The world of enterprise IT is changing, fast. Keep up.
Sydney, 3 November 2016 – CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) has today announced its acceptance onto the newly created Registered Supplier Lists for Application Programming Interface (API) Management for the NSW government. These newly developed lists enable NSW government agencies to easily access pre-screened and pre-approved software vendors for their API Management needs.
CA Technologies has been appointed to both the base list for contracts up to $150,000 and the advanced list, for contracts worth $150,000 or more.
APIs are the building blocks of digital transformation as they help organisations build ideas quickly, deliver better customer experiences faster and enable piece-by-piece digital transformation, mitigating risk.
The API Management Registered Supplier Lists provide NSW government agencies with the peace of mind that they are choosing experienced vendors with proven API technology to help them successfully engage in the NSW government’s open data initiative.
According to the recently updated NSW Government’s Open Data Policy, open data “provides the intelligence for insight, invention and exploration that translate into better products and services that improve everyday life and encourage business growth.” The policy also sites that open data has a significant impact in four key areas – improving government, empowering citizens, creating opportunity and solving problems.
“Government agencies can now confidently use CA Technologies pre-approved API Management solutions to open their data to bring multiple online systems together, effectively enabling a seamless digital experience for constituents,” said Paul Kastner, Solutions Lead, API Management for CA Technologies, Australia and New Zealand.
“To provide new and better services to citizens, the NSW government is leading the way with its Open Data initiative, by increasingly leveraging API Management to securely share data. Exposing and integrating data via APIs enables the Lego-like ‘snapping-in’ of new services, without impact to existing back-end legacy systems, and without the very high costs and long time frames associated with traditional integration programs.”
The NSW government worked with the Australian Information Industry Association to build its API framework, and to develop a set of standards for entry onto the API Advanced Registration Supplier Lists. CA Technologies was selected for the list based on its proven ability to meet, and exceed all criteria.
