The total ranking of a product (and the bar length) is based on a weighted aggregate ranking. For Views, Comparisons, Reviews, and Followers the score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score of 17.5 points. Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in the category. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product with the most reviews then the product's score and bar length for reviews would be 17.5% (weighting factor) * 80% = 14.
In the final section, Average Rating, there are 30 points available to each product independent of the other products.
Reviews and ratings that are more than 24 months old, as well as those by resellers, are excluded

What is API Management?

API Management refers to the practices and tools that enable an organization to govern and monitor its Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). Today, the term almost always means management of RESTful APIs using the JSON language.

API Management controls how the gateway passes calls to the back-end service and then hands off the response back to the invoker site. Most large companies have built out APIs for their customers and for internal use. There is a choice to have the data on-premise or in the cloud, whichever works best for the situation.

API management tools typically allow for security policy definition and enforcement, including authentication and authorization of API consumers. They can throttle API calls and limit usage based on established SLAs and resource allocation agreements.

IT Central Station users are looking for a healthy API gateway that manages transformation engines to modify requests and responses in real time. Publishing tools report access and usage policies, and manage the API lifecycle. API Management is responsible for collecting data analytics and other metrics, and monitors load balancers and debugging, especially e-mail notifications, error logs and validation errors. Clients using APIs have access to better insights into their usage because APIs impact many products and services, and API Management is critical to agile operations.

IT Central Station users want ease of use in API Management for monitoring these security gateways against malicious attacks. Aspects most important to IT include Directory Authentication, API Security, Life Cycle Management, Deployment Management and Service Registry, discovery and a repository. There should be built in API Aggregation, Traffic Management, Mobile Optimization, HTTP Acceleration and Data Caching.

IT teams specifically look for API Management to oversee encryption, decryption, credential management, URL management and prevention against XSS and SQL Injection threats. API Management will monitor exposed functionality and monetization. API Management solutions are integral to a 24/7 need to keep everything running, and running well. Good planning and project management will help IT choose the best combination of monitoring tools for API Management.
