CA Technologies API Management Helps Drive Business Growth with 97 Percent Improvement in Application Time-to-Market

New Delhi, India, June 22, 2015: A recent study shows CA API Management helps drive business growth by improving the time-to-market for revenue-generating applications that depend on APIs. Results show a 97 percent time improvement to deploy apps that require integration with multiple data sets—going from 90 days to three days using CA’s API solutions. The study, “The Total Economic Impact of CA Technologies CA API Management,” conducted by Forrester Consulting and commissioned by CA Technologies, provides analysis from Forrester based on in-depth interviews with CA API Management customers.

Consumer and employee appetite for more applications is growing and 94 percent of business executives said they faced increased pressure to release apps more quickly. APIs are being used to help speed app development and delivery.

“APIs are a cornerstone for innovation and business growth in the application economy. Given the current business dynamics, organizations need to constantly look for new ways to engage with their key stakeholders including customers, partners & employees to generate revenue opportunities using connected devices, big data & analytics. The importance of APIs are increasingly being felt today since we are undergoing a revolution in the way software is developed and deployed and APIs enable the same by acting as a catalyst”, said Vic Mankotia, vice president, Security and API Management, Asia Pacific & Japan

CA API Management delivers cross-functional benefit across a variety of users including the developer building the apps, the business executive who owns the new business service, and enterprise architect responsible for managing and securing the API.  It helps companies meet the surge in demand to deploy apps quickly while also reducing the time and effort required to manage APIs and deliver tangible return on investment (ROI) for customers.

Further value can be found in CA API Management’s speed in transforming data to help ensure smooth application integration.  Analysis showed “a reduction in time to perform data transformations from six weeks to two days due to easier back-end integration with legacy systems. For example, XML transformations used to be more difficult and time-consuming prior to CA API Management. Because the platform has lightweight ESB capabilities, these transformations are performed 94% more quickly,” the Forrester Consulting study stated.

The study also found key additional benefits around CA API Management:

  • Financial value: The three-year, risk-adjusted analysis showed a 275 percent ROI and a payback period of 12 months.
  • Improved productivity: The average time required to create API policies decreased from 8 hours to 20 minutes (96%), improving the productivity of the API architect.
  • Easier maintenance: With CA API Management, customers received easier ongoing policy maintenance and support, requiring only 50% of the time as before because of better tools.
  • New revenue streams: Some customers could increase ROI an additional 70 percent if they are using CA API Management to open up data and monetize APIs.
