Why should C-Level care about APIs? It's the new economy, stupid.

In this 2013 version of our study on APIs, we identify how APIs allow companies to effectively pursue the classical triptych of business goals: business development, product development and supply chain management.

Through three new practical cases, discover how 5 companies, coming from the most traditional fields, use private APIs and technologies such as cloud and data in order to renovate their business and to invent new business models.

We studied the case of 5 japanese companies. 5 business cases showing the emerging business trend which consists in working on a private or partner-based API to change business models and find new paths of monetization:

// RETAIL: Seven Eleven, global leader of convenience stores, optimizes its logistics almost in real time by using APIs

// HEALTHCARE: OMRON, creator of connected healthcare devices, monetizes the data provided by its users to forecast epidemics

// INDUSTRY: Honda, mobile constructor, connects its entire car fleet with APIs, to provide intelligent guiding services to their clients

// MEDIA : Cookpad, originally a user-generated recipe website, sells its knowledge in consumer preferences to food-processing industry
