The combination of business functions from different companies offers immense potential for innovation and new business models. Entire, cross-industry ecosystems are emerging. If you want to be part of these ecosystems, you have to open up your business and think about publishing APIs. They offer well-defined endpoints and provide public access to business functions and objects. However, it’s important to consider that data is extremely valuable and highly sensitive for many organizations. Our field report shows how an automotive manufacturer’s car API is exposed using an API management platform. We discuss both, technical and organizational challenges and our best practices to solve them. Moreover, we want to talk about the increased demands for security, availability, and stability.
