Accelerating Government IT Innovation

Evolving citizen and constituent expectations have created the imperative for government to digitally transform. Delivering on these expectations grows more challenging by the year, as the proliferation of modern technologies (e.g. SaaS, mobile, IoT) forces IT teams to rethink how to best deliver projects to their constituents and deliver on their mission.

Microservices have emerged as a means through which government IT teams can increase project delivery speed without compromising on security. This whitepaper discusses the role microservices can play in government, and how API-led connectivity helps agencies to more effectively and securely implement a microservices architecture.

Readers will learn:

  • How agencies have increased IT agility with reusable microservices
  • Why government IT teams must move beyond point-to-point integration
  • How microservices enable secure data sharing within and across agencies
  • How API-led connectivity supports microservices adoption in government

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

Building the Connected Retail Experience

“Today’s shoppers expect more than a transactional relationship with retailers; they want a seamless and personalized journey that reflects the context of how they shop across devices and channels. The key to success lies in connecting in-store software with online systems so retailers can provide an uninterrupted experience wherever customers shop.” - Ross Mason, Founder of MuleSoft

Driving digital transformation in retail requires connectivity across an ever-increasing number of applications, data and devices. Because of this, connectivity has emerged as a bottleneck that slows the development of new applications and the adoption of new technologies to meet customer demands.

In response, leading retail and CPG companies have adopted API-led connectivity, which eliminates this connectivity bottleneck and enables a 2-5x faster IT project delivery across the value chain.
