Overview of this book

API-centric architectures are foundational to delivering omnichannel experiences for an enterprise. With this book, developers will learn techniques to design loosely coupled, cloud-based, business-tier interfaces that can be consumed by a variety of client applications. Using real-world examples and case studies, the book helps you get to grips with the cloudbased design and implementation of reliable and resilient API-centric solutions. Starting with the evolution of enterprise applications, you'll learn how API-based integration architectures drive digital transformation. You'll then learn about the important principles and practices that apply to cloud-based API architectures and advance to exploring the different architecture styles and their implementation in Azure. This book is written from a practitioner's point of view, so you'll discover ideas and practices that have worked successfully in various customer scenarios. By the end of this book, you'll be able to architect, design, deploy, and monetize your API solutions in the Azure cloud while implementing best practices and industry standards.

Business objectives and key results

As we have understood in the previous chapters, enterprise initiatives are usually prioritized based on the business outcomes – some of them are immediate while others are more long-term. Hence, it is important to study the typical Objectives and Key Results Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) that may apply to any enterprise context and how they map to the various DevOps practices that must be implemented by the development teams.

Some of the important objectives and key results are as follows:

In the next section, we will explore the DevOps Dojo framework introduced by Microsoft to evaluate how the OKRs map to the various capabilities.
