Akana’s API Management solution for Microsoft offers full lifecycle management of your Microsoft-based APIs. It helps you to plan, build, run, and share your APIs on Windows Azure, in your on-premise environment for internal services, and hybrid scenarios where you need to expose internal services securely to mobile devices on the cloud. The solution natively integrates with Microsoft technologies such as Windows Azure Service Bus, BizTalk Server, and Windows Communication Foundation (WCF). Native support for the Microsoft platform lets you fully leverage the powerful security and runtime aspects of the Microsoft platform without the need for time consuming and costly integration projects.
The API Management solution for Microsoft lets you manage the planning, development, and deployment of your Microsoft-based APIs. Akana Lifecycle Manager, together with Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server, lets you prioritize and build APIs based on your current and planned needs. When it comes time to run your services, the Akana API Gateway adds native Microsoft security, transformation, integration, and mediation to your APIs, letting you spend more time building APIs and less time building infrastructure. The API Gateway also adds rich monitoring and analytics for your runtime services, including real-time system monitoring, alert management, reporting and SLAs, giving you powerful insight into the usage and behavior of your Microsoft services.
You can easily share your APIs with mobile apps and other applications using Akana’s Community Manager developer portal. The portal enables simple sharing of APIs and apps, provides powerful support for publishing APIs and services and fostering social interaction among developers.
