In a previous blog post, How to shift your APIs perspective from Systems to Consumers, I went through a case study for a customer who was learning to create API products instead of RESTful integrations. The article focused on how to design swagger definitions for APIs that solve consumer problems and are easy for API consumers to self-service understand, test and requisition.
You are using nouns and verbs correctly. You are delivering JSON payloads. So why is your service not considered an API? This article uses a customer use case to illustrate the difference between a technically compliant REST service and an API.
At CA World ‘17, Vanick Digital received the Breaking Barriers Award for collaborating with CA Technologies by helping businesses realize the full value from their API investment. Vanick has been a CA Partner since 2015, but they have been helping customers with APIs for almost 20 years. They pride themselves on their ability to implement API programs, not just software. This award is definitely an example of CA and Vanick breaking barriers together.
An effective API program rests on the bedrock of a solid reference architecture. This architecture enables the agile, reliable, performance, and secure delivery of APIs to your developers. However, software tools aren’t the whole story. Let Vanick Digital show you what tools you need to unlock the value of APIs.
