Enterprise Needs for Enterprise APIs

Enterprises however, have to approach their API strategy differently than smaller companies.  For startups, getting recognition, traction and customers is most important.  Allowing as many people as possible to use their API makes the most sense

For enterprises, the goal is to increase internal efficiency as well as expand brand presence without diluting it. Their API strategy, therefore, has to be segmented.

To tailor an API strategy to their needs, large companies need to think about what data/services they can provide to all of their audiences, then segment accessibility of the API based on the audience.

However, the concept of determining who should have access to your API, depending on how important or sensitive your data is, is applicable to the majority of enterprises.
