Transformation typically begins with the “ability to connect” and make available (expose) functionality and assets for consumption. This, in turn, enables better commerce and helps tap other businesses which give access to new categories of consumers.

APIs and Integration - as a means to connect internal and external ecosystems, are therefore the key ingredients to success for digital transformation initiatives. It becomes imperative that they are done right - all the way from strategy to execution.

According to a recent Gartner Magic Quadrant report on Full Life Cycle API Management, “It is impossible to provide the platform for any digital strategy, build ecosystems and run an effective API program, without full lifecycle API management.” This report from Gartner is a culmination of research in a specific market that provides a wide-angle view of relative positions of the market’s competitors. There are several vendors who provide different components, tools to address the steps towards going digital and a few who provide a comprehensive package that addresses enterprise needs from strategy design to enablement. THBS has been positioned as a Niche Player in Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Full Life Cycle API Management. It leads in the “Completeness of Vision” category among the Niche Players in this report.

According to Gartner Critical Capabilities, a companion research to Magic Quadrant, “By 2021, 65% of new applications will be built as a mesh of multichannel apps and multi-grained back-end services that communicate via APIs.”
