APIs are transforming the web economy and forcing changes in Web business models. Darwin's imperative - adapt or perish - has never been more apt. Much like the changes from direct to indirect channels in 20th century business, APIs represent an indirect channel to customers, led by developers and applications. Learn about successful adaptations to this environment and how to help others understand the API imperative.

  • GreggMA Gregg Alpert, Developer Relations & Startup Liaison at Pearson Sam, great presentation. I particularly like slide 133 - 'developers now sit between you and your customers, they are like the retail store in the value chain.' I am really excited by the rapid innovation occurring through the use of APIs. This presentation frames APIs in a way that will be useful when speaking to those who are yet to see the importance of APIs. 1 year ago

  • Venkat101 Venkat Venkatraman, Professor of Management at Boston University Sam-- Loved the presentation. I think few truly understand the power of APIs. Most business strategists have not grasped the power and potential of APIs in ways to understand their strategic options and growth potential. This is a good overview that I will refer to in my own work. Thanks! 3 years ago
