Digital integration potentially spans many architectures, tools, methodologies, and standards. Many of these are new and constantly evolving.
Making the right decisions and selections in managing, developing and deploying API's is critical for security, flexibility and competitiveness.
An API project typically involves business stakeholders, infrastructure and development teams.
Our experienced consultants can bring these technologies and teams together in a two-week Agile sprint, using a focused business deliverable to build a functional REST API Pilot.
The key API areas covered are:
