2022 has arrived, and the adoption of new technologies has kept pace; digital transformation has become relatively mainstream. However, you still see businesses running to play catch-up. As behemoths set the benchmarks, other businesses are inspired to follow suit and integrate enterprise themselves. While trying to restructure environments to eclipse business objectives, prioritizing connected experiences and efficiency seems like a smart move.
Speaking of benchmarks, the 2021 connectivity benchmark report concluded that enterprises are welcoming APIs in integration projects with open arms. Enterprises generate 27% of their revenue from API and relative implementations. However—and this is important—only one in three applications are integrated:
- Fifty-three percent of enterprises utilize and manage around 800 applications.
- Forty-three percent deploy more than a thousand applications.
The average lifespan of any one of these applications is about four years. As you may surmise, utilizing a thousand applications is an expensive habit to sustain; but fortunately, there are ways you can do something about it.

While choosing between integration strategies, weigh the possible courses of action that each one would provide—maybe even create a checklist of attributes— and select the one that proves most beneficial for your organization. One such course of action would be API-led connectivity; see below. Get in touch with an expert to learn more about your options and which one is most suitable for your enterprise.
API-led Connectivity: Why choose this path?
The API-led approach has become an increasingly popular strategy because the reformed technologies that enterprises are using tend to need APIs. Systems need to be integrated with APIs to unlock revenue streams, perceive customers better, and innovate quickly.
An API-led approach to IT projects makes sure you have:
- Built reusable assets that will save your organization time and money.
- Put together an infrastructure designed for governance, allowing you to manage a superset of API products in your organization.
- Constructed multiple layer security against attacks.
- Met the needs of your business.
- Completed your first projects on time and within budget.
As mentioned in the points above, once you’ve created the assets for your first project, you can repurpose them. With your newly reformed organizational capabilities, you can jog briskly on your first project and sprint on your second.
It’s evident that this approach frees a lot of resources, providing you with the time and opportunities to innovate and scale.
When compared to legacy or homegrown solutions, MuleSoft users concluded that the upswing in speed and agility—provided by API-led connectivity—multiplied project completion speeds three to five times and magnified team productivity by three hundred percent.
