New integration projects start with the assumption of using APIs for application data, management, and monitoring. Creating consistent patterns of development and usage is the goal of API platforms. At Zilker, our consultants help customers create enterprise strength APIs. We recognize that this form of application integration plays a critical role in reducing the costs associated with onboarding new API consumers as well as managing access, managing security, and creating economies of scale.
