Winning in the API Economy Takes 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. Exposing 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
