WaveMaker Unveils New API Designer for Enterprise Developers Using Microservices Architecture to Accelerate Creation of Modern Applications

Removing the Last Barrier to Enterprise Rapid Application Development (RAD), WaveMaker Is First to Give Rapid Developers a Complete Toolset for Creating, Managing, and Consuming Applications Under the Microservices Architecture

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/25/14 -- WaveMaker, Inc., a leading enterprise application Platform-as-a-Service (aPaaS) software company, today announced API Designer, a powerful component for architecting modern applications under the API-driven development (ADD) methodology, enabling Microservices Architecture (MSA), and the first tool to integrate API publishing into a RAD integrated development environment (IDE). The newest entry in WaveMaker's platform of tools that have disrupted staid, legacy approaches to application development, API Designer streamlines rapid app development by enabling API creation as a barrier to MSA.

With API Designer, professional and non-professional developers alike can create API-based apps and substantially accelerate development time, the ability to link those applications into larger applications and systems, and ease portability, scalability and reuse of applications.

For example, a sales organization may need to capture information from several disparate systems and make it available on a smartphone for salespeople in near real-time. Even today, there is no standard mechanism for the business teams to discover functions offered by enterprise apps, creating a hard dependency on the IT team to build and deliver these apps or services. As a result, IT teams are overburdened by a long queue of projects and often forego departmental apps that could potentially drive enterprise growth.

But API Designer, as part of the WaveMaker platform, enables departmental teams to define cleaner APIs between their apps for API consumption. This empowers business developers to discover and integrate with the necessary functionality, thereby ensuring quick development of applications. What's more, API Designer ensures consistency in APIs, which is critical to effective API governance and management.

The First Toolset for End-to-End MSA App Development
In the traditional development approach, API creation is more of an afterthought, considered after the application is built and delivered. However in an API-driven approach, the API is the first artifact created and the business functionality is implemented as a Microservice, connected by these APIs. In contrast to SOAP-based APIs, which are marked by a formality and rigidity that incur lengthy development and implementation times, API Designer enables developers to quickly develop RESTful APIs for new applications, and easily create RESTful API wrappers for legacy or SOAP applications and services. In doing so, they can modernize, reuse, extend the life of those applications, and easily integrate them into larger, cross-departmental applications and systems.

Using API Designer, developers are now armed with a first-in-industry toolset for modern rapid application development, combining API-based development with the Microservices Architecture -- and purpose-built to foster the growth of Docker container-based applications. The WaveMaker platform includes:

  • API Designer, for designing and building apps with exposed APIs
  • API Gateway, for managing internal and external APIs
  • RAD Studio, for the rapid creation of responsive multi-device apps and easy building and consumption of APIs for MSA best practices
  • Docker-based PaaS, to app-optimize private infrastructures

WaveMaker stands out in stark contrast with other API management and PaaS companies, which do not provide or support RAD and Docker-based application deployment, and with other RAD companies, which do not provide API publishing or management.

"Non-programmers within business units or departments need to build and deploy applications that IT simply cannot prioritize," said Samir Ghosh, CEO of WaveMaker. "At the same time, pro developers in IT want to retain control of app creation, but they either face severe backlogs or they may not be skilled in the front-end development methods required to build apps for multi-device environments. The WaveMaker platform not only provides the RAD tools they need, but, with API Designer, introduces rapid API creation. By focusing on the lifecycle of modern custom apps for the enterprise, we are providing synergies across the RAD tool, API authoring, API management, and the deployment and re-use of applications, while helping developers enforce MSA best practices."

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.
