API Centric Architecture

APIs are Different than Integration

Why it's the new application architecture

APIs are now the foundation for the development of scalable and productive enterprise applications. The requirements for highly personalized, contextually aware, predictive applications delivered to different types of clients with higher levels of scale have pushed application architecture to move beyond traditional web application to a focus on API-centric architecture.

Apigee's API Management Platform, Edge, allows today's API-centric architecture to:

  • consume and produce APIs
  • connect to clients on the front end
  • integrate internal backend systems
  • enable side access to other applications

Powering interactions through apps requires a new architecture. Read more about the move to API-centric architecture by downloading the eBook.
