Accelerating digital transformation, APIs first
Enabling organisations and teams to realise the full potential of APIs
We believe that organisations need to be good at change: to be responsive, open-minded and ready for both knowns and unknowns. Being good at change means implementing the right technologies with the right approach and culture at the right time. These come together via APIs to open up fresh business models and to gain new value from existing customer and product or service offerings. A well executed approach to APIs means this can be done more quickly and easily.
Regardless of your organisation’s size or industry, it’s likely that APIs are part of your business and IT strategy. You may be well advanced with hundreds or thousands of APIs offering the full gamut of customer, employee, third party partner and developer experiences. Or you may be starting out exploring the potential for APIs to make a difference to your business models and customer experiences.
How you approach your API strategy and find what will work for your customers and business plans will be unique for your business. Choosing how and where to get going, and then where to focus as you mature with APIs will be key to the impact and pace of your progress. We help you build the know-how, skills and capabilities for you and your colleagues to choose the right APIs for your business and to implement them sustainably for the long-haul.
Beyond adapting : adopting APIs with API practice that sticks
We support organisations at all stages of API maturity with answering questions such as:
How do we align APIs with our digital strategy ?
What API choices and priorities should we focus on ?
What can we learn from other industries and geographies ?
How do we identify and manage APIs-as-products ?
How do we justify and get sponsorship for API-related investments ?
How do we improve our developer experience for using and building APIs ?
What is our optimum operating model to support APIs now and into the future ?
We help getting to pilot, from pilot to API-as-products, and then scaling APIs across and beyond the enterprise
