API Management Governance
APIs Are Different Than Integration
Moving away from centralized SOA governance
APIs provide accessibility to valuable, yet sensitive, business data that needs protection. This naturally raises governance concerns and issues. A good API management platform provides a secure, single platform that allows organizations to innovate, adapt to changing needs, and share data at an accelerated pace. But API governance is different from SOA governance, because a centralized governance process owned by a special architectural team in IT cannot maintain an iron grip on agile and decentralized API-first architectures.
The eBook "APIs are Different than Integration" explores how services creation is a natural part of the software development process; it happens ad-hoc and it’s prolific. API design and development is now every developer’s job. A centralized services governance process, owned by a special architectural team in IT, cannot maintain an iron grip on agile and decentralized API-first architectures.
