Planning for APIs - a whitepaper to support the Digital Service Revolution with Canada’s Vision for Gover nment as a Platform (French)
APIs used to strictly belong to the technical domain, where developers would use them to access and/or extend application functionality using low level programmatic libraries. As such, the actual business value of APIs was realized more or less indirectly through enhanced application functionality. Things have changed though with the exponential growth of mobile applications and cloud based services. APIs (or Web APIs, to be more accurate) have emerged as strategic digital assets that have become an integral part of many service providers’ business models. It is TBS’s intent to expand upon its Government Open Data initiative to exploit the full potential of APIs and this document is a first step towards that goal. The GC API White Paper 3rd draft is published here for your review and comments. We look forward to receiving your feedback.
