OpenGov: API Management for Agile Development

OpenGov: API Management for Agile Development

We spoke with Tim Rodriguez, principal engineer at OpenGov Inc., about how API management simplified interactions with the company's backend systems and accelerated partner integration. OpenGov develops cloud-based software for public sector budgeting, reporting, and open data.

Partner integrations have accelerated dramatically with the Apigee API platform, he said. With one particular partner who requested access to OpenGov's APIs, Rodriguez said:

"We had the Apigee solution in place ... we said here's our portal, and we only needed one day of engineering time, and they've been self-service ever since." 

"What used to take two to four weeks per partner has been reduced to one day."
