Akana Releases Envision to Enhance API Analytics

Provides New Advanced Tools to Collect, Analyze, Understand and Optimize the APIs Powering Digital Enterprises

LOS ANGELES, July 22, 2015 – Akana, a leading provider of API Management, API Security and Cloud Integration solutions, announced that it has released Envision, an enhanced API analytics platform that helps enterprises to mine critical insights across their digital eco-systems, understand their customers and partners and offer value-added personalized services. Akana Envision provides businesses advanced analytics and insights into how their APIs are performing, how they are being used and how they are driving business value.

"In today's digital economy, data-driven insights are proving to be a key differentiator for businesses. Understanding the data that is being tunneled through their APIs and how it can be used to optimize their business and operations is of paramount importance," said Alistair Farquharson, CTO of Akana. "We have delivered Akana Envision to extend the Akana API Management Platform with powerful analytics capabilities so that digital businesses can increase agility and adapt based on intelligent insights gleaned from their API programs."

Akana Envision is an extension of the Akana API Management platform's existing analytics capabilities. Integrating business and operational analytics with extensive out-of-the-box functionality, Envision empowers digital businesses to extract meaningful insights from their API data and the surrounding context of how and where that data is being leveraged. Extensible and configurable, the platform can be utilized to perform complex custom analytics or integrate with an existing analytics platform to reduce infrastructure redundancy. It targets enterprises that require advanced analytics and insights around their APIs and the data that is exchanged through these APIs.

Envision's core business analytics capabilities allow for tracking product, customer and monetization trends. The platform can also help identify new opportunities and provide insights to improve business models. Envision API Analytics help identify top APIs by usage, monetization, app type, platform or channel. API owners can analyze API licenses and usage as a means to fine-tune developer and partner onboarding. Operationally, IT professionals can use Envision to analyze how their infrastructure responds to requests from different devices, locations and request types. Enterprises gain the ability to manage quality-of-service of their APIs, oversee quota usage and troubleshoot and react to problems before they can adversely impact their business.

Envision highlights include:

  • Data Lake.
  • Data enrichment with Map Reduce, R Analytics and custom plug-ins.
  • Policy-based data collection for regulatory and security compliance.
  • Out-of-the-box reports and dashboards.
  • Data import from external sources.
  • Capability to export to external analytics tools for further analysis.
