The Composable Enterprise

APIs at the heart of every journey to the Composable Enterprise

At Deloitte Digital we believe that Integration (APIs) and the Composable Enterprise go hand in hand. Achieving a Composable Enterprise is a critical goal for organizations in the digital age, as it allows for flexibility, scalability, and adaptability in the face of changing business needs. One key aspect of achieving a Composable Enterprise is having a good IT integration and API strategy in place.

The benefits of a good integration strategy

An IT integration strategy refers to the plan and processes an organization puts in place to ensure that its systems and technologies work together seamlessly. This includes ensuring that data can be easily shared and exchanged between different systems. Moreover, it is important that systems can be easily integrated and reconfigured when needed, for instance by adding new systems or technologies into the existing infrastructure.

Allowing for adaptability and scalability

Having this strategy in place is essential for achieving a Composable Enterprise because it makes a system easily adaptable and reconfigurable. A good integration strategy makes an organization more capable to respond to changing business needs and it promotes scalability by making it easy and overall faster to add new systems and capabilities as the organization grows. This ensures that the organization's systems can handle an increase in demand without requiring a complete redesign of existing systems.

Innovation integrated

Over the past years, we have seen that a well-defined integration or API strategy also supports our customer’s innovation capability by making it easy to try out new systems and technologies. It allows organizations to experiment with new ideas and approaches, and quickly pivot if they are not working as expected. Organizations can support digital transformation by making it easy to integrate new technologies and platforms, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and the Internet of Things. We have seen our customers leverage this to take advantage of new technologies to improve efficiency, increase competitiveness, and drive growth.
