IBM API Connect Primary Use Case

KH
Manager Shared Integration Platform at a insurance company with 10,001+ employees

Right now, our use cases are all internal. It's all API socialization internally. With version 10, we'd like to go externally with an actual API marketplace, however, we haven't gone there yet. 

I don't publish; I manage infrastructure. My role is to implement the infrastructure, maintain it, and enable the developers to leverage the technology.

CEO at Lopworks Limited

We have implemented this for four or five banks in Nigeria. The bulk of our clients are banks. We need determine if there are transaction capabilities from their back-end applications. If so, then we consume their APIs. For example, we have a logistics company who uses the bank's back-end API to complete their payments.

We specialize in application and cloud integration. 

We have clients deployed on-premise, on the cloud, and with hybrid cloud.

Lead Architect at a insurance company with 10,001+ employees

Our use case for this solution, depending on the API Connect centralized team, is for registering any APIs. Once those are there, the main idea is that they have to be reusable and available like a global platform rather than just internal to your applications. API Connect does that, you register your API and it is available. Anybody who wants to use that function or that API can now go through API Connect with the current credentials and get access to your API. I'm a lead architect and we are customers of IBM API Connect.

We have done many implementations using API Connect. We work with some of the largest financial institutions in India, including life insurance companies and some of the banks. 

We have done most of them on-premise. The customers, because they are financial institutions and insurance companies, prefer to have this on their own premises and their own data centers.
