A compelling use case for exposing an API in the cloud is to make available resources of an existing enterprise application for new development.

For example, let’s say you have a new mobile application that awards customer loyalty points related to purchase activity. In cases of customer complaint, you may want to give service reps the option to assign a customer points as part of a satisfying resolution. To do that, you need guidelines for how many points to assign based on customer history. An existing business rules system in the company’s on premises data center could provide this guidance if off premises reps could access it. Exposing API access to the rules system becomes a development priority.

In this webinar, Andrew Trice demonstrates the process of building and scaling an API on Node.js using StrongLoop’s Loopback framework, whose visual editing consoles enables rapid development of complete RESTful CRUD APIs. Andrew then shows how to deploy the API onto the cloud platform in an appropriate container.
