Automation for Bigger-Brain Thinking

Faster Delivery with Fewer Errors

A rockstar developer can knock out 10 complex APIs in a year, maybe more — hey, we’re already impressed. But if most enterprises need 400-2,000 APIs to build out their API Catalog of digitized business capabilities, your rockstar developers are really going to appreciate a state of speed without bottlenecks.

Automating the Boring Workload

Fact: At this very moment, your developers are sitting on groundbreaking ideas that would bring enormous benefits to your company. Ideas that — if conditions were right — they could build in no time. But that’s just the problem. By calling the APIs rather than the backend systems, ignite gives developers days back every sprint; so beyond hitting MVPs — they’re bringing better customer experiences and more business value.

Building Digital Products that People Love to Use

Agile calls for collaborating with business to make world-class business-led products. Before, developers were the handbrake. Now, not so. There are no misinterpretations, or uncertainty about which API Products to build, now you’re even presented with the components so you can copy and paste only the code snippets you need so your applications can spring to life. 

Development Teams Demo

To show the role of development teams in ignite, this demo highlights a segment of the full end-to-end lifecycle, using a “Healthy Lifestyle” API Product as example. 

View to see how ignite API Products are developed in a fast, well-governed way, ensuring: 

  • Development teams can swiftly assign and prioritize tasks from one place – no more multi-versioned spreadsheets, docs, emails, and unnecessary meetings. ignite integrates with your Agile sprint planner. 
  • Developers are freed up to concentrate on the usage of the API, rather than solely the creation. ignite generates code quickly from the implementation design details, leaving more time to innovate and support the customer experience.
