Application services governance is about the planning, design, implementation, publication, operation, consumption, maintenance and retirement of APIs and services.
According to the report, “The most distinctive attribute leaders in this market have is that they kept the pace of changing technologies and the changing nature of projects. The rise of the API economy has put API management in everybody's thoughts, and API management took central stage in this quadrant.
APIs must come from somewhere, and leaders extended their offerings to API design and implementation. API programs frequently start small with innovative ideas, and they need to execute fast. The leaders made sure their offerings could cope with this dynamic environment.”
“The rapid expansion of mobile, cloud and the Internet of Things has fueled a new level of connectivity and reshaped industry boundaries in a digital transformation of business. Whether it’s creating new sources of revenue in the front-office, or unlocking data siloes on the backend, APIs are at the heart of these digital initiatives and their resulting innovations,” said Rahim Bhatia, senior vice president and general manager, API Management, CA Technologies. “We believe our positioning in the leaders quadrant confirms our ability to help organizations securely transform their business with APIs and win in the application economy.”
