Identifying API Use Cases in Automotive – White paper available

By Alan Glickenhouse posted Wed November 02, 2016 03:05 PM

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


One 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



Of course for the automotive industry there are many scenarios for APIs related to the “connected car”.  In addition to these we cover use cases across a wide variety of scenarios – internal, partnering, social, analytics, and more.

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-authors for this paper are Dean Murphy who is the Industrial Sector leader for Mobile API Economy solutions and Joel Pinto who is the Worldwide Marketing Manager for several industries covering Hybrid Cloud Integration.
