Digital business transformation at its core is dependent on the number of well-defined application programming interfaces (APIs) an organization can publish. Unfortunately, the development of those APIs has been dependent on the availability of developers to actually create them.
CA Technologies, with the launch of CA Live API Creator, is aiming to change that once and for all by making it possible for anyone in the organization to automatically create an API for an application or any particular data set they choose. In addition, CA Technologies has upgraded the CA API Gateway for managing APIs to include support for Docker containers, Android devices, and a suite of open source CA Mobile App Services components that developers can employ to streamline development of mobile applications.
Phil Walston, vice president of API management for CA Technologies, says CA Live API Creator not only automates the process of creating an API around data residing in a relational or NoSQL database using graphical tools, it ensures the quality of the API by adhering to best practices.
