As organizations shift from a centralized integration approach to a distributed approach, self-service becomes a priority. Agile teams need the authority and autonomy to seek out, learn about, test, and exploit services developed inside and outside their company, and a strong application programming interface (API) capability delivers this authority and autonomy to those teams. However, APIs alone do not lead to strong business performance. Strong performance relies on a comprehensive integration strategy—one that also incorporates a broader microservices-based integration and messaging strategy and marries these initiatives to a secure, authorized, and action-oriented API management platform.
