A new business opportunity requires research to weigh risk and reward, and understand the time frame for return on that opportunity. When you, as the decision-maker, decide to act, liquidity is important. If capital is tied up in other investments, the ability to pursue a new one is lost.
There is untapped value in your IBM® z/OS® assets. APIs are the way to extract and grow that value:
- APIs provide access to systems and data on z/OS that otherwise require specialized knowledge and skills to reach.
- Interfaces based on REST and JSON are highly consumable, providing near universal access.
- The API economy enables further opportunity by providing a mechanism through which your data and services can be integrated with those of business partners in web and mobile applications.
- Using z/OS Connect to develop APIs for your z/OS assets is easy, cost-effective, and secure.
Explore how to build an enterprise API strategy and tap into your z/OS assets with this IBM Redbooks® Point-of-View publication.
