Yesterday, Saugatuck Technology caught up with Daniel Saks, Co-CEO of AppDirect – and discussed the future of AppDirect as well as the evolving landscape around APIs, Platforms, and the emerging software category often dubbed the “API Economy.”

For those not familiar with AppDirect, it was founded in 2009 as a way to create an aggregated marketplace for SaaS applications that can potentially alleviate some of the API Economycomplexity inherent in using multiple best-of-breed and point solutions, rather than integrated single-vendor suites. AppDirect accomplishes this through the use of their platform, which enables a one-stop-shopping experience where standalone applications can be purchased, provisioned, and managed from a central location. This includes aspects such as single sign on (SSO), multi factor authentication, and data integration. Additionally, their platform is constructed of many fully accessible APIs that enable complex exchanges of information both with their platform, or from application to application to facilitate data sharing and flexibility in complicated use cases.
