We live in a digital world. With the digital transformation, customers demand connectivity and innovative services. And in this rapidly changing marketplace, they have more options than ever. Companies need to respond quickly. It can be tough to keep up. On the bright side, this is a really exciting time because we can, in fact, deliver faster. And more. So how can you meet consumers expectations?

One of the most popular ways of communicating digital information is via APIs, or Application Programming Interfaces. A lot of widely known apps use APIs: the most common social platforms, your favorite traffic apps, like Waze, your bank app or even apps like weather. They all use APIs.

In this post, we will present the Oracle API Platform Cloud Service, and walk you through some of its concepts, including why you should consider using it.

Why an API platform?

To better understand why you should use this platform in your company, we should talk about hybrid clouds. Gartner defines a hybrid cloud service “as a cloud computing service that is composed of some combination of private, public and community cloud services, from different service providers. A hybrid cloud service crosses isolation and provider boundaries so that it can’t be simply put in one category of private, public, or community cloud service. It allows one to extend either the capacity or the capability of a cloud service, by aggregation, integration or customization with another cloud service.”

At the same time, they still have legacy applications on premise that must integrate with cloud resources and vice versa. Customers and end users are requiring to have their mobile applications connecting to companies’ systems, most of them still on-premise. Not only with cloud, also exposing api’s quick to end users like apps on mobile devices etc. Read the complete article here.
