Helping businesses to build APIs without any coding: Mobapi showcases innovative cloud platform on stand 8.1D41 at MWC 2016

Alice Faure - 18-févr.-2016 15:37:18
Modern organisations want to share, reuse and monetise their core assets through software interfaces, getting ready to enter the “API economy”. But building connections and breaking data silos come with challenges. Mobapi dramatically simplifies the process of creating enterprise-ready APIs, without writing a line of code. Visit Mobapi on the French Pavilion (stand 8.1D41) at Mobile World Congress 2016 on 22-25 February and discover its cloud platform, dedicated to the interconnection of business data generated from various sources: websites, mobile applications, industry specific software, connected objects and databases. Thanks to a user-friendly and simple interface, their tool called “API Builder” provides a turnkey solution on the data interconnection and API market. Creating a new Web API endpoint and getting a custom data feed is literally only a few clicks away. Users can transform the content by adding scripts, filters and functions that will modify data in real time. The outputted data can then be directly integrated into remote client applications. Mobapi includes pre-configured data sources to help with data aggregation and data evaluation. “Our SQL connector can be used to add an API on an existing database with only a few clicks. Once configured, Mobapi functions automatically and with complete transparency, says Vincent Reboul, CEO and Founder. “Mobapi reduces the level of code complexity and maintenance, and streamlines the operation of information systems.” Other features are designed for developers, such as a JSON preview for output data and automatic documentation tools. Enabling organisations to enter the API economy According to a Gartner study, 50% of B2B collaboration will take place through Web APIs (Application Programming Interface) by 2017. In this new API economy, businesses need tools to create and maintain the digital glue that links services and devices. Up to now, there is no easy way to implement custom APIs without coding and in a very short amount of time. Mobapi addresses the challenge of sharing information across enterprise data silos, opening new interfaces in legacy software and closing the gap between existing APIs. It supercharges business development, reduces technical costs and improves content management.   By designing their own APIs with Mobapi, organisations develop a competitive advantage. They can focus on their value proposition without worrying about hardware and infrastructure. “Mobapi will soon offer data retention functionalities, with access to the processed information history,” adds Vincent Reboul. “By the end of the year, users will have access to the full potential of their company data, opening the road to Big Data analytics.” Put Mobapi to the test at Mobile World Congress 2016 Come and visit the Mobapi team on the French Pavilion (stand 8.1D41) at Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcelona on 22-25 February, where they will be providing demos of their innovative cloud platform! About Mobapi Mobapi is a start-up based in French Guiana, a French territory located in South America. The development of the Mobapi solution began in 2014 in Cayenne, after closing a €300,000 round of first seed funding with participation of Alyse Guyane, BPI France and Réseau Entreprendre Guyane. A new round of funding is expected later this year.
