He also will discuss scalable statistics collection for API ecosystems, key design considerations, real-time and offline analysis, and WSO2’s approach to addressing these challenges.

Demonstrating Open Source API Management and Internet of Things

As a Gold Sponsor, WSO2 will be demonstrating how Internet of Things (IoT) devices can be connected to the WSO2 platform, including WSO2 API Manager. Additionally, experts will be on hand to explain the capabilities of WSO2 API Manager, the first 100% open source API management product to combine easy, managed API access with full API governance and analysis.

As the first API management product to offer an API Store, it lets IT organizations set up their own Apple or Google Marketplace-like store where developers can easily subscribe to and consume APIs. Meanwhile it provides API publishers with complete API lifecycle governance—from creating to publishing, deprecating and retiring APIs—as well as analytics and metrics to support decision-making and enforce service-level agreement (SLA) policies.

WSO2 API Manager is built on the same WSO2 technology used by enterprises around the world, including a Global 1000 company that is handling more than 1 billion API calls per day. Providing full multi-tenancy, it runs directly on server hardware or in a virtualized environment, such as an Amazon or VMware cloud, bringing the efficiencies of multi-tenancy and self-service to on-premises deployments. Additionally, the cloud-ready WSO2 API Manager software can plug into the WSO2 platform as a service (PaaS) foundation to operate as part of a PaaS, adding cloud-native capabilities, such as elastic scaling, expanded self-service provisioning, metering, billing, and storage, among others.

Internet of Things (IoT) Leader: Samsung

The world is moving beyond standalone devices into a new era in which everything is connected. The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to uniquely identifiable objects (things) and their virtual representations in an Internet-like structure. Stated differently, the concept involves the notion that there are many things (assets, objects, etc.) in the world that may be addressed/labeled/cataloged for various purposes.

To Browse a Full Report with ToC: http://www.researchmoz.us/internet-of-things-iot-leader-samsung-report.html

One term used for this concept is “Object Hyperlink”, which refers to the notion of extending the Internet to objects and locations in the real world. In other words, the Internet is associated with (or mapped to) the real world by attaching object tags with URLs as meta-objects to tangible objects or locations.
