  • It's all about managing those APIs better says WaveMaker

    APIs are nothing new. The application programming interface used by developers as routines, protocols, and tools for building software applications has been around for some time. APIs are used as building blocks that allow programmers to write an application much quicker and more efficiently than would happen without APIs. Despite APIs being around for quite some time, I can't tell you how many times this year non-developers have approached me to talk about APIs. APIs is no longer a topic just being discussed by developers but also by their managers and even the company executives.

    Companies, government, and organizations are realizing that managing and controlling their APIs can offer a strategic advantage. Software providers are noticing this renewed interest in the libraries of code and services offered. Here now in 2015, we're seeing a new crop of tools and platforms that allow programmers to better publish and manage their APIs.

    This week, WaveMaker, Inc., a leading enterprise application Platform-as-a-Service (aPaaS) software company, announced WaveMaker Gateway, a bundle of tools enabling enterprises to open their APIs to the external world. WaveMaker extends its suite of API tools beyond publishing, wrapping, and sharing APIs within the enterprise, allowing authorized partners and third-party developers to consume APIs vital to their business, and allowing API owners to eliminate risks from unintended users.

  • Off Topic: Starting my Summer with the Blossom Smart Watering Controller

    Off Topic: Starting my Summer with the Blossom Smart Watering Controller

    Spring brought to South Dakota plenty of rain. The lawns are green, the flowers are in full bloom, and it seems we can't go beyond a couple days without a rain shower or thunderstorm. While water is usually plenty for my city, we do things smart around here and restrict water usage for our lawns year round. It's not uncommon in my part of the country to see the weather pattern quickly change from wet to dry. What once was green can turn brown in a hurry.

    If you want a green yard when summer is in full swing, you will do best to respect the water restrictions and program your sprinkler controller the smartest way possible. Here in my city, watering lawns is not allowed during the hours of 12 p.m to 5 PM. Homeowners with even-numbered addresses may water lawns on even-numbered calendar dates and users with odd-numbered addresses may water lawns on odd-numbered calendar dates. Last summer though, my traditional sprinkler controller decided this responsibility was too much of a burden. The failing controller couldn't even keep the time of day correctly yet alone maintain an ideal watering schedule. So this May, I replaced my failing controller with Blossom's Smart Watering Controller in hopes of a greener lawn and a better sprinkler system.

    Common Mistakes Businesses Still Make When Moving to the Cloud

    The cloud is where you need to be. At least that’s what companies are being told these days. The hype surrounding cloud computing is difficult to ignore, and organizations are responding by moving to the cloud in droves. This surge in cloud adoption makes the whole movement seem more like a fad at times, but it’s important to note that cloud computing does bring some significant benefits to the table. In other words, there’s a reason businesses are jumping on the bandwagon. At the same time, all this transitioning to the cloud can lead to mistakes, especially when companies aren’t prepared for the challenges and pitfalls they may encounter. A number of mistakes have become all too common and often lead to more costly implementations and frustrated IT workers. Businesses should take care to avoid some of the more prevalent cloud transition mistakes that crop up.
