An API Economy (B2B Service Platform)

With more and more businesses wanting to expose their services across different channels, API service platforms has evolved into a big need of the hour.Top Players in the market,
  1. Apigee
  1. Mashery
  1. 3Scale
  1. APISpark by Restlet

What do they offer,
  1. API Usage Metering/billing
  1. API Traffic control 
  1. API Auth/Auth
  1. Performance & High Scalability
  1. Logging

Do I use it in any of my projects, well I haven’t. But they seem to bridge niche area in enabling content providers to expose content and build a revenue around the API.
No wonder why API is a most used, abused & powerful terminology is software :)
