As organizations and the public continue to grow more comfortable with implementing API technology in day-to-day activities, the market for API products continues to expand. In my view, the API economy not only offers incredible opportunities to explore new ways to interact with devices and services, but also allows innovators to put a new spin on solving old problems ...

The vast majority of today’s mobile applications are statistically doomed to deletion, abandonment or a swift decline into immediate obscurity. For any app to be successful, developers must utilize all the tools at their disposal to ensure it stays front of mind among their users.

Attempting to weigh the current level of DevOps maturity within your organization is one of those daunting propositions that can leave today's business and technology pros searching for meaningful answers. There are some well-established metrics that can serve as inherent measurements of overall DevOps success, including deployment frequency rates, average lead times, meant time to recovery (MTTR), and of course, any figures resulting from dedicated Application Performance Monitoring (APM). Yet, perhaps even more valuable than some of these numbers, or of greater import to practitioners for purposes of self-assessment, are metrics that help analyze precisely how ongoing DevOps adoption compares to similar efforts among peers ...
