As we embark into a new era of integration and connectivity, it is key to effectively communicate an API strategy. An API strategy needs to be clear, concise and executable.
An API strategy should simply answer these questions:
Why are we building API's?
How are we building API's?
What are we building API's to expose?
These answers should be concise and to the point. The answers should not be overly detailed. The detailed answers to these questions may differ slightly from different viewpoints like organizational boundaries or specific functions within an organization.
An API strategy should align with our industry and the principles of our company. The ability to execute is the most important aspect of our API strategy.
