  • Hello everyone thank you for joining the call today. I am laura heritage. I am a principal solution architect for Enterprise API Platforms. I have been working with companies all over the world for the past 10 years establishing AP and SOA strategies. In my last webinar a few weeks ago I introduced Enterprise API Management Adoption Patterns. Today I am going to focus on the Internal Adoption pattern

  • APIs bring the promise of Extending the reach of your business, enabling you to reach your consumers in ways you haven’t even dreamed of yet. They enable you to get to cloud, mobile and IoT. Or so they promise too.
  • But how do you Extend your reach if your internal house is not in order? When I speak with enterprises about APIs, they all say they need to get there, but most say we are not mature enough to have an API. But like with most, the term APIs and an “external” connotation to it now.
  • As I mentioned earlier, there are four main adoption patterns I am seeing right now. Internal, Mobile, Partner and External Innovation. As you can see, APIs are largely being adopted within the enterprises.
  • When we take a look at house APIs are adopted within the enterprise the there are several different use cases / scenarios. They are typically based on maturity.
  • In my webinar a few weeks ago I introduced this Business Impact of API Adoption Patterns. For very large companies the potential business impact is High when adopting APIs. Realistically it is going to initially be a medium business impact. However, once your internal house is in order it will be much easier to obtain the High and Very High impact of the Partner and Public APIs
  • Isn’t this just SOA?
  • How do you move from point custom APIs to the higher value APIs that can be consumed in a self service fashion?

APIs are and Extension Of SOA Approach Level • API – Are a product which can have a direct or indirect tie to revenue. • SOA Services – Are utilized to make an enterprise more agile to break down the business process into composable parts. Consumption Level • APIs tend to have larger number of consumers and focuses on ease of consumption through self service • SOA Services tends to have well known consumers and fewer of them and usually has a more detailed on-boarding processes. Governance & Management Level • API – Focuses on product management tasks • SOA – Focuses on organization changes and standard approaches Technical Level • API and SOA - Requires similar runtime management capabilities The Gartner document is available upon request.*Gartner, Inc., Magic Quadrant for Application Services Governance by Paolo Malinverno, Daryl C.

A Unified API Gateway is A Good Place To Start • Simplified architecture • Light weight • Lower skill level need to deploy, run and manage • Policy driven through configuration • Endpoints are standardized • Quick return on investment
    18. 18. Copyright © 2001-2013 SOA Software, Inc. All Rights Reserved.Copyright © 2001-2013 SOA Software, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Purpose Built ESB Might be Necessary When: • You already have an ESB in your architecture • There is purpose built ESB that has legacy system adapters that will make your life easier • Need assured delivery with transaction role back capabilities • Off load expensive message processing • Complex Orchestrations and Event processing • Separation of concerns in architecture (interface / implementation)

Caution • Be careful if you want to start by putting in a purpose built ESB first if you don’t already have one. • You may never reach the Unified API Gateway level due to the complexity of setting up the ESB.
