Increasingly, mobile is one of the major factors driving enterprises to expose their information assets via APIs. With the BYOD movement bringing mobile into the workplace and some forward-thinking enterprises equipping their employees with tablets, there is a growing need for enterprise-level apps that leverage systems and data exposed via APIs.
Of course, allowing enterprise data to be accessed from smart-phones and tablets (via public networks) creates a range of concerns around security and performance. The security risks are clear – perhaps less well understood is the fact that, for apps to perform efficiently, data will need to be filtered and transformed into formats and protocols suitable for mobile.
