API Management

API Management

Embrace the digital economy. Unlock business data to generate new revenue streams.

Is your business becoming more technology-centric because of the opportunities generated by mobile devices and apps? How do you quickly respond to your customer needs and the changing market conditions in a secure and controlled way?

To master the increasing complexity of the digitalization and to become an agile business, organizations need to actively adapt their business models. APIs provide you with the building blocks to turn your business into a flexible integration platform. API Management enables you to build a connected enterprise where data, applications and other assets are securely bridged across the organization's boundaries, allowing you to innovate, create new sources of revenue and drive additional value to all stakeholders. 

“In the age of the customer, every business is a digital business. This means software is central for today’s enterprises, and APIs are central for today’s software” 
- Forrester Research Inc. April 2015

Benefits

Business Expansion
Expand your business, open for innovation and reach new audiences and markets thanks to API Management. Securely expose your data to partners so they can participate in your value chain and foster innovation. See an API as yet another revenue stream: the notion of API economy becomes very relevant to the business as it provides an opportunity to monetize APIs' usage.

Visibility
Gain more visibility in your assets and their performance. Align processes, people and tools to maximize business benefits by creating reusable assets and eliminating liabilities. Avoid duplication of investments and developments and reduce costs.

Accountability
Increase accountability in your organization. Clear ownership of assets enables the communication and cooperation between departments. It allows for better decision making and avoids profitability to reduce.

Enterprise-wide value
API Management helps you think in terms of a strategic solution, rather than projects. You will deliver long-term benefits by adding enterprise-wide value. 

Lifecycle Management of assets
A risky change to an existing asset often appears to be a showstopper for the introduction of innovative solutions. Effective asset management reduces the cost of changes and allows for a quick go-to-market.
