WHERE DO YOU WANT TO BE ON YOUR API MANAGEMENT JOURNEY?

The value of APIs for business

APIs enable the exchange of key data across an ecosystem of applications and services.

Developing with APIs allow organisations to accelerate software creation that is scalable, seamless and mobile. It is a long-term solution that can give a competitive advantage to any organisation. APIs also simplifies the process for applications to communicate with each other in a standardised format. This can be internal to an organisation, or externally. This has a positive effect on customer satisfaction and retention since APIs make daily use of applications easier.

Some simple examples of this include using Google Maps in a food delivery or taxi service app or using your Google account to authenticate and log in to Spotify.

Why do businesses move to an API culture?

Businesses recognise that application integration has a powerful effect on customer satisfaction and retention.
API integration is a key technical enabler, providing opportunities for growing and transforming businesses to make use of cross applications. As part of their digital transformation journey, organisations are modernising legacy systems not only to transform to modern technology, but to enable a modern business.

Businesses move to API integration when they want to:

  • Replace traditional middleware with APIs, enabling improved data exchange across ecosystem of apps and services
  • Integrate SaaS applications with on-premise data and applications
  • Migrate data, apps and services from on-premises to the cloud with cloud-agnostic API management
  • Automate and streamline processes based on business logic, through knowing what data you need access to and gaining access via APIs
  • Improve reporting, analytics and decision making through accelerated access to reliable data
  • Adopt an API-driven development practice to deliver modularisation and flexibility of software services
  • Optimise existing delivery of products and services, with quicker deployment (and therefore time to market).

Data plays a huge role in aligning business and IT leaders.
Full API lifecycle management is the technology that enables data-driven processes and mindsets. An API driven approach is a practice that meets the expectations of customers, partners, stakeholders and developers, enabling applications to be built in an agile way, deployed at scale, and easily connected to other applications and systems.

USE CASE: API GATEWAY

Organisations are struggling as Point-to-Point (P2P) integrations can no longer keep pace with modern application integration needs.

When a company infrastructure only has a few components, P2P integration can seem like a lightweight way to connect everything together. Unfortunately, as the company grows, their integrations won’t stay lightweight for long. Many organisations have learned the hard way; an infrastructure based on P2P integration quickly becomes unmanageable, brittle and damaging to both the IT budget and the organisation’s ability to meet current and changing business needs.

Digital business transformations increasingly demand expedient and diversified ways of provisioning data that combine endpoints on-premises and in the cloud. Tools and technologies of the past are no longer sufficient to address the demands of modern business. The increasing complexity of data and growing demand for Software as a Service (SaaS) integrations requires organisations to deploy more flexible and dynamic solutions.

USE CASE: MONETISE DATA ASSETS

Organisations are missing out on the opportunities to monetise their digital assets and services.

With advancement of digital economy, modern organisations want to capitalise more from their digital assets and services. Companies nowadays are mining large volumes of data and new online services are being offered every day that can provide value to customers, partners and to the developer ecosystem.

Organisations can potentially charge for their data and services as part of their business model, however, due to lack of modern integration platforms businesses are unable to monetise their services. Some of these transactions are done through contracts and data sharing agreements or, in some instances, these assets are given away for free.

Apigee Monetization offers a mechanism for API providers to realise value from their APIs through creating revenue models and payment plans for the use of APIs.
