  3. API Economy - what it is?
    Strategic tool to gain more opportunities,
    business and profit.
    ➔Modern Application Architecture Relies on APIs
    ➔Consuming APIs will be more common than
    exposing APIs
    ➔APIs Enable Bimodal, and Bimodal Requires
    APIs

    Trends and facts
    REST has taken over...for now
    GraphQL is moving fast

  5. Understand & utilize Developer scene
    Full-stack API Economy house – APInf Oy
    Early adopters: gatekeepers,
    ”beta fine tuning”
    Innovators: skilled, participatory,
    window to future, ”forgiving”
    Mass: expect ease of use,
    performance, ”ruthless”
    Let them be

  6. Developer expectations (mass)
    Full-stack API Economy house – APInf Oy
    Access to different data via multiple methods
    ➔ Datasets / APIs
    APIs taken into use in minutes (no email requests or form
    filling)
    Self-service (API-portals as an example)
    For APIs:
    ➔ Reliability (prove it!)
    ➔ Ease of use (SDKs, guides, frameworks driven)
    ➔ Performance (prove it!)
    Where the money comes from

    Data - fuel for apps and services
    ➔ Data sets - Low barrier for citizen usage
    ➔ Quality, availability
    ➔ Open APIs - currently learning curve too steep to get wide
    adoptance
    ➔ Importance of API DX is not understood
    ➔ Some dont even want wider usage (sign of not treated as
    products)
    ➔ Limited access APIs - partner, commercial, governmental (X-
    Road as an example)
    ➔ Platform Developer eXperience vs API DX

    Function APIs – undiscovered goldmine
    ➔They provide much needed functionality for developers
    and integrators.
    ➔Function APIs can save developers time when building
    their applications by providing needed functionality
    immediately, cost effectively, and with functionality that
    would otherwise be impossible without an API.

    Function APIs – undiscovered goldmine
    ➔ Translation APIs
    ➔ Fedex API - provide shipping costs
    ➔ Directions from A → B as with the Google Maps API.
    ➔ Location of a mobile application user
    ➔ F-Secure Security Cloud API for URLs - determine the safety
    and content categories of URLs, which helps you to prevent
    end-users from accessing URLs that lead to harmful sites
    All of these require data mass, but the added value is not to
    provide raw data but processed data.
