Solution synopsis

To meet this growth, VDAB needed a secure and scalable platform. VDAB selected IBM’s API Connect platform to offer API’s to the outside world with minimal investment costs. 

Solution implementation 

The API Connect solution was gradually implemented in each environment, closely collaborating with the customer’s Infrastructure team, security architects and API developers. A few custom policies were developed for specific logging needs and supporting the Hypertext Application Language (HAL). A first API to be exposed to external partners was a good trigger to leverage the IBM API Connect solution right away.
