• From APIs to Enterprise Architecture

    Not forgetting the interaction with Business Models and the People & Behaviour

    The API abbreviation comes from the words Application programming interface. API is a defined and documented agreement, usually to help the integration and interaction of different software with each other. They can command each other, make requests, or exchange information.

     

    The purpose of an API is to facilitate maintenance and further development. The Enterprise Architecture, on the other hand, combines the company's strategy and business objectives with the organization's information systems and processes. The overall architecture aims to turn business goals into technology solutions. The model we provide enables this integration.

    API economy - more than an application interface

    Osaango Oy offers a new service model that combines business consulting and behavioral sciences with API architecture and further into one overall business architecture. The goal is to utilize API's potential to optimize business models and customer journeys.

     

    Data is the core of a business, but data left unused is useless. We apply behavioral and data management methods in evaluating and developing the best APIs for our company. In Osaango, we will look at the interfaces as needed minding the efficiency of the API economy, the platform economy, and the internal IT architecture.

     

    The API Economy perspective emphasizes API's ability to provide and utilize its own and other resources as part of the development of ecosystems and services, and the impact of APIs on business models. Our API consultancy consists of three different entities:

    • Business models for platform economy, enterprise architecture, and transformation
    • Improving the developer experience
    • Digital behavior design

    Read more about the API economy in our book, API Economy 101. You can find the book here.

     

    Business models and knowledge management for platform development

    Business-driven platform design often faces one massive problem: How to get users and how to keep them? When you build a multi-sided platform, you need a certain number of customers and vendors at the same time on the platform - or no one will stay.

     

    An existing business may focus on more traditional products and services or e-commerce. It is possible to develop a service model by utilizing data. If you feel that your competitors are around the corner waiting to bite into your market share, what should you do?

     

    The problem can be solved by using business theories and architectural design combined with understanding the behavior of the customers. This kind of thinking is familiar in the field of knowledge, not just information and data management, and we have integrated these comprehensively at Osaango Oy. We consulted business developers and developers. We combine APIs and other boundary resources, understanding of cultural competence and platform economy as part of a strategic business model.

    Improving the developer experience in the API economy

    You will want developers to use your APIs with satisfaction and even to promote it to other developers. You will achieve the best developer experience with a well-designed and documented API, which is easy to use, and relevant.
