When the COVID-19 pandemic first hit the headlines last year, nobody could have imagined the impact it would have on the world. One year later, we still seem to have been caught unaware. There are many things we don’t yet know about the virus. But we do know that it has changed the way we view the healthcare system, education, and the commercial sector across the planet. However, the digital landscape is the area that has been most clearly affected by the pandemic.
APIs were launched into the digital world in the 1990s and revolutionized the process of digital transformation. Integration became normalized and even commonplace and continued to evolve, bringing much-needed speed and agility.
At the present, the API economy continues to grow and strengthen. As digital transformation continues its journey, API-enabled digital channels like smart home devices have become typical. Moreover, the importance of APIs in people’s everyday lives is only increasing. While this may seem like a great thing in terms of modernity and progress, some issues have to be considered as integration may have its darker sides too.
Integration is a pretty expensive part of IT organizations. Instead of spending money on dealing with your integration needs, why not use the resources on something that increases your business’s profit and makes strides for the future?
Digital enterprises are becoming increasingly popular. After all, it is the era of digital transformation, and integration through APIs have become the norm for even the smallest of businesses. In fact, many traditional businesses have upgraded to online operations.
If the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that life as we know it is only possible because of digital transformation. Integration and APIs have made speed, agility, and connection possible on levels that we could have only dreamed about in the past.
Most businesses have switched to operating online, employees work from home, and the entire structure of organizations has shifted to accommodate the needs of the current climate. If you’re having trouble continuing the path of digital transformation, or you’re late to the party, here’s what you should do to get started.
