But often, those strategies aren’t in alignment, leading to challenges in information technology. And in today’s hyper-competitive business environment, that can be disastrous. Companies have to ask themselves: How can we tackle challenges of information technology? Are we doing IT wrong?

Today’s CIOs are the key players who enable organizations to respond to the disruptive forces and information technology challenges impacting all industries — mobile, IoT, and SaaS among others. In order to increase speed and agility there must be a strong partnership between IT and the rest of the business.

API-led Connectivity for Government

Today, government IT teams are expected to deliver more services with fewer resources. Consequently, many agencies have prioritized legacy modernization, interoperability, and shared service models as a means towards increasing IT delivery capacity. We propose that successful execution of these initiatives within the confines of a strictly managed budget requires a new approach to integration, one centered around APIs.

Our recommended approach, API-led connectivity, builds on the principles of re-use first outlined by SOA, while avoiding many of the pitfalls that limited the success of heavyweight SOA implementations.

In this whitepaper, you will learn:

  • What forces drive digital transformation in federal government, and what role integration plays in supporting digital transformation
  • How a civilian federal agency leveraged APIs to modernize legacy systems and accelerate the speed of integration
  • How to build out an API-led architecture within a government agency to accelerate project delivery through promotion of re-use
