Episode 3: Capture and Manage Complexity for Digital Success

Hosted by digitalML
Reading Time: 2 minutes

APIs enable digital, but as your API program matures, so does its complexity – here’s how to capture and manage that complexity to minimize technical debt. 

Being digital in the enterprise means being reliant; reliant on internal and external providers of functionality, on back-ends that aren’t always built for nice front ends, on planned and unplanned changes. 

But, as your catalog of APIs, Services, and Events grows to help deliver digital initiatives quickly, so does its complexity. Questions arise such as:

  •  How to enrich your catalog and ensure it’s always in sync – and therefore properly unlocking data, logic, and functions that power your digital products and services
  • How to understand the impacts of changes to your APIs as you iterate and evolve over time
  • How are all your APIs interacting 
Capturing and managing this complexity is key to remaining agile and minimizing technical debt as you scale.


Download episode 3 of digitalML’s Becoming a Digital Enterprise webinar series to learn the recommended approach to ensuring this catalog enrichment and complexity management. We’ll be covering best practices around:

  • API change management
  • Upstream and downstream considerations and API dependencies
  • API version management and retirement planning
  • API mapping, transformation and orchestration
  • Provider and consumer lineages 
  • Internal audits and regulatory reporting 
  • Core system and environment changes
