API Development (SOA, WebServices, Client/Server, Mobile)

Why API?

  • Quick time to market to enable legacy services and implement new services.
  • Stateless architecture to enable mobile, digital, cloud and B2B applications.
  • Standard based approach to ensure application is secured end to end including partner applications.

 

Typical Challenge

  • Lack of API/SOA strategy and roadmap to meet the demand of quickly evolving mobile and digital needs.
  • Challenge of leveraging & integrating existing in-house services & build new services on the cloud.
  • Challenge of standardizing & securing API for customer facing and B2B applications and keep API flexible while data is protected and meet security and compliance standards.
  • Leverage (not throw away) existing technology investment, e.g. Active Directory/LDAP, Application Firewall, B2B gateway infrastructure, etc. to create an organically evolving ecosystems (Corporate, Customer and partners).

Data Analytics: Big or Small

API layer provides the gateway for customer and partner application integration. There is no better layer to capture interaction data from your user. Our API solution has built-in data integration to ensure critical data is captured securely to support big data analytics. Some cases business may want to capture specific data unique to their industry or business. Our API solution is flexible and extensible to capture “small” data as well with no or little customization.
