IronCloud Platform

New revenue streams & sales channels by sharing data via APIs.

Companies with data in closed enterprise applications, software-as-a-service, and legacy systems can finally tear down access barriers – and the conduit for making it happen is APIs. Sharing your data assets via APIs not only gives your data greater value, but creates new business opportunities for revenue.

APIs offer a direct, live connection to data that creates a better end user experience for your customers and facilitates a fresh and modern approach to data exchange.

The challenge is developing, deploying, and delivering APIs, which requires control, security, hosting, infrastructure and much more. The IronCloud API management platform was built to make this challenge easier, predictable, scalable, and faster to implement.

Created in 2003, IronCloud is the most mature and reliable API management solution available. IronCloud enables access control and new functionality for your data assets, while accelerating speed-to-market and reducing complexity. StrikeIron’s methodology walks your organization through all stages of API management – click here to learn more (PDF).

IronCloud was developed with the business management user in mind, such as sales teams, product management teams, and similar non-technical business team members, so a company’s data assets could be easily monetized.

The platform also ensures your data assets can be integrated with other systems like mobile applications, on the web, customer relationship software, and SaaS applications so you can reach more customers.

Because IronCloud was built with a focus on monetizing your data assets, the management console includes visibility into how much data your customer is using, the potential each customer has to be upgraded or if there is a risk of customer churn. Billing options are built in as well, including invoicing, credit card payments, subscription payment models and many more.
