MachineShop is an IoT middleware company that allows enterprises to create custom API endpoints for easy integration to applications using industry-standard RESTful API's. “We understand the need to further simplify and standardize the way REST APIs are created, documented, and shared with developers,” says Campbell. MachineShop has recently adopted the powerful interface, Swagger, to build their representation framework and language for APIs. “We believe that Swagger will evolve to meet the needs of programmers and service providers in the future,” explains Campbell. MachineShop’s customers have a range of deployment requirements from public cloud, private cloud, and on-premise and hybrid approaches. Leveraging the underlying technology, customers can apply device management APIs to everything from alarm systems to telematics devices. This can create business rules for a large range of events using the same basic services and APIs.

MachineShop is focused on being the market-leading provider of API-based services for the connected world. “We see API Management as part of a larger data and systems integration challenge, so we focus on the API-fication of IoT,” illustrates Campbell. The company shows tenacity for staying relevant, delivering technology and services to achieve business objectives and satisfy customers. “We maintain strong communication with our customers, so as to improve our services and offer additional functionality to meet their growing business needs,” concludes Campbell.
