Enterprise API adoption patterns

Moments of technology-driven inflection in business are often hard to spot because they occur more slowly than the hype cycle might hope. This is the case with enterprise adoption of APIs. It has been tricky to identify enterprise API adoption patterns because API use is often at multiple levels of maturity within the same organization. The use cases are not always as simple as are found with consumer APIs such as those from Facebook, Google or Twitter. Yet, the transition is clearly happening and ushering digital transformation with enterprises.

Businesses seeking to leverage the latest forms of mobile and digital channels are utilizing RESTful APIs to deliver engaging experiences to their customers and partners, wherever they are. Enterprises are investing in APIs in order to forge ahead with digital transformation initiatives, in order to increase revenue, and improve productivity. APIs have become the technology of choice for enterprises that want to make their data and content more readily available for consumption, whether it be externally or internally. As we see more corporations tackle the pragmatic challenges of adopting APIs, distinct patterns are beginning to appear.

This paper looks at four APIs usage models that are emerging as businesses revise their internal enterprise architectures so that they can address business needs with agility and efficiency.
