Exadel’s David Schoenbach published a very interesting article on how APIs are exposing value and changing the nature of the Internet.
In 2012, the client-server paradigm, which has dominated application architecture — and the modern Web architecture which is its most modern incarnation — over the past twenty years, is giving ground to a more broadly distributed client-cloud approach. As this shift happens, it promises to unlock value in previously under-utilized enterprise data and media content. The catalyst for this change is to be found in the explosion of application programming interfaces, or APIs, which expose resources within and beyond the corporate firewall and redefine the online economy.
