Efficiently turn APIs into real-time experiences, using a proxy-as-a-service that turns any request-answer API into real-time event-driven data feeds without a line of server-side code.

API Monetization News

These are the news items I've curated in my monitoring of the API space that have some relevance to the API definition conversation and I wanted to include in my research. I'm using all of these links to better understand how the space is testing their APIs, going beyond just monitoring and understand the details of each request and response.

If you think there is a link I should have listed here feel free to tweet it at me, or submit as a Github issue. Even though I do this full time, I'm still a one person show, and I miss quite a bit, and depend on my network to help me know what is going on.

API Monetization Organizations

These are the organizations I come across in my research who are doing interesting things in the API space. They could be companies, institutions, government agencies, or any other type of organizational entity. My goal is to aggregate so I can stay in tune with what they are up to and how it impacts the API space.

Aria Systems

Aria provides a cloud-based monetization platform for subscription- and usage-based businesses. Aria removes billing bottlenecks and allows companies to rapidly introduce and evolve their offerings, bundles, and promotions. Only Aria provides speed and agility at scale in the cloud, delivers actionable customer insights, and empowers business users with direct control to better monetize their offerings.

Google Cloud Billing

The Google Cloud Billing API provides methods that you can use to programmatically manage billing for your projects in the Google Cloud Platform.

Google Apps Admin SDK

Administer domain resources, create reports, and manage subscriptions. Use the Directory API to create and manage users and groups for a domain, along with their aliases. Programmatically access the functionality found at the Admin console Organization and users tab. Use the Reports API to gain insights on Content with Google Drive activity reports. Audit administrator actions. Generate customer and user usage reports.

If you think there is an organization I should have listed here feel free to tweet it at me, or submit as a Github issue. Even though I do this full time, I'm still a one person show, and I miss quite a bit, and depend on my network to help me know what is going on.
