If you’re a tech company, you are likely publishing or consuming API’s already. API World is the first large-scale conference and expo with the goal of organizing this new API Economy. The API World 2018 Conference and Expo was created with the mission to be neutral and facilitate connections, knowledge, trust and business within the developer community of API providers and consumers. If you are a coder, a startup or an enterprise that consumes or provides multiple APIs this is your event.
Decentralization: The move to APIs follows a technology-wide trend towards decentralization that includes agile methodologies and the DevOps movement. Beyond the decentralization of public web services, we are seeking the decoupling of monolithic API infrastructure into microservices. The rise of containers and kubernetes for rapid deployment, scalability, orchestration of microservices moves us further towards decentralization. The new movements towards API and microservice protocols and serverless architecture reinforces this move towards decentralization. The theme of API World 2018 is the move towards decentralization of both public-facing and internal API architecture.
Lou Powell, Founding Principle of Vanick will be presenting a PRO TALK in the Business of APIs Strategy track: Do I Have the Right API Strategy to Make My Business Successful?
Often we engage customers who are interested in digital transformation. They are implementing APIM platforms and tech stacks and building RESTish services with JSON payloads. Their strategy is to bring this new tech to the organization. But that strategy doesn’t work. Come to this session to learn why not and what you should be considering to build a successful API Program for your company.
