Understanding the Digital Economy: SOA vs. APIs

The basic mechanism for sharing across team and organizational boundaries is called an API. Modern APIs are flexible ways of projecting capabilities to an audience outside of your own team, in a controlled fashion. When done right, APIs enable enterprises to innovate faster and reach new audiences. Twitter has an API that allows you to tweet using the app of your choice; you don’t have to go to twitter’s web site. Amazon.com has an API that allows a merchant to plug into their retail platform; you don’t need to create your own merchant portal. Your own enterprise probably has an API that allows one of your mobile apps to talk to the backend customer system; the mobile team does not need to understand the intricacies of the way the member system works.

Transforming Business Through Strategic Process Management

A recent Gartner poll of their client base found that 80% of public and private sector companies say they are undertaking major business transformation due to:
  • desire to shift to digital business
  • desire to become more customer/constituent-centric
  • perennial activities to keep pace with regulatory changes
More than 70% of these initiatives fail to deliver the desired outcome. Process management practitioners can defy these odds by applying the latest process and change management thinking, techniques and technologies.
