How Can ignite Help Me?

Through governance, speed & innovation

Innovation at speed needs governance to avoid disasters. Despite the common belief that it slows progress, ignite customers find that with governance that’s baked in to the lifecycle, you can unlock your speediest API launches to date.

Enabling collaboration between business and IT

The self-serviceable service catalog aligns Business and IT teams by providing a clear holistic view of their assets. Business-led APIs are organized from the outside-in, by the business capabilities they support. This paves the way for clear priorities, engaged Lines of Business, and mass enterprise adoption.

Design-led API strategy

ignite’s unique focus on design means every API in your API Catalog stays tied to your Domain-Based Information Models. It also means every API is overlaid with a rich set of metadata, including SLAs and NFRs. By mapping these services to the same definition and eliminating any manual creation of APIs, you’re unlocking API reusability and global, holistic visibility.
