Continuous API Management
APIs are the connective fabric that powers digital transformation. Managing APIs well is essential given the large and continuously growing landscape of APIs in large organizations. As large organizations increasingly embark on digital transformation journeys, new patterns and practices emerge, including products as APIs, “API first”, API guidelines, API governance, and API platforms. Continuous API management (CAM) focuses both on individual APIs and on the API landscape, and helps organizations to better manage and evolve their digital capabilities.
As a way to better assess the current status and to define a way forward, there are five CAM compasses that help organizations with API strategy, program, landscape, individual API products, and API consumption practices. Based on these compasses and the pillars of digital transformation (business, organization, technology), in this session Erik explores how API initiatives in large organizations get underway and start delivering value to the organization from the very beginning.
