DataScan Builds an Application Network to Future-Proof
In an increasingly crowded market, staying competitive requires implementing new digital technologies quickly. For example, enabling users to access inventory data and adjust financing decisions from the dealership floor on mobile or web. DataScan adopted a variety of cloud and mobile technologies to meet these demands. Anypoint Platform will serve as the platform to connect these new technologies, enabling DataScan to modernize its solutions to provide an industry leading customer experience.

API-led connectivity, a modern approach to connecting data and applications through a series of reusable APIs, will allow DataScan to unlock systems without losing security or control. This approach will enable DataScan to gain greater flexibility to customize user interfaces, integrate third-party vendors, and increase the speed at which the company is able to launch new digital and mobile channels. By making applications, data and devices pluggable and reusable, DataScan is building an application network to drive innovation and agility at scale, launch new products, increase revenue opportunities, and improve the customer experience.

“Today’s leading financial services institutions count on us to deliver the technology and insights that drive their businesses,” said JD Grogan, vice president of technology, DataScan. “With an API-led approach, we can enable our clients to have actionable data at their fingertips and our platform can quickly adapt to address the changing needs of the market.
