    Service Levels Case Study/Use Case example – How to use:

    Client Situation:

    ABC Corporation is a multinational technology company with a diverse portfolio of products and services. The company has recently launched a new open API (Application Programming Interface) platform to enable third-party developers to build applications and services using their data and capabilities. The open API platform has gained significant traction, with hundreds of developers and companies utilizing it for their applications. However, as more and more developers start using the platform, ABC Corporation is faced with the challenge of ensuring high performance and availability of their APIs. The company wants to establish appropriate service levels for their APIs to maintain a competitive edge in the market and meet the needs of their consumers.

    Consulting Methodology:

    To determine the appropriate service levels for ABC Corporation′s open APIs, our consulting team followed a systematic approach that included the following steps:

    1. Analyze Business Objectives: The first step was to understand the business objectives of ABC Corporation in launching the open API platform. This included understanding the target market, the competition, and the company′s vision for the platform.

    2. Assess Current Performance: Our team conducted a thorough analysis of the current performance of the open APIs. This involved reviewing response times, uptime, error rates, and other relevant metrics.

    3. Identify Key APIs: The next step was to identify the key APIs that are critical to the success of the platform. These could be based on factors such as usage, revenue generation, or customer feedback.

    4. Understand User Expectations: We conducted surveys and interviews with developers and users of the APIs to understand their expectations and requirements. This helped us in establishing realistic service level agreements (SLAs).

    5. Benchmark with Industry Standards: Our team researched industry standards and best practices for performance and availability of open APIs. This gave us a benchmark to compare our findings and recommendations.

    6. Develop Service Level Agreements: Based on the above steps, we recommended specific service levels for each API identified. This included response time, uptime, error rates, and other relevant metrics.

    7. Define Monitoring and Reporting Mechanism: We worked with the IT team at ABC Corporation to establish a system for monitoring the performance of the APIs and reporting any deviations from the agreed-upon service levels.


    1. Assessment report of current API performance.
    2. Service level agreements for each API.
    3. Monitoring and reporting mechanism.
    4. Recommendations for improving API performance, if required.

    Implementation Challenges:

    The implementation of our recommendations was not without its challenges. The main challenges we faced were:

    1. Technical Limitations: Despite our best efforts, some technical limitations could not be overcome in the short term. This meant that certain service levels could not be achieved immediately but needed to be worked on over time.

    2. Resource Constraints: ABC Corporation′s IT team was already working on several projects, and implementing our recommendations for the APIs meant diverting resources from those projects. This had an impact on the implementation timeline.


    1. Response Time: This is the time taken by the API to respond to a request. The recommended response time would vary based on the type of API and its usage.
    2. Uptime: This is the percentage of time the API is available and performing as expected. Based on industry standards, an API should have an uptime of at least 99.9%.
    3. Error Rates: This metric measures the percentage of requests that fail due to errors. The recommended error rate should be less than 0.5%.

    Management Considerations:

    1. Continuous Monitoring and Improvement: It is essential to continuously monitor the performance of the APIs and make improvements wherever necessary. This will help in maintaining high service levels and meeting user expectations.

    2. Collaboration between IT and Business Teams: The IT team at ABC Corporation needs to work closely with the business teams to prioritize which APIs need to be optimized and to understand the impact of any technical limitations on the business.

    3. Budget Allocation: The recommendations for improving API performance may require additional resources and investments. Therefore, it is important to allocate a budget for implementing these recommendations.


    In conclusion, our consulting team was able to establish appropriate service levels for ABC Corporation′s open APIs by following a systematic approach that involved understanding business objectives, assessing current performance, benchmarking with industry standards, and collaborating with the IT team for implementation. Continuous monitoring and improvement of the APIs is necessary to maintain high service levels and meet user expectations. As the open API platform continues to grow, it is imperative for ABC Corporation to regularly review and revise their service levels to stay competitive in the market.
