Winning in the API Economy Needs a Rock-Solid Strategy

Welcome to the API economy. APIs have changed to embody standards such as HTTPS and REST to increase accessibility and consumption across new audiences. And unlike the APIs of the past, modern APIs are treated like products that can be versioned and documented, giving developers an indication of their lifecycle and maintenance requirements. 

 

Navigating and succeeding while utilizing APIs require a time-tested and results-oriented strategy. AVIO’s award-winning framework takes you from planning to ongoing management with reliable expertise built into every stage of the process.

AVIO’s API Strategy Unlocks the Power of Data with API-Led Connectivity

API-led connectivity enables developers to reuse APIs to unlock data for use in applications and projects throughout the entire system. Along with decentralizing and democratizing data, API-led connectivity uses three categories of reusable APIs to create new services and expand system capabilities.

Producing reusable assets also unlocks other systems, including legacy applications, SaaS apps, and other data sources. Developers can then reuse those API assets to compose process-level information, allowing them to discover and self-serve on all reusable assets to create an API experience layer that eventually leads to end-applications.

Faster Deployment and a Superior ROI

Mulesoft’s API-led approach — with reusable assets at the core of its methodology — ultimately leads to increased speed, productivity, and agility. Along with creating new revenue streams, APIs provide new tools that allow businesses to expand, innovate faster and serve customers better.

Increased stability and reliability with AVIO’s proprietary testing framework

Having a solid testing framework is essential to a viable API technology stack. Mule Groovy — AVIO’s custom testing framework —  supports testing in Mule 4, allowing developers to build automated tests for Mule integrations within the Mule XML ecosystem.

<h2>AVIO’s API Strategy Blueprint</h2>

AVIO’s API Strategy Blueprint

AVIO’s API strategy blueprint comprises several stages that include critical technology and business fundamentals that include: 

1. API Strategy Planning

The first phase establishes the digital strategy and aligns all potential stakeholders against current problems while identifying possible opportunities and core competencies.

AVIO ensures this stage is completed by accomplishing the following steps: 

  • Envisioning business outcomes
  • Determine potential audiences 
  • Validating business models
  • Validating the ecosystem
  • Creating and prioritizing a roadmap
  • Securing executive support 
  • Defining trust, privacy, and security as critical organizational values 
  • Creating a product-focused approach to APIs and related services
  • Hiring domain experts

Metrics and KPIs that measure the success of the planning stage include business cases, roadmaps, prototypes, employee certifications, and API consumer NPS/SAT scores.

2. Designing, Building, and Deploying Modern APIs

 

The second stage comprises the building, evaluation, and deployment of the entire lifecycle API management platform and tools.
This is accomplished by:

 

  • Establishing the API architecture
  • Commencing KPI capture and consolidation
  • Dashboarding
  • Activation of security best practices
  • Establishing certification and training offerings 
  • Publishing a comprehensive developer portal with productivity tools
  • Launching a collaborative feedback loop for future versioning and support
  • Creating incentives for community partnerships

 

Metrics to watch at this stage include:

  • Time to market for new applications and APIs
  • Associated availability and uptime
  • Security KPIs
  • Number of developer registrations, API calls, new applications developed
  • Developer conversion and retention

3. Ongoing API Management

Managing APIs throughout their entire API product lifecycle is critical to the success of your digital evolution. 

MuleSoft’s Anypoint API Community Manager provides self-service API documentation, API strategy resources, support, forums, and the personalized resources developers need to manage APIs throughout their entire lifecycle.
