Today, government IT teams are expected to deliver more services with fewer resources. Consequently, many agencies have prioritized legacy modernization, interoperability, and shared service models as a means towards increasing IT delivery capacity. We propose that successful execution of these initiatives within the confines of a strictly managed budget requires a new approach to integration, one centered around APIs.
Our recommended approach, API-led connectivity, builds on the principles of re-use first outlined by SOA, while avoiding many of the pitfalls that limited the success of heavyweight SOA implementations.
In this whitepaper, you will learn:
- What forces drive digital transformation in federal government, and what role integration plays in supporting digital transformation
- How a civilian federal agency leveraged APIs to modernize legacy systems and accelerate the speed of integration
- How to build out an API-led architecture within a government agency to accelerate project delivery through promotion of re-use
