Sample text

The bridge between the two companies’ work is the private API, which enabled Bottle Rocket’s code to access NPR’s content in a very powerful and scalable way. Supporting Partner Relationships Private APIs can be used to create apps that support partner relationships. This model works extremely well when a partner has a business reason to use the API to create an app but lacks the technology skills to create the apps. The owner of the business assets or the provider of the API can arrange for developers to create the app so that the partner can put it to use.

One of the main goals of private APIs is to end bottlenecks, where groups with special expertise tightly control assets. By opening up access to assets to any (and potentially every) group within the organization, the assets can be used to their fullest potential. Currently, the most influential example of this kind of leverage power is in exposing valuable assets through an API to mobile development teams. Once the API is established and in full swing, all mobile teams can work on their own cycles to build the products that they need, without waiting as much on changes from dependent services like an internal database application.

There is often a pent-up demand for access to the business assets that are exposed in an API that leads to a quick return on any investment. Private APIs can help simplify an IT infrastructure to meet that demand. • Private APIs can improve business development as they make it much easier and faster for partners to integrate (with the added benefit of making your service more sticky), requiring relatively little oversight and time from your own internal resources. In essence, while public APIs have raised awareness about the value of APIs, the use of private APIs can improve the way that technology serves business and create tremendous value for the companies who understand how to use them.
