API Software Business Requirements
$99 – $299
The API Software Business Requirements comprise essential features, and functions companies seek in an enterprise-grade API Platform to build, expose, integrate and manage APIs, an emerging and crucial capability in the enterprise integration landscape.
An API (Application Programming Interface) management platform is a software and infrastructure service that ensures the development, deployment, orchestration, and security of APIs of a company. It monitors the activity of the APIs and allows only authorized access to it. It also prohibits malicious activities and limits the number of queries sent by a single user.
While evaluating competing API Solutions, a pre-built and customizable business requirements list helps avoid countless whiteboarding sessions or relying on business domain experts for every functionality.
As a business analyst or a project manager, your role is to capture the business needs that necessitate a software platform. A comprehensive list of API Platform features and functionality will allow you to think holistically and customize the requirements to your company’s specific situation.
An enterprise’s typical business requirements for API solutions are listed in several categories and amount to about <XX> functional features. In addition, it also includes about 100 non-functional features. The deliverable consists of brief descriptions of each API platform business requirement. The goal is to offer a customizable, comprehensive list to allow you to tailor it to your enterprise needs. Please feel free to add, modify, delete or combine the list of items.
In addition, we also provide a simple template with a list of top API Platforms to enable you to conduct a comparative evaluation. The template is blank, is a starting point, and does not cover all the Solutions. You may include and exclude the appropriate tools that are under consideration in your enterprise.
The Business Requirements for API Platforms can be used as a starting point for issuing an RFP (Request for Proposal), evaluating competing API software tools, and as a springboard for documenting business and technical requirements.
Why should you pay for API Software Business Requirements?
Good question. Much information is available online – vendor websites, vendor review directories, and analyst reports. Vendor websites are primarily for promoting their wares. Many review websites focus on the overall experience and broad capabilities, not detailed features and functions. Analysts’ reports are expensive and do not provide fine-grain feature listings. Furthermore, if you and your team were to scrape and compile information from external sources, and conduct whiteboard requirements sessions internally, the time, effort, and expense would be exponentially expensive. Our features and functionality matrix provides a springboard for you to customize and tailor to your specific use cases and needs.

Can I see a Sample Deliverable?
We are sorry, but we cannot send or show sample deliverables. There are two reasons: A) The deliverables are our intellectual property, and we cannot share the same. B) While you may be a genuine buyer, our experience in the past has not been great with too many browsers and not many buyers. We believe the depth of the information in the product description and the snippets we provide are sufficient to understand the scope and quality of our products.
When can I access my deliverables?
We process each transaction manually and hence, processing a deliverable may take anywhere from a few minutes to up to a day. The reason is to ensure appropriate licensing and also validating the deliverables.
Where can I access my deliverables?
Your best bet is to log in to the portal and download the products from the included links. The links do not expire.
Are there any restrictions on Downloads?
Yes. You can only download the products three times. We believe that is sufficient for any genuine usage situation. Of course, once you download, you can save electronic copies to your computer or a cloud drive.
Can I share or sell the deliverables with anyone?
You can share the deliverables within a company for proper use. You cannot share the deliverables outside your company. Selling or giving away free is prohibited, as well.
Can we talk to you on the phone?
Not generally. Compared to our professional services fee, the price of our products is a fraction of what we charge for custom work. Hence, our business model does not support pre-sales support.
Do you offer orientation or support to understand and use your deliverables?
Yes, for a separate fee. You can hire our consultants for remote help and in some cases for onsite assistance. Please Contact Us.
