“Digital transformation is more than just embracing mobile and cloud. It’s also about transforming how the applications that drive today’s economy are built,” said Rahim Bhatia, general manager, CA API Management. “The new releases in CA’s API Management portfolio arm API and mobile developers with powerful tools that make their jobs easier, and we’re engaging other key stakeholders in the development process so organizations can accelerate time-to-market for new apps and services.”
Simplifying API Development and Application Visualization
“CA is dramatically changing the application development dynamic for how APIs and entire application backends are created,” said KuppingerCole Analyst Alexei Balaganski. “CA Live API Creator is a valuable addition to the company’s already first-class API management portfolio.”
This release of CA Live API Creator makes API and application backend creation simpler for developers and easier for business users to directly engage in the process. By eliminating the need for database expertise and incorporating an interactive and graphical interface, CA Live API Creator allows individuals outside the normal development process, such as business managers, to directly participate in application creation. It gives users the opportunity to take an application idea and visualize it themselves instead of bringing in a whole development squad at the outset.
Accelerating Development for Modern Application Architectures
CA Technologies also released updates to its API Gateway and Mobile App Services products with new capabilities to enhance developer productivity. New functionality includes:
- CA API Gateway support for Docker® containers to provide developers with the agility, control and portability for faster development.
- Convenient open-source access to CA Mobile App Services components, such as software development kits, on GitHub to boost developer adoption and convenience.
- CA Mobile API Gateway support for the Android™ platform and multi-factor authentication for developers accessing APIs.
