Unlock your Digital Transformation with APIs.
Expand market reach, foster innovation, enable bimodal IT, and lower the cost of integration.
The API Economy Platform Blueprint is a culmination of the IP, process, and knowledge we have accrued throughout developing
enterprise-class API solutions in the cloud, packaged up to accelerate your journey.
It can be configured to deploy specific API platform infrastructure according
to the underlying workloads supporting the APIs – including .NET operations, R models, or services requiring
complex data movement and processing activities.
It's based around Azure API Management, which provides the means to create and publish APIs, enforce their usage policies,
control access, support the subscriber community, collect and analyze usage statistics, and report on performance.
Choose your own language (C# / R)
Fully DevOps enabled
Industry hardened solutions & blueprints
Patterns for common workload scenarios
Built on first class Azure services
Integrate into wider Azure ecosystem
Secure APIs and embed policy & governance
Secure-by-default APIs, preventing unauthorised access, and protecting internal
systems from the outside world. Enforce and measure existing IT and business policies,
and report on how the APIs are being used.
Consolidate hetreogenous services
Hide the complexity of legacy internal systems, supporting their APIs
without having to rewrite them or migrate them to the cloud. Surface
.NET operations and R models through the same consistent, centralized API layer.
Streamline the route to production
DevOps enabled with fully version controlled cloud
infrastructure, change control quality controls, and automated deployments, providing
a frictonless path from feature development into production.
Boost your API economy
APIs are at the core of Digital Transformation – enabling the information flow throughout the digital feedback loop between customers and products.
From consumer devices, to the cloud, to the enterprise data center, and at all points in-between, APIs are an essential underpinning of our modern digital world.
For many organizations, APIs are now a critical component of solutions that impact the operational bottom line. This positive effect on an organizations profitability from APIs is known as The API Economy.
The API Economy Platform Blueprint takes away the risk and steep learning curve of bringing an API based proposition to market, allowing you to focus on building enterprise grade API solutions.
With built in support and fully functioning examples for .NET and R APIs, the blueprint provides clear guidance
for implementing specific workload scenarios so new features can be integrated rapidly and consistently.
If you'd like to know more about Digital Transformation, the API Economy & Azure API Management, we've created a short 5 minute essential guide video.
The API Economy Platform Blueprint provides a ready made solution architecture to host .NET operations and R models
through a consistent, centralized API layer.
Aberdeen Standard Investments saw the strategic need to deliver their services to partners and customers through public APIs.
They selected endjin's best-of-breed Azure reference architecture, security framework, blueprints, and implementation services to kick-start their API Management and Delivery programme.
Hymans Robertson knew that the value in their data and algorithms could enable new business models and coopetition opportunities.
With endjin's architecture blueprints, based on Azure PaaS and Microsoft R Server,
they could focus on developing their products rather than the underlying technology.
The API Economy Platform Blueprint can be purchased as a preconfigured set of core platform services which provides the ability to run .NET and R workloads automated through DevOps processes.
It comes with fully functioning example APIs in both C# and R to help you get going. We also provide extensive video labs that walk you through the platform including the creation of your first API.
Typically we help you develop one or more operations, or integrate existing systems if necessary. This helps us ensure your environment is configured for your specific needs and helps us to introduce the processes and knowledge that allow data teams to quickly become self-sufficient.
We also provide an "assess and invest" framework for measuring the current state of organizational maturity around supporting an API based business model.
The API Economy Platform fully supports bring-your-own-api scenarios. Through the Open API Specification, existing APIs can be documented and
automatically imported into the platform. We can also help you to enable your existing API for DevOps processes to fully integrate it into the wider platform.
Absolutely. With technologies like Azure Virtual Networks and
ExpressRoute, Azure API Management
can be configured to manage APIs that are not already accessible on the internet. Additionally, the entire API Management Gateway can be configured inside an internal virtual network to control access to the outside world.
