Rawhide: API Edition

Cattle Drive

It’s a little known fact that data behaves a lot like a herd of cattle.

It needs to be herded by experts in order to get to the right places.

It can be compromised if that herding process isn’t being watched with an eagle eye. 

And it can overwhelm anyone trying to handle it on their own, or even with a team.

So while a university CIO might not immediately think of themselves as a cowboy or cowgirl, in a sense, that’s exactly what they are. Movin’ data between apps and databases, and makin’ sure data quality remains high. Whether that means manual data transfer or custom coding, it’s expensive, time-consumin’, and frustratin’, carnsarn it! 

If only the cowhands back in the day had had some way to automate cattle drives, life sure would have been a lot easier. Cattle moving smoothly from point to point on the trail, with no chance of mishaps, and no cowboy involvement required. 

Well, gosh darn it, you know what’s funny? That’s exactly what N2N’s Illuminate platform provides for today’s CIO cowboys! 

Just imagine how that old song Rawhide from the TV show might have sounded if CIOs had written it:

With a SaaS app preoccupation

Hell bent for integration

Wishin’ N2N was by my side

All this custom codin’

They’d replace by simply loadin’

The Illuminate platform with APIs!

Head ’em up, move ’em on

Move ’em on, head ’em up, APIs

Cut ’em out, write ’em in

Write ’em in, cut ’em out

Keep movin’, movin’, movin’

Though the Budget Committee’s disapprovin’

Keep them bits a-movin’, APIs

Why not try to automate it,

At low cost so they won’t hate it?

Then you can stop with all this strife!

The Committee’s calculatin’

The N2N team will be waitin’

Be waitin’ by the phone when you decide.

 

Move ’em on, head ’em up

Head ’em up, move ’em on

Move ’em on, head ’em up, APIs

Cut ’em out, Write ’em in

Write ’em in, cut ’em out

Cut ’em out, Write ’em in, APIs
