When it comes to cloud data warehousing, the choice between Snowflake vs BigQuery is crucial for businesses that rely on big data analytics for decision-making. Snowflake, known for its flexibility and ease of use, contrasts with BigQuery, Google’s fully-managed, serverless data warehouse that excels in speed and scalability. Understanding the main differences between these two platforms is essential for selecting the right solution that aligns with your data strategy and operational needs.

Application programming interface (API) automation testing is a type of automated testing that focuses on the performance and functionality of APIs. This process can test APIs for correctness, compatibility, and efficiency. API automation testing can ensure that APIs function properly and meet consumers’ expectations. Here’s the key things to know about API automation testing: Table of Contents.

An API’s main purpose is to allow multiple applications to communicate with one another. However, APIs can easily be made more secure and efficient through API gateways which provide a unified entry point across internal APIs. This unified entry point allows for greater control over user access and helps elevate API security measures like rate limiting while also applying security policies like OAuth or JWT. Plus, API gateways are extremely beneficial for securing microservices.

Snowflake and Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse are two cloud data warehouses that provide you with a Single Source Of Truth (SSOT) for all the data that exists in your organization. You can use either of these warehouses to run data through business intelligence (BI) tools and automate insights for decision-making. But which one should you add to your tech stack?

You might have heard the rumors circulating in the tech world—PHP, the venerable programming language, isn’t as secure as its modern counterparts. With roots tracing back nearly three decades, PHP soared to popularity during the early days of the web, when security practices were still finding their footing.

Apigee is a cloud-based API management tool. It integrates data from databases, warehouses, data lakes and SaaS services. It is a no-code tool making it a valuable asset for citizen integrators and developers alike. However, the platform was initially designed to build APIs for monoliths. It was not designed to handle microservices. Given we are in the age of digital transformation where microservices rule, Apigee may not be suitable for a lot of use cases.

Whether you’re working in the marketing department or the operations department, you’ve probably heard a lot about APIs and API integrations. API integration is the process of connecting different software systems or applications through their respective APIs to enable them to communicate and share data seamlessly. These have become the “buzz” terms of IT departments in recent years as more enterprises embrace the trend toward digital transformation.

API testing is a critical part of the software development lifecycle. If you’re not performance testing your APIs, you’re putting your entire system at risk. API testing is the process of verifying and validating the functionality, reliability, performance, and security of an API to ensure it meets its requirements and behaves as expected. This guide will discuss the importance of testing and how to test APIs.

Using the DreamFactory API management platform it's easy to expose your database stored procedures via API endpoints. This short video demonstrates how to use DreamFactory's auto-generated API endpoints to list available stored procedures, learn more about a specific stored procedure, and call a stored procedure with several input parameters.

As a best practice, you should take care to provide clients with the minimal API access privileges required to successfully complete their tasks. DreamFactory's role based access control manager ensures administrators never leave your data sources unnecessarily vulnerable, offering a point-and-click interface for quickly defining and reviewing privileges. In this video we'll walk through the configuration of a role-based access control, demonstrating how a client's API access privileges can be easily updated so as to allow only read access to a select set of API endpoints.

Containers and microservices are redefining the software development lifecycle. Developers are empowered to choose best of the breed languages, frameworks, and runtimes to develop software. DevOps teams are dealing with new packaging and deployment mechanisms. Container orchestration tools such as Docker Swarm, Kubernetes, Apache Mesos are changing the way applications are deployed and managed.

Serverless Computing is considered to be the fourth wave of computing where x86 servers, virtual machines, and containers represented the first three generations. With this new paradigm, developers can squarely focus on the code and without the need to deal with the underlying infrastructure. They never have to plan the number of servers, amount of storage, and the network topology of deployments. Since the platform deals with one function at a time, and functions are the fundamental deployment units, this model is often called Functions as a Service (FaaS).

Never Build an API Again. An enterprise-grade API as a service platform available in the cloud or on-premise. Generate database APIs instantly to build applications faster.

Integrate any SQL or NoSQL database, file storage system, or external HTTP or SOAP service and DreamFactory instantly generates a flexible, comprehensive, and fully documented REST API endpoint that’s ready to use. Focus on building your applications, not hand-coding APIs for every new development project.

Benefits:

  • Instant APIs without code. Eliminate the biggest bottleneck in modern IT. Launch your project in weeks rather than months. DreamFactory instantly creates a secure, standardized, reusable, fully documented, and live REST API.
  • Manage your data portfolio. Connect Salesforce to SQL Server, or your ERP to AWS S3. Transform and mask data along the way. Create reports, analytics, and alerts. Empower teams to retrieve and distribute data on demand.
  • Secure your data with layered controls. Secure every API endpoint with Role-Based Access Controls, SSO Authentication, JWT, CORS, OAuth, and Active Directory. Deploy behind firewalls and in air-gapped environments.
  • Modernize legacy applications. Integrate legacy technology into cutting-edge applications, extending technology lifecycles and derisking legacy system replacements.

REST API Automation and API Management made simple.
