API Integration – The Key Accelerator for Digital Transformation

Digital transformation is still a hot topic trending across the globe. With the growing number of digital devices and other technological advancements, organizations are forced to transform digitally and embrace digitalization in order to serve the tech savvy customers. But the biggest challenge that businesses face is to retain the existing customers and attract new ones because of the direct impact of digital initiatives on customer satisfaction and customer experience.

Digital Transformation – Where to Begin?

According to an Altimeter analysis, digital acceleration is possible only when there is a change in,

  • Organization’s innovational aspirations,
  • IT infrastructure through modernization and
  • Improving operational agility.

Top Five Digital Challenges for Enterprises

Digital transformation does not stop with just building mobile apps. Enterprises should be willing to experiment beyond mobile apps. Some of the top challenges that enterprises face and because of which they cannot achieve a digital transformation are,

  1. Resistance to change
  2. Lack of digital strategy
  3. Inadequate data and operational services
  4. Legacy technology stack
  5. Inefficient business model

Role of API and Integration for Digital Services

API and integration play a major role in connecting the technology and infrastructure for delivering a seamless digital solution. Without APIs and integration, it is difficult for the legacy assets to communicate with the digital devices. While APIs provide the necessary accessibility to consumers which could be a smart device, a mobile app or even a third party solution, data integration services act as a middleware between the APIs and the legacy assets for enabling data extraction. Hence, data integration and APIs are crucial for the changing dynamics of the business assets and increasing the efficiency of the digital devices.
