TIBCO Open API Exchange Launches

The TIBCO Open API Exchange is a self-service portal for developers to get started with the on-boarding process of providing business transparency related to the use of open APIs in their applications.

This integrated solution for implementing an open API business strategy is designed to make it simple for enterprise developers to help expand their businesses into new revenue and marketing channels.

NOTE: The developer portal also provides a fully integrated environment to create, test, document, and publish open APIs, with support for REST-based API styles, and seamless transformation of data and message formats, such as XML and JSON.

Company CTO Matt Quinn says that, "As companies open up new levels of access to internal data and business functionality through the use of open APIs, they require solutions that provide advanced security enforcement and threat protection, managing and securing access to their data across broad range of platforms and web-based mobile devices."

Examples of policy domains managed by the product include authentication, throttling, content-based message routing, mediation, and message transformation. TIBCO API Exchange will aim to address this challenge by providing security and access-control capabilities, as well as event-based policy management.

TIBCO API Exchange integrates with the TIBCO Spotfire analytics server to provide a full range of out-of-the-box analytics and reporting capabilities. Consumers of Open APIs need to understand and monitor API usage within their application bases, and providers need to ensure delivery of services that support SLAs and other performance criteria. Spotfire analytics provides end-to-end monitoring for API requests and responses, and provides full audit trail and debugging capabilities for rapid problem resolution.
