Writing and publishing Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are as important today for doing business in this Mobile era as having a website was in the 90’s. APIs are transforming the way organizations do business by providing new partnering opportunities and revenue channels. To be more competitive, organizations are leveraging APIs to extend their customer reach, create new revenue channels, support their partners and interact with their vendors/suppliers and foster innovation. There is focus on making APIs self-service, developer friendly and easily accessible. All good things, but without an API Management platform and strategy in place, an organization’s good intentions can result in security risks, unauthorized access and lost revenue.
A well designed and managed API program gives an organization insight into the usage, availability, security, accessibility and usability of their APIs. This can result in new partnerships, better efficiency for employees, more reliable vendor communication, and ultimately, new revenue channels.
When it comes to implementing an API Management strategy, designing and defining strategic roadmaps are typically most successful when done by someone with the knowledge and expertise in both the technology and business requirements.
