Designing API-First Enterprise Architectures on Azure

By: Subhajit Chatterjee

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.

In this chapter, you understood the importance of having the right set of DevOps practices. DevOps is a combination of people, processes, and technology. So, enterprises must establish the right mindset and orientation to go about implementing the practices with due diligence. It's crucial to have a vision and foresight as the results will be seen in the long term. There has been sufficient research already conducted in this space and there is guidance available for teams to absorb, learn, and march forward in the right direction.

All developers must transform themselves into DevOps engineers, to equip themselves with the concepts and practices that are necessary to master to build solutions for the cloud.

In the next chapter, we shall look at some of the tools that are useful for designing, building, and testing API-led architectures.
