(NYSE Euronext: AXW.PA), a leader in governing the flow of data,
announced today findings of its recent Application Programming Interface
(API) adoption poll. The poll was conducted by API and identity
management leader Vordel, acquired by Axway, during the webinar
entitled "APIs - A Key Part of Your Enterprise Engagement Strategy" with
guest speaker Jeffrey Hammond from Forrester Research, Inc.
The findings revealed:
Half of the global enterprises polled are using or planning to deploy
enterprise APIs, 40 percent of respondents using a mixture of open and
enterprise APIs, and 3 percent using Open APIs.
Additionally 30 percent of respondents are using APIs to expose
on-premise apps to third parties with 29 percent of enterprises using
APIs to build new mobile applications and 22 percent leveraging APIs
to connect internal applications to cloud services.
These results are significant as today, businesses and consumers around
the world are being wired together via APIs. According to Forrester
Research, "Mobile and social commerce opportunities are the likely first
ways in which these APIs will be leveraged, but touch points such as
marketplace integration, embedded commerce ads, in-store digital
signage, mobile point of sale (mPOS), and call center applications,
among others, will soon be common ways that businesses use these APIs."1
"Our research shows that enterprises are increasingly leveraging APIs,"
said Hugh Carroll, vice president, marketing at Axway. "It was
noteworthy that half of the respondents polled were deploying or
planning to use enterprise APIs with 40 percent of respondents using a
combination of open and enterprise APIs. Additionally, as 30 percent of
respondents were using APIs to expose on premise apps to third parties,
the results indicate that enterprises are primarily leveraging
enterprise APIs, to rapidly develop and deliver new customer services to
drive revenue growth into their cloud and mobile channels."
