My recent work has been around use cases that have to do with API’s and their effect on user experience but also the effect on business to business relationships. This is basically where your web application performance becomes dependent on some other system that is outside of your control or your application impacts another web application’s performance. It’s interesting, from a technologist perspective, to look at the many different ways that websites interact with other businesses through the use of APIs. There are the obvious use cases like native mobile applications that allow devices to interact through APIs instead of using web pages. There are also less obvious use cases such as an application that has to validate a business as part of an online process where part of the validation requires the application to do a Federal Tax ID lookup with the IRS.
