Anypoint for API Management
Manage and optimize the full API lifecycle using a powerful, trusted platform.
APIs are critical to success in
today’s dynamic environment.
APIs enable you to connect a wide variety of systems and data sources, and devices effectively, wherever they reside. They can help you eliminate silos and leverage your legacy systems and data more effectively by unlocking them as APIs, and connect them with modern solutions to create additional value.
APIs are being developed and deployed by businesses of all sizes and industries to foster innovation and improve operations. Among many use cases, APIs can be leveraged for automating business processes, enabling seamless omnichannel experiences, and achieving a 360-degree view of customers. They enable companies to build and launch new products and services much faster than ever before. They also reduce costs and duplication of efforts by enabling stakeholders to reuse existing APIs in multiple initiatives.
How do you manage technology that is changing and reproducing so quickly?
The numerous, significant benefits of APIs have resulted in their rapid creation and adoption by companies that range from online retailers to financial institutions and aerospace manufacturers. With an API-led connectivity approach, organizations are developing three types of APIs to improve their processes and enhance relationships with business partners and customers:
- System APIs that unlock the data from core systems such as ERP and billing;
- Process APIs that break down silos to combine data for a specific business purpose;
- Experience APIs that provide the business context for the data and processes that have been unlocked and combined. An example would be a mobile app, portal, or tracking system.
Some APIs are designed for external use, such as sharing with developers. Some may be restricted to internal use, and others may be made available to partners so they can more easily conduct business.
Achieving these benefits requires the right API strategy, solutions, and expertise.
With so many APIs being created and deployed so quickly, management and governance across the entire API lifecycle are essential. And to achieve these advantages, companies must combine these capabilities with an effective API strategy as well. Studies have shown that businesses that embrace an API strategy are more likely to complete projects on time, achieve higher rates of innovation, enable citizen integrators, save operational costs, and open up new revenue streams. They’re able to outthink and outperform their competition. That makes APIs a game-changer.
Drawing on best practices learned through our engagements with numerous global corporations, we apply our proven tools, skills, and expertise to help you create an effective API strategy and implement and optimize full-lifecycle API Management. We accomplish this through a comprehensive platform for integration and APIs – the MuleSoft Anypoint platform.
