Three Drivers of Connected Enterprises
Today's technology must see beyond a PC program, as one expert put it. These experiences must work on a variety of devices, including computers, smartphones, and IoT devices, as well as physical assets.
FREMONT, CA: APIs (application programming interfaces) have recently gained much traction in the digital world. Internal reusability could be improved if APIs are built first. APIs have evolved into a machine-readable standard for connecting parties. API startups are also a hot market, implying that APIs are becoming products in their own right. Large corporations can also benefit from APIs. Here are three drivers of connected enterprise:
Connected Customer Experience
Many businesses aspire to become technology and software companies. In addition, organizations are attempting to offer improved 360-degree consumer experiences to participate in the connected digital economy.
Digital Business Excellence
There is a new business excellence trend in creating a complete digital experience. This means that data can no longer be locked away; even traditional businesses must move to platforms to provide software and data to their customers. Interesting things could happen along the way, such as your consumers becoming partners.
Platforms have a network impact in that they allow an ecosystem to emerge. It's also critical to include partners in this new digital experience matrix if you want to succeed. One area where partnerships can benefit an integration plan is the API gateway.
