• APIOps Cycles for Lean API Development

    Great APIs need skilled people and a good method. Skills include business, product management, design and technology professionals. The method needs to be vendor & technology-neutral. The result? Business-oriented and manageable APIs faster.

  • Why APIOps Cycles?

    It fits many needs

    it can be used for designing API solution or strategy not just for designing and developing a single API

    It's collaborative

    and makes sense to people who are not into software development and APIs

    It's faster

    by making sure everyone understands what we are doing and we design and build only what we need

    It's Lean

    by focusing on the right things we eliminate the 8 wastes of Lean management and reduce lifetime costs of our APIs

    It's business-oriented

    if your API doesn't have a clear business model or serve a customer need, you are wasting time, money or other valuables by building it

    It's openly licensed

    the basic method is free, use it or suggest improvements
