Akamai Technologies Inc., Cambridge, Mass., has released a suite of SOAP-based tools and services for distribution...
and management of Internet applications and content.
Using Web services, customers can integrate the EdgeControl platform's network, content, application and user management features directly into their business processes, Akamai said. EdgeControl's capabilities are based on the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) Web services standard.
Because the platform is open, customers and third-party applications can integrate the activation, management and monitoring of services, content, and applications directly with their own applications or third-party tools, Akamai said.
