Powered by dpEngine, Centrify's new online developer portal allows developers to make short work of adding identity and security to their applications.
You have a new public Application Programming Interface (API) that you want to help drive your business. Your going to need outside developers to use it such that it remains relevant; in other words, you need to sell them on using your API. If your lucky, the developers that come to your developer portal will go through an educational journey that will turn them into your API zealots. But is it really luck? I don’t think so; I think that it is about getting the right information to each developer at the right time during their journey. If you get it right, you will end up with a community of developers who help each other and thus help you reach your goal of becoming the coolest API on the planet; if you miss the mark, you and your API sink into irrelevancy.

A lot of companies simply make a leap of faith when they decide to build out a particular business ecosystem -- they subjectively believe in the industrial logic and subsequent value of program that they roll out. But this task was different, I needed to figure out how to quantify the business value of the ecosystem. Being a big believer that anything can be measured, I jumped at the challenge.
