Australian organisations recognise importance of API management

By

API management is at the heart of digital transformation, according to integration and analytics vendor Tibco.

Tibco is seeing "across the board" interest from Australian organisations in its API management products, APAC and Japan general manager Erich Gerber told iTWire.

Even the large banks are moving quickly to the cloud and hence API management, and miners are increasingly using sensors and other IoT devices for applications such as predictive maintenance.

"They are technologically savvy these days," Gerber said.

Along with other sectors such as local government, logistics and telecommunications, "they're all talking about the same thing", namely moving from on-premises systems to an agile, cloud-centric environment.

Large enterprises understand the need for digital transformation and hence to pervasive, API management-led systems that can bring all the data together in a way that provides the organisation with more agility.

On-premises architectures need to go away, Gerber observed, adding that it was widely understood that it was time to move to hybrid or pure cloud systems.

But even with good API standards and management tools, "a fool with a tool is still a fool", he said. "It's the same old issue... a lack of talent."

So banks, telcos and other large organisations are increasingly working with universities and other institutions to identify and develop the employees they need.

"We're seeing progress in that area."

The importance of "connected intelligence" can be seen in the success of the Mercedes-AMG Formula One team (Tibco is one of the team's official partners), Gerber suggested.

Mercedes-AMG shows "superiority in how to manage data and anticipate what's going to happen", he said.

It collects terabytes of data every race weekend, and analyses it at the track and at the factory to understand how to optimise racing achievement.

The driver used to be about 80% of success, but — with all due respect to Lewis Hamilton and his peers — that's fallen to something like 20%, he suggested.
