WaveMaker Launches API Designer for Enterprise Developers

Date 2014/11/27 8:29:01 | Topic: Product News

WaveMaker has announced API Designer, a powerful component for architecting modern applications under the API-driven development (ADD) methodology, enabling Microservices Architecture (MSA), and the first tool to integrate API publishing into a RAD integrated development environment (IDE). The newest entry in WaveMaker's platform of tools that have disrupted staid, legacy approaches to application development, API Designer streamlines rapid app development by enabling API creation as a barrier to MSA.
With API Designer, professional and non-professional developers alike can create API-based apps and substantially accelerate development time, the ability to link those applications into larger applications and systems, and ease portability, scalability and reuse of applications.

For example, a sales organization may need to capture information from several disparate systems and make it available on a smartphone for salespeople in near real-time. Even today, there is no standard mechanism for the business teams to discover functions offered by enterprise apps, creating a hard dependency on the IT team to build and deliver these apps or services. As a result, IT teams are overburdened by a long queue of projects and often forego departmental apps that could potentially drive enterprise growth.

But API Designer, as part of the WaveMaker platform, enables departmental teams to define cleaner APIs between their apps for API consumption. This empowers business developers to discover and integrate with the necessary functionality, thereby ensuring quick development of applications. What's more, API Designer ensures consistency in APIs, which is critical to effective API governance and management.
