Identifying API Use Cases in Telecommunications – White paper available

By Alan Glickenhouse posted Mon September 12, 2016 06:13 PM

The next paper in the industry use case series is now available and focuses on the Telecommunications industry.

telecomOne of the most common discussions I have with any business is about API use cases related to industry specific scenarios – their scenarios.  We are making the information shared in these discussions more accessible to everyone by publishing a series of industry specific white papers covering these and related topics.  Each white paper has a consistent format that includes:

  • Identifying the common business drivers for API initiatives

  • Describing an API identification methodology

  • Supplying industry-specific examples using the methodology

  • Discussing the current state of regulatory requirements and industry standards for APIs

  • Providing recommendations for starting an API initiative


I am excited to have worked with industry subject matter experts to author each paper in this series.  In each case my co-authors bring years of real world industry experience working with companies in the industry.  My co-author for this paper is Linda Jones who is the Communications Sector Leader for Worldwide Mobile API Economy Solutions.  In the Telecom paper we cover use cases across a wide variety of scenarios – internal, partnering, social, analytics, and more.
