Today, government IT teams are expected to deliver more services with fewer resources. Consequently, many agencies have prioritized legacy modernization, interoperability, and shared service models as a means towards increasing IT delivery capacity. We propose that successful execution of these initiatives within the confines of a strictly managed budget requires a new approach to integration, one centered around APIs.
Our recommended approach, API-led connectivity, builds on the principles of re-use first outlined by SOA, while avoiding many of the pitfalls that limited the success of heavyweight SOA implementations.
In this whitepaper, you will learn:

Digital transformation (DX) is the continuous process by which enterprises adapt to or drive disruptive change by leveraging digital competencies, such as harnessing sensor data or using location, customer profile, and a mobile app to make shopping recommendations. DX reshapes the organization's culture where required; leverages existing processes, systems, and assets; and creates net-new digital capabilities as needed.
With DX, there is the need to embrace new business models and new architectures and technologies that will help an enterprise with customer-facing innovation as well as transition existing systems, processes, organization structure, and relationships to support the transformation.
It seems that with each passing year the speed at which new and emerging technologies are transforming business increases in almost direct proportion to impact.
