(2) Summary

APIs are the connective fabric that powers digital transformation. Managing APIs well is essential in order to keep track of the large and continuously growing landscape of APIs in large organizations. As large organizations increasingly embark on digital transformation journeys, patterns and practices emerge, such as products as APIs, API first, API guidelines, API governance, and API platforms. Continuous API Management (CAM) focuses both on individual APIs and on the API landscape and helps organizations to better manage and evolve their digital capabilities. As a way to better assess the current status and to define a way forward, there are five CAM compasses that help organizations with API strategy, program, and landscape, and with individual API products as well as with their API consumption practices. Based on these compasses and the pillars of digital transformation (business, organization, technology), we can show how API initiatives in large organizations get underway and start delivering value to the organization from the very beginning.

(22) Transaction Costs Define Business

A firm is likely therefore to emerge in those cases where a very short term contract would be unsatisfactory. […]
We may sum up this […] argument by saying that the operation of a market costs something and by forming an organisation and allowing some authority (an entrepreneur) to direct the resources, certain marketing costs are saved. The entrepreneur has to carry out his function at less cost, taking into account the fact that he may get factors of production at a lower price than the market transactions which he supersedes, because it is always possible to revert to the open market if he fails to do this.
