Enabling Essential Integrations in the API Economy
In the era of digital transformation, every company is now a software company. As companies look for ways to make the transformation faster and more valuable for their customers, employees, and partners, some of that software is often the creation of outside parties, integrated with proprietary capabilities.
Widely dubbed, “the API economy,” this still-evolving approach is enabling enterprises to strengthen their digital offerings in ways that previously would have been out of reach.
But obviously when customers, employees, and partners need to be able to move seamlessly between multiple cloud-based applications, managing access, security, and creating simplicity is a must.
This critical task is the expertise of Okta, the leading provider of identity for the enterprise.
“Identity management is this new foundational capability in the digital economy,” says Okta CIO, Mark Settle, of this quickly expanding need, and his company’s pioneering role in the API economy. Since the company was founded in 2009, “Okta has created a whole new category.”
A key part of Okta’s ability to integrate, and connect people to technology is an elegant, single sign-on dashboard which simplifies the day-to-day for people using multiple applications.
Hector Aguilar, Okta’s CTO and SVP of Engineering explains, “I can connect once and then that basically gets me access to every single application that I need to use. I can do it from my mobile device, or my desktop device.”
The innovative company is trusted by an impressive, fast-growing list of enterprise customers, including Experian, 20th Century Fox, LinkedIn, Flex, News Corp, Dish Networks and Adobe.
