Presented by

About this talk

Hyper-competition and digital-first initiatives are forcing organizations to reconsider how they do business. ‘Digital transformation’ has emerged to engage customers, improve efficiencies, and fend off threats from rivals. It’s driving the need to rethink application design that delivers information in context and automates tasks that must behave consistently across diverse mobile devices and all digital touchpoints. Common approaches include cloud-first and mobile-first strategies that accelerate the use of cloud services but also often forces an unwieldy redistribution of workloads across hybrid IT infrastructure. APIs have emerged as integration enablers, and API management is now integral to IT and development discipline. But APIs are only part of a broader toolchain needed to deliver web and mobile apps. Emerging cloud-native app platforms for hybrid infrastructure represent the next-generation enabling technology needed by enterprises that seek transformative means to engage customers and craft new competitive advantages. In this webinar Carl Lehmann, principal analyst at 451 Research and Sumit Sarkar, chief researcher at Progress will discuss the business and technical considerations for API management within a broader context of application strategies and hybrid IT integration by: • Describing digital transformation and how it is used to create competitive advantage • Identifying the critical technology enablers needed for execution • Defining the role of APIs as accelerants to new ways of doing business * Planning for rapid delivery of new application experiences in response to digital transformation * Understanding backend requirements for web and mobile app delivery beyond API Management AppDev, DevOps, integration and API development professionals alike will learn how to reconsider their development strategies and integration toolchains to become core enabling assets for digital transformation.
