An outside out perspective drives IT Strategy today, where not just internal stakeholders, but also your external stakeholders and their extended ecosystem has the potential to impact your business performance. In a digitally connected world where your customers have power to follow, analyze and provide feedback on your performance through their mobile devices, listening closely to the voice of your customers is critical.
Why API First?
APIs are strategic technology enablers, allowing your business to fulfill your stakeholders requirements in a scalable manner. This is why GoodDolphin believes strongly in helping enterprises championing an API First perspective.
We recognize that business ecosystems today are constantly in a flux, driven by changing stakeholder needs and rapid advancements in technology. It's not easy to remain focused with purpose on a clear and winning strategy that provides competitive edge to your business. API First recognizes that in an environment of flux, APIs must be your primary technology enabler for engaging within your ecosystem in a purposeful, strategic and adaptable manner. API First means APIs are your priority technology investment opportunity.
By definition, APIs act as a programmable (thus adaptable and flexible) interface between yourself and your stakeholders, be they internal or external. Due to this simple, powerful and yet flexible and adaptable nature of APIs, API First also recognizes that by investing first in APIs, your technology strategy automatically aligns with your business strategy. This is because when executed properly, GoodDolphin believes that APIs will be a reflection of your business model. The API First principle believes in APIs as not just technology enablers, but also as a strategic asset for your business, a product in itself, and a key propagator of incentives that reflect and support your business model.
Another implication of the API First principle is that in contrast to the traditional model where a business first built a website, the model today is that business should first build their API.
