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 across diverse digital devices and touchpoints. APIs have emerged as integration enablers, and their value and proliferation require they be managed as strategic assets. This calls for a lifecycle management approach to API development in combination with intelligent run-time capabilities of an enterprise-class API architecture. Lifecycle management must include strong governance over use that can track and audit changes, policies, and dependencies critical to enterprise security, governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) practices where monitoring is a critical run-time function for secure and successful API platform implementations.
