We believe that APIs are the building blocks of digital transformation. We believe that digital business means business with and through APIs. This is why we created this course. To help you succeed in a digital world.
In this course we teach you how to design businesses with APIs. APIs are the technical core of your digital business. In fact, APIs can be used to improve every aspect of your existing business. And in some situations, APIs enable completely new businesses, businesses that would not have been possible without APIs.
You cannot see the APIs from the outside. But they make all things digital possible under the hood. So APIs come from the IT and technology side. But quite recently APIs have evolved from "something that the techies do" to a product with serious business value. The IPOs of API-based companies, such as Twilio, are examples of that mind shift.
In this course you will learn to model and think about a business with a powerful tool: the Business Model Canvas. While there are many books and courses explaining the Business Model Canvas, we show how to use this tool to model digital transformation.
In this course you will learn how to leverage APIs in your strategy. APIs are the digital building blocks, which you can leverage to pick the low hanging digital fruits.
Let me ask you a couple of questions:
Are you a founder of a digital venture?
Are you working for an existing corporation with a digital strategy?
Are you creating APIs and everyone tells you that you can make business with APIs and earn money with APIs?
If any of the above questions rings true, then this course is made for you.
