IT leaders are increasingly dependent on their development teams to drive business resiliency through creative innovation. Yet, with fewer resources and less time, those development teams struggle to support new initiatives. Organizations need to adopt efficiencies in technology to free developers to focus on projects that help keep the business relevant and agile.

Build Your Own Solution cloud API services enable development teams to get the next generation of enterprise applications to market faster, address new use cases and keep solutions current without the need to rewrite code, manage updates or take on infrastructure debt.

Business impacts

  • Custom applications

    Businesses often require custom software application development to keep pace with evolving market demands. Developing from scratch is a time-consuming headache. Leverage Information Management capabilities to easily customize applications.

  • Product enhancements

    Organizations want to extend their system investments with new capabilities. Platform upgrades are not always feasible, making a full system replacement the only option. Embed Information Management services to add new capabilities to any solution.

  • Content in context

    Business users need access to the information relevant to their tasks. Having to switch between applications to find what they need is inefficient. Use cloud API services with API integration to ensure information flows with processes.

  • Information security

    Organizations need to balance information security with user productivity. Keeping up with rapidly evolving governance requirements slows work down. Create risk-aware connectors that automatically manage information shared with specific applications.
