The ubiquity of mobile devices is something we’ve all become used to in recent years. Still, the remarkable popularity of Apple’s iPad seems to have kicked things up another notch. The whole BYOD phenomenon has finally brought Apple hardware and software into the enterprise. Meanwhile, for many of us, the iPad (or similar tablet product) is becoming the primary means by which we consume content – newspapers, TV, music, you name it!
With new tablets coming on the market and consumers demanding more and more mobile access to content, API management is becoming an increasingly pressing concern for content providers. At Layer 7, we’ve been following these developments closely, while providing API management and security solutions to some big names in content delivery and mobile communications, including Orange.
We’ll be demonstrating our mobile API products at the end of this month, when we set up shop at the GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona (February 27-March 1). This is undoubtedly the big mobile industry event of the year, so it’ll be exciting to be in the thick of things. The fact that it’s happening in a city as spectacular as Barcelona is just the icing on the cake. If you’re lucky enough to be attending, you’ll find us at booth 2.1A79.
