Why you Probably Don’t Need an API Strategy
The point of the article, “In pursuing that route, most companies should not be discussing their “API Strategy,” they should be talking about their API as a tactic in support of their broader business strategy and objectives,” I tend to agree with. Strategy, for me, focuses on the making or distribution of a product. In open source, that dyad is implicitly involves the constitution of a collaborative network, a community. Constituting such a community is a strategy because it comes into being, as as such, in a milieu of contestation and competition.
