API Driven Development
The increased availability of mobile apps, cloud services, developer communities and IoT (Internet of Things) is encouraging organisations to distribute and expose valuable data through APIs.
By exposing data and application functionality to external users, apps and machine, organisations can re-shape business models into an extensible platform that can take advantage of new routes to market and revenue streams.
Blue Turtle provides a comprehensive set of solutions that externalise APIs in a secure, reliable and manageable way. Our solutions are fully integrated and designed for the enterprise to address mobile app development, bring your own device (BYOD), cloud connectivity, partner and cross-divisional SOA integration and API developer on-boarding.
