Acceleration of change
Organizations in every industry are facing constant changes in how customers interact and buy, as well as increased competition. The competitive landscape has grown more complex, and the pace of change is accelerating. New competitors are becoming more numerous, more formidable, and more global. Competition is intense, meaning digital customer interaction is more important than ever.
From systems to business services
Application programming interfaces (APIs) are not only a development technique it is a business driver and top management consideration.
An organization’s core assets can be reused, shared and monetized through APIs that can extend the reach of existing services or provide new revenue streams.
APIs should be managed like a product – one built on top of a potentially complex technical footprint that includes legacy and third-party systems and data. If doing so API’s becomes a business asset.
Transforming API technology into API economy
API economy is about how cost effectively you can manage and scale information interaction with existing and new customers and how effectively your organization trades. It’s about transforming your business model into a scalable digital platform that supports customers needs for easy, fast and cost-efficient transactions.
