APIs are causing a huge technology disruption. Developers armed with APIs are changing the enterprise IT landscape. The tech world is being turned upside down as developer API access is changing banking platforms, airline systems, e-commerce platforms and much more.
James Donelan, VP Engineering, discusses the impact of APIs on product development, competition, and how we approach software engineering in his article, “Arm yourself: The API wars are coming“.
He discusses the importance of micro-features and how they fuel disruptive applications, as well as how companies with API strategies will be the ones to succeed. But how exactly do you arm yourself? By opening up existing platforms and API-enabling them, companies can start putting API strategies in place.
Be prepared for the API war!
