Web Service Design and API Management

We have over 10 years of experience in the design and governance of Web services. DCA group served as technical lead for the AAIA Internet Parts Ordering and iShop industry standards. We have completed major projects in the CRM, Loyalty, ID Provisioning, Automotive Parts Ordering with responsibility to design the Web services interfaces for the application services.

Considerations include highly re-usable xml constructs, standardized error handling, operational health checking and flexible version management that allows for significant backward compatibility – simplifying the evolution of the APIs. We take advantage of UML models to document the behavior of the Services and XMLSpy to define xml artefacts required for the service definitions.
