LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
SOA Software, an API
Governanceleader, announced today new
advanced API licensing and dynamic documentation capabilities to help
businesses further monetize their data, applications, and services. As
part of SOA Software’s API Management Solution, the advanced licensing
capabilities enables businesses to support different revenue models for
their Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). API owners can create
multiple custom API products and license terms based on fine-grained
entitlements and business needs.
“APIs are now at a center piece for businesses to exploit new digital
and mobile channels to provide opportunities to create new revenue
streams,” said Alistair Farquharson, CTO of SOA Software. “Our new
advanced licensing capabilities maximize the potential of packaging APIs
based on different business models. Our goal is to equip business stake
holders to take the APIs provided to them by their API team and exploit
all possible licensing and business scenarios to maximize monetization
APIs form a channel for new revenue streams from partners and customers.
What’s historically been lacking, or difficult, has been for
non-technical business users to turn an API into a set of products that
can be targeted at varied set of partners and customers. The new
advances licensing capabilities allow business users to create packages
based on specific business goals, channels, and strategies.
SOA Software’s advanced API licensing capabilities empower business
users with little technical expertise to manage the entire process to
creating API bundles based on different level of entitlements. With
these new capabilities, it is possible control the visibility to APIs at
a granular level, provision access to data different partners and manage
rate limiting policies at the license level. SOA Software now gives the
API owner a turn-key licensing and documentation solution that is
completely integrated with the SOA Software API Management solution:
An updated Dynamic Documentation feature is being introduced in parallel
with the new licensing capabilities. With each specific license, one can
automatically create dynamic documentation so that business partners see
only aspects of the APIs that are licensed to them. This is a time saver
that reduces the friction to adoption by controlling the visibility of
documents and document elements based on licenses. Dynamic documents can
be authored in Swagger, with a tag library for visibility controls.
