How APIs can help?

Posted on Posted in management

APIs help to identify value. API discussions are very valuable when you think about organisational structure. Think about your organisation while reading hints below:

  • Decoupled UI allows you to have different workflows while core logic stays the same
  • Can use 3d party software
  • Easier to delegate to non-domain experts
  • Easier to communicate with other teams & hide certain complexity of specific components
  • Less meetings and communication problems for technical people
  • Decoupling from others. API is like a street – you set the rules and others can use it
  • Simplify UI -> others can do it
  • It helps to sell the product, as you are focused!
  • You can give away the boring stuff and focus on what’s important
  • You can construct things faster, like a LEGO!
  • You can experiment faster with features
  • You can experiment with business model

APIs give you technical agility and allow to grow and experiment faster – how organize a company, how to build stuff. But it’s not easy…
