What Is API-Led — An Architectural Approach by Luis Weir


Let’s look at this excerpt to find out what API-led means and explore the architectural decisions, implementation patterns, and more.

As APIs open doors to information and functionality, they move well beyond being merely technical interfaces to becoming central actors in new digital business models. However, for such business models to be effective and successful, technical teams are confronted with the unique challenge of API-enabling systems that weren’t necessarily built to provide real-time access. Because of this, there are several implementations beyond the obvious that must be catered for in order to create APIs that are easy to use and can truly scale to handle the sort of volumes expected from real-time systems.

This article is an excerpt from the book Enterprise API Management written by Luis Weir. This book explores the architectural decisions, implementation patterns, and management practices for successful enterprise APIs. This article elaborates on the core concepts and capabilities required to implement API-led architectures. Read the complete article here.
