatically as the rush to create an Internet presence with a web site did in the late 90s. APIs are becoming the primary way that businesses interact with their customers, reach new markets, and provide the global app development community with the tools to deliver business capabilities to customers.

Atmosphere provides a secure, robust platform that companies can use to share their APIs with the growing developer community. Atmosphere manages, monitors and secures APIs ensuring that companies' APIs deliver the level of service customers and partners require; the security of corporate and customer information and assets; and the integrity of the corporate brand.

"Finally, the growing maturity of enterprise service-oriented architecture (SOA) initiatives makes public API projects more likely," said Eric Knipp, Gartner Research Director.

Atmosphere is the industry's first true enterprise-ready API Management solution. Atmosphere is:

  • Production-proven -- Atmosphere leverages SOA Software's experience in meeting the needs of demanding production environments in many US Fortune 1000 companies
  • Hybrid deployment capable -- Atmosphere API Management solutions can be deployed on-premise or in the cloud to meet business requirements or regulations that mandate businesses guarantee the security and privacy of customer data
  • App-centric -- Atmosphere provides sophisticated yet simple security capabilities that allow API providers to control and monitor app's usage of their APIs
  • Policy-driven -- Atmosphere defines all security and quality-of-service through centrally managed policies, ensuring consistency between multiple API implementations and versions
  • Flexible -- Atmosphere allows customers to define and manage their APIs using a wide range of messaging types and formats including REST/XML, REST/JSON and SOAP. It allows customers to create an API with multiple interfaces using different standards with no extra development effort
  • SOA enabled -- In addition to exposing new capabilities, customers can leverage Atmosphere to harness existing investments in web services and enterprise SOA, presenting these capabilities in new ways

"Atmosphere represents an important breakthrough in the way that enterprises leverage APIs to create new business opportunities by reaching a growing developer community," said Alistair Farquharson, SOA Software chief technology officer. "It is the first truly enterprise-ready solution, offering customers the robust, flexible capabilities they require for large-scale use."

The Atmosphere product capabilities include:

  • API definition, content, policy and lifecycle management to ensure that APIs are correctly structured and well documented with integration with internal design and development processes
  • Intermediation to simplify the creation of RESTful APIs with both XML and JSON content from various internal service types with powerful paging and caching to improve app performance
  • Sophisticated security capabilities to help protect the APIs from abuse and ensure the privacy of customer data
  • Comprehensive QoS management (SLAs and quotas) to protect internal applications from overload at the API and to provide customers with service-level guarantee
  • Extensive consumer contract monitoring and management of traffic from individual apps
  • Integrated sandbox, testing and debugging capabilities to simplify the delivery of high-quality APIs

A completely new computing platform is on the horizon. They’re called Microservers by some, ARM Servers by others, and sometimes even ARM-based Servers. No matter what you call them, Microservers will have a huge impact on the data center and on server computing in general.

This is a new category of computing platform that is available today and is predicted to have triple-digit growth rates for some ...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...
