Enabling roles across both Business and IT when it comes to API and Service Development is key for:

  • A collaborative API and Service lifecycle
  • Ensuring speed and scale, while delivering reliable, reusable, and well-governed APIs and Services
  • Achieving digital maturity where multiple roles across the enterprise are providing and consuming APIs

The ignite platform supports two approaches to this role enablement – top-down and bottom-up API development.

Top-down development involves a domain driven design/product-driven approach to API design and development, and utilizes the enforcement of API standards through governance compliance checks, and encouragement of reuse of common data elements, so that service documentation is normalized and consistent for your developers.

In bottom-up development, you’re allowing your development team to work in the tools and environment they’re familiar with, while also allowing, through integration and import of the raw service documentation, developers to contribute to populating your Holistic Catalog.

This video demonstrates how the ignite platform supports both these approaches simultaneously, and provides flexibility for you to move to a more top-down development approach over time.
