Simplify and Succeed: Navigating the API Landscape for Small to Midsize Businesses

Two men discussing business in front of a large window.

When diving into the realm of API architecture, it’s easy to be swamped with a myriad of hot topics and trends. From microservices architecture to API gateways, OpenAPI, Swagger, REST, and beyond, the landscape can seem overwhelmingly complex. However, amidst this sea of information, it’s essential to know what’s necessary for your business needs.

The Time Crunch: Solutions for Limited IT Teams

For the majority of small to midsize businesses, particularly those leveraging IBM i applications, simplicity is supreme. Unlike larger enterprises with extensive resources and complex infrastructures, these companies often run with limited IT teams wearing multiple hats. In many cases, a single individual is tasked with keeping servers, networks, and development duties, leaving little room for managing intricate architectures.  

Time is precious in these environments and with IT staff stretched thin, the focus is primarily on keeping existing systems operational and occasionally enhancing them. In this context, introducing a convoluted API architecture is impractical and unsustainable. Contrary to popular belief, not every business faces sky-high transaction volumes needing elaborate systems. While scalability is paramount for certain industries, the reality is that most small shops will never meet the need to process thousands of transactions per second. For IBM i customers, whose systems often operate well below capacity, a straightforward API server can efficiently handle the workload without adding unnecessary layers of complexity.

For many businesses, their priority is making their goods, not navigating intricate code structures – simplicity is the key to their success.
