API Consulting: Get the Expert Guidance You Need

Most applications need to interact and exchange information with other software solutions. Application programming interfaces (API) make that possible with the implementation of a complex set of communication protocols, permissions, and subroutines. Creating APIs is an important, specialized discipline that can benefit from the expert guidance of an API consulting services partner.

In too many development operations, APIs are treated as an afterthought to the applications they connect. Companies make developers responsible for APIs without considering the business needs they have to satisfy. Often, the requirements are not clearly defined, and the resulting APIs lack essential capabilities or are hard to adapt when applications change. In many cases, a poor understanding of business conditions leads developers to inadvertently clash with the interests of data and application security as they create APIs that are overly broad in giving access to data.

Building your agile API practice

Tiempo API specialists often consult with clients who want to ensure the optimal performance of robust APIs. Tiempo technologists guide your teams through all business and technical aspects of API development. They also make sure that interactions and communications are productive and keep the project flow going.

We commonly introduce an additional role to the team—a product manager or business analyst who can gather the business requirements for APIs and translate them into agile development. Working remotely or onsite, we help you implement an API development process that resembles what Tiempo follows in our own, API projects:

  • Analyze: Together with your business analyst, we collect and document all API business requirements and technical conditions, including data access needs, data protection and management policies, and security standards, along with appropriate permissions and authentication. We review your development environment to identify and remedy needless complications and inefficiencies.
  • Create: By observing and guiding your developers, we help them perform API development, testing, and deployment, using an agile approach that fits your applications and culture.
  • Control: We facilitate the interactions and communications among your API developers and application product owners to ensure that the new or re-created APIs have optimal scalability, performance, and dependability.
  • Consume: Once you publish an API, you transition to lifecycle management in sync with the application. Tiempo prepares your team to perform efficient API management and make upgrades and changes painless.
