Organizations using APIs as part of their digital platform strategy can expect to see a strong improvement in business performance.
Adopting APIs results in a measurable increase in market capitalization. In addition, you can expect to see lower maintenance costs, more innovation and happier customers. You can use existing applications to build your platform with, such as Salesforce, or create your own from scratch. In either case, the power of the platform lies in the API integration layer and the capablity to package and repackage your data assets repeatably.
Digital platforms can be accessed by many different stakeholders in different ways, depending on their needs.
For example, corporate clients may require one view to access specific capabilities that allow them to carry out business operations, whereas consumers may require a different view, perhaps via online access to view their account information and interact with the platform. Onboarding customers and partners must be quick and easy to allow your platform to scale quickly. This is made possible through the SPINR platform, which also allows developers from different organizations to collaborate through documentation, tooling, an SDK and support.
As well as providing access, organizations must ensure governance and security.
SPINR allows you to extend your existing security and governance framework into the API layer. As APIs are reusable they become the building blocks to define how data is accessed, exposed and shared. SPINR provides you with this modular infrastructure to enable your digital platform, making it easy to create, change and monetize new capabilities. Data views are also easy for you to work with and manipulate, so you can remove fields containig personally identifiable information (PII) ensuring they are not exposed to any third party.
