Deep-dive into APIs in a Microservice Architecture
When an API gateway enforces API governance policies, it connects with several other API management components. But there are cases where the API runtime traffic needs to be isolated from the API management traffic. For that, WSO2 has introduced WSO2 API Microgateway.
API Microgateway is a lightweight message processor for APIs which supports authentication, authorization, throttling, and analytics. API microgateway goes well with microservice architecture due to its lower startup time, lower resource consumption and the native support for container-based deployments. The API microgateway can be run in a fully controlled environment using a selected set of APIs.
During the webinar, the following areas will be covered:
* Setting up a microgateway project using the in-built CLI tool of the WSO2 API Microgateway
* Building and running a microgateway using the created project
* Running the API Microgateway on a container orchestration platform (Docker & K8s environments)

One question that our customers frequently ask us is, “How can I generate revenue from my APIs?” With the increasing demand for digital transformation, exposing services as APIs has become a key business need. As an API provider, you need an easy and flexible way to monetize your business APIs so that you can generate revenue for the use of your APIs.
Moreover, subscribers can also choose the best possible subscription plan with the optimal billing plan. Hence, enabling monetization for APIs will be beneficial for both API providers and subscribers.
You can use the new monetization features in WSO2 API Manager to create different monetization plans that can be used to charge developers and subscribers for the use of your APIs.
Join our webinar as we discuss in detail the following:
* The importance of API monetization
* Benefits of monetizing your APIs and maximizing profit generation by exposing APIs
* Collection and summarizing statistical data related to API usage
* Using a payment platform for invoicing and collecting payments
* Creating multiple revenue streams by exposing services as APIs
The cloud is rapidly becoming the de-facto standard for deploying enterprise applications. Microservices are at the core of building cloud-native applications due to its proven advantages such as granularity, cloud-native deployment, and scalability. With the exponential growth of the consumer base of these service offerings, enforcing microservice/API security has become one of the biggest challenges to overcome.
In this webinar, we will discuss:
* The need for API/Microservices Security
* The importance of delegating security enforcement to an API Gateway
* API Authentication and Authorization methodologies
* OAuth2 - The de-facto standard of API Authentication
* Protection against cyber attacks and anomalies
* Security aspects to consider when designing Single Page Applications (SPAs)
GraphQL is an emerging API standard that provides a more flexible and alternative approach for data intensive operations. It is particularly good for querying and retrieving data in optimized forms that make applications more efficient and optimal. While GraphQL focuses on what it does best, we still need to ensure that our GraphQL services are exposed in a secure, controlled, monitored, and sometimes even in a monetized environment. This is where the inclusion of an API gateway that understands GraphQL queries, mutations, and subscriptions can add significant value.
Join our webinar to learn more about the following:
* Introduction to GraphQL
* Exposing GraphQL services as managed APIs
* Rate limiting
* Invoking GraphQL APIs exposed via WSO2 API Manager

We have critically evaluated how AI will shape integration use cases, their feasibility, and timelines. Emerging Technology Analysis Canvas (ETAC), a framework built to analyze emerging technologies, is the methodology of our study.
We observe that AI can significantly impact integration use cases and identify 13 AI-based use case classes for integration. Points to note include:
Enabling AI in an enterprise involves collecting, cleaning up, and creating a single representation of data as well as enforcing decisions and exposing data outside, each of which leads to many integration use cases. Hence, AI indirectly creates demand for integration.
AI needs data, which in some cases lead to significant competitive advantages. The need to collect data would drive vendors to offer most AI products in the cloud through APIs.
Due to lack of expertise and data, custom AI model building will be limited to large organizations. It is hard for small and medium size organization to build and maintain custom models.
Join our webinar as we discuss how challenges posed by AI, such as lack of expertise, bias, and attacks would affect these use case classes.
