These are the slides for the Upperside Webinar I talked at.
The acquisition of AddLive by SnapChat created some discomfort among companies using a WebRTC API platform. It made the threat, well known to all those building their future on someone else’s service, apparent and real. If you are now planning your service the first decision to be made is whether to build your own infrastructure or use an API platform.
Should decisions be made only in light of current happenings in the market? Are there more options except for to build or use a service?
The selection of an API platform is an important one. There are over 20 such platforms available. But they are different. They don't offer the same set of capabilities, they aren't focused on the same types of use cases and customers. The selection process requires an understanding of the use case, the business values, the features and requirements you have. In this webinar, we will review the various KPIs and selection criteria, offering an instruction manual for vendor selection and self built infrastructure options.
