Description: Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) have played a key role in business and
commerce for more than a decade, giving rise to the new API economy. But it wasn’t
until recently that APIs started to proliferate exponentially: Just about anything “as a
service” has become available by way of a Web-based API.
Software as a service, infrastructure as a service, database as a service, platform
as a service...
The list of “as a service” offerings is long and getting longer, enabling companies to
effectively respond to rapidly changing market and customer demands.
