Telia required a unified digital platform to efficiently manage APIs.
In the absence of an enterprise-wide API management platform, it was challenging for the independent IT units and projects of telecommunications company Telia to collaborate meaningfully. There were no developer portals through which APIs could be accessed and externalized. Without a defined lifecycle management system and documentation process in place, the APIs could not be optimally reused. Telia, therefore, needed a centralized development and access platform to manage and create APIs for its partners, and in the process, enable prototyping.
TCS equips Telia with a robust API development and management platform.
TCS stepped in to help Telia build a centralized, cloud-based API development and management platform with hybrid architecture and micro gateways, leveraging Apigee Edge. This would accommodate capabilities and features to develop, discover, document, and reuse APIs.
Using a three-phased approach, TCS began the transformation process. The first phase defined API lifecycles, from development, release, management, to operations, and the tools required. This also required establishing governance guidelines in line with Telia’s existing policies. During the next phase, TCS built the development and testing pipeline, and automated the relevant processes. The final phase dealt with developing advanced capabilities like API analytics and integrated monitoring with third party tools.
Telia accelerates its digital journey with API management.
With TCS’ services, Telia was able to improve time to market, productivity, and cost efficiency. As a cloud-based solution, the Apigee API management platform was capable of integrating with third party vendors and extend Telia’s digital presence.
