Hi peers,

I work as Enterprise API Architect at a retailer company with 10,000+ employees.

I would like to discuss the following: What should be the key focus areas of an API strategy of an organization?

In my POV, the key areas alongside People, Process & Technology, the focus should be around:

a) Developer experience

b) API management

c) Business alignment 

What do you guys suggest?
