Business capabilities delivered as API products are fast becoming the foundation of the digital economy and connected commerce. API-driven platforms allow businesses to accelerate the pace of innovation, excel at their core competencies, and collaborate with other businesses for co-creating value. APIs have marked an explosive growth, and established an increasing acceptance of their necessity. API usability is now a key differentiator for companies that want to dominate their industry or for start-ups that want to establish their innovative offerings.

Today's digital businesses are powered by applications and experiences that are composed of business capabilities realized as APIs. These APIs, implemented by service applications, may use other APIs to achieve their business function. Thus, any given customer experience is fueled by a complex tiered orchestration of multiple services, by service providers across different business and infrastructure capabilities.

However, as the number of APIs powering our businesses explode, how to model them right at scale is still a struggle. With a design-first approach, the powerful notions of APIs-as-products, business capability modeling, and bounded contexts conflate in interesting ways. How do we combine the best of these ideas to come up with a modeling approach that works at multiple levels of abstraction, providing semantic transparency and discoverability to all stakeholders, both on publishing and consuming sides?
